    Certified Scrum Product Owner Training Ÿ 2 Days


    This two-day Certified Scrum Product Owner certification course provides the jumping off point for you to take on the hardest role in Scrum, being a Product Owner.  Being an effective Product Owner is difficult, but, if executed well, it can be incredibly rewarding as speed to market and value will grow substantially.  On completion of the course you are registered as a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) with a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance ( where valuable materials and information are available exclusively to CSPOs. 

    You will learn essential concepts and tools of Scrum, as well as supporting methods like kanban and Lean Startup techniques.  The focus on this course is providing real-world techniques that have been proven effective by product owners in hundreds of actual projects.  At the strategic level, you will learn how to articulate a clear vision with measurable business objectives, create forward looking roadmaps, and sequence features to market to maximize ROI within the context of product objectives.  At the tactical level, you will learn how to effectively groom the product backlog, plan releases and sprints, work with Scrum teams to realize polished products, and track and report progress.

    This course is taught by leading agile practitioners with decades of real-world industry experience at companies ranging from small businesses to the Fortune 100. Exercises, demonstrations, facilitated discussions, case studies, tool and template examples and more are interwoven throughout to illustrate the principles being taught in a comprehensive fashion interactively tailored to the class’s needs, based on real world experience, not ivory-tower theory.
