2 Days: CSPO – Certified Scrum Product Owner
Learn how to become a Product Owner and what tools you have to drive the development of the product. While the Scrum Alliance provides a list of core concepts that must be covered in the class, each instructor creates his or her own material, allowing courses to differ based on the strengths, interests, and experiences of the instructor.
Participants should be familiar with the basics of Scrum and have read the ScrumGuide
Learn the essentials of working as a Product Owner in this two-day class. This two-day interactive course equips you with all you need to know about being an effective product owner.
At the end of the class, you will understand how you can leverage Scrum to optimise value creation and customer satisfaction. You will understand the product owner role with its authority and responsibility, and its interaction with the other Scrum roles. You will be able to create a product vision, stock and refine the product backlog, order the backlog, and systematically refine requirements. You will also be able to create a realistic release and track the project progress and understand how you can effectively collaborate with the ScrumMaster and Development Team.
The training is done with a lot of exercises. Be prepared to do hard work. The training will give you the feeling of Scrum itself.
Using anecdotes and experience, teaching the Scrum, and how to use it to be an effective leader of product development – you will learn to be a Product owner.
There is no test but you will certify if you follow and participate in class.

The uniqueness of the training is, that we do not use any slides. We cover all topics with a mix of introduction on flipcharts, hands-on-exercises and debriefings. During the training, we cover the whole course of a project with Scrum. We go all the way from Product Goal to a done Increment, in real life. This training is fun, and yet it creates real experience with all the real stuff of Scrum.
