To be effective, Scrum Product Owners need to have a firm grasp on the value drivers for their product, and a keen sense of how to use agile practices and Scrum to maximize that value. The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) assessments allow people to validate their understanding of Scrum and product ownership, and how they would respond to real situations that would challenge them.
Those that pass the PSPO assessments will receive the corresponding industry recognized certification. There are two options for Scrum Product Owner assessment: PSPO I and PSPO II. These assessments are sequential, meaning that the PSPO I must be passed before attempting the much more difficult PSPO II.
The value of certification is intimately tied to the demonstration of knowledge needed to achieve it. By that measure, the PSPO assessments are significantly more valuable than available alternatives for Scrum Product Ownership. And, we strive to ensure that they remain valuable and relevant through frequent inspection and adaptation of the assessment content.
