How To Pass The Professional Scrum Product Owner III (PSPO III) Assessment From

Here are some tips on taking (and passing) the Professional Scrum Product Owner III (PSPO III) assessment and gaining certification from

Firstly review the guidance from on how the PSPO III assessment is structured so you know what to expect logistically.

Then take a look at my tips on passing the Professional Scrum Product Owner I (PSPO I) and the Professional Scrum Product Owner II (PSPO II) assessments. A pass on PSPO I and PSPO II is strongly advised before moving onto the more challenging PSPO III assessment.

Try our Professional Scrum Product Owner III (PSPO III) practice assessment. This is not created or endorsed by, but will give you a good idea of what to expect when you take the real thing.

Take our Simple Guide To Scrum Video Course. This covers much of the content from our live courses and is a fast, effective and low-cost way to learn about Scrum.

The key to passing PSPO III is having a very strong understanding of Scrum theory and the role of the Product Owner, combined with a number of years experience using Scrum in the real world. A strong pass mark in the PSPO I and PSPO II assessments should mean you are well on the way to having the right level of knowledge.

To further strengthen your chances you should consider attending a Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced course from This course covers all the material you will need to prepare for PSPO II. The theory will be brought to life with real-world examples from your instructor and will set you up to take and pass the PSPO III assessment.

If you would like to join one of my classes, you can see my upcoming PSPO-A class list here.

I would also strongly suggest reading this book (as a minimum). It neatly summarises Scrum and the Product Owner role and covers all the topics you will be expected to understand for the assessment:

PSPO III is difficult and less than 500 people have achieved it to date. However, it is not impossible so if you prepare well, understand the theory underpinning Scrum and the role of the Product Owner, you will be able to pass.
