This 2-day course enables participants to understand the role of a Product Owner and few tips and techniques to maximize the value of work done as part of product development.


4 Reasons why should you choose leanpitch's CSPO Workshop?

1. This is not just another basic Scrum Workshop, this is a Product Management course using Scrum.

Our goal for the workshop is to help you get started as a Product Owner. You will pick up a product idea and work on it for two days as a Product Owner right from Product Envisioning till delivery. The workshop itself will be run using Scrum in 4 Sprints with ZERO power point slides. We will learn together about how to do Product Management using Scrum from each other. Expect to have lots of fun while you learn as the workshop is loaded with activities.

This is how our class looks

Here about our class from our participants:


2. Learn from a practicing Product Owner not a Trainer.
