Course Description

Professional Scrum Product Owner is a 2-day course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises where students experience how the Scrum framework improves product development efforts.

Over the 2 days, students will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises. The breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product will become more clear from an Agile perspective. Metrics are identified to track the creation of value and the successful delivery of the product to the marketplace.

The PSPO course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises

The Professional Scrum Product Owner course has two associated assessments with two levels of certification: PSPO I and PSPO II. When you complete a Professional Scrum Product Owner course you will receive a password to take the PSPO I assessment. If you pass this assessment you will receive the industry-recognized “PSPO I” certification and your name will be posted on the Scrum.org website.

Who Should Attend

The Professional Scrum Product Owner course may be interesting to all involved in software development upon the Scrum framework, but has been specifically conceived for those responsible over products from a business and product management perspective and taking up the highly accountable role of Scrum Product Owner. No pre-existing knowledge of Scrum is required to attend.
