26th November 2019 – This post has been updated to reflect the changes to the Professional Scrum Product Owner assessments and certifications that have been announced by What was PSPO II has been renamed to PSPO III. A new PSPO II assessment and certification has been created to take its place.

Professional Scrum Product Owner II (PSPO II) is an advanced level assessment from aimed at demonstrating that you know Scrum theory and how to apply it in the real world.

The PSPO II assessment is positioned between PSPO I and PSPO III in terms of difficulty and is an achievable certification for those that have attended a Professional Scrum Product Owner course and/or have sufficient real world experience.

The PSPO II assessment is structured in a similar way to PSPO I. It is comprised of 40 multiple-choice questions. You have 60 minutes to complete the assessment and must score 85%+ to achieve the certification. As with all assessments, it is challenging and designed to test your real understanding of Scrum.

How Do I Pass The PSPO II Assessment?

The first and best preparation for the Professional Scrum Product Owner II (PSPO II) assessment is to attend the Professional Scrum Product Owner course. It will teach you all the theory you need with real-world examples to bring your learning to life. It is of course possible to take and pass PSPO II without attending a course if you have sufficient knowledge and experience.

The next step, if you haven’t already is to take and pass the PSPO I assessment. Read my earlier post on how to successfully pass PSPO I to prepare you for this assessment.

Next you should consider attending a Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced course. Whilst not essential to pass PSPO II, the content covered and the 2 days spent exploring advanced Product Owner topics will make passing the assessment significantly easier.

  1. I successfully passed and achieved the PSPO 2 after many readings and training on this course.
    I really appreciated the detailed answers provided here, it helps understand more the scrum framework – and helps for the certification

  2. I can´t resolve this question:

    A Development Team has members working from globally distributed locations. Conducting the Scrum events via a conference call is proving difficult and an impediment to the Development Team self-organising. As Scrum Master, you have raised this in the Sprint Retrospective

    Which two are the most appropriate things to do?

    I can´t understand, please , Could you writte me what the correct answer is?

    Thanks in advance
