Professional Scrum Product Backlog Management Skills™ Certification

Professional Scrum Product Backlog Management Skills Certification Badge

Prove your knowledge of Product Backlog Management Skills

The Professional Scrum Product Backlog Management Skills certification validates your knowledge of skills and techniques and how they are applied. Earning the PSPBM Skills certification shows that you have demonstrated an understanding on how to effectively manage a Product Backlog which is both transparent and focused on value.

This includes techniques for capturing customer needs, refining the Product Backlog, managing stakeholder expectations, and using empiricism for a competitive advantage.

PSPBM Skills includes questions from the following Focus Areas as defined in the Professional Scrum Competencies. While attendance is not a prerequisite, attending a Professional Scrum Product Backlog Management (PSPBM) skills course is strongly recommended. In addition, a strong understanding of Scrum is foundational to performing well on the PSPBM Skills certification; having earned your Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) or Professional Scrum Product Owner I (PSPO I) will be advantageous, though not required.

The focus areas that this test draws from are those that concern Product Backlog management.

Unlike other Scrum certifications that are awarded for attendance in a class, earning a certification requires proof of knowledge and understanding by passing the certification test. You can take the Professional Scrum certification test whether you have attended a class or not, though each training class is a great learning experience and includes a free attempt at the associated certification.

Protecting the integrity of the certification process is very important to us. By taking a test with you agree to abide by our Standard of Conduct. You will not receive information about the specific questions that were answered correctly or incorrectly, however  you will receive a breakdown of your performance based on the Professional Scrum Competencies.
