Course Overview


TrustPilot Product Owner review

The feedback above was unsolicited and provided for the internationally acclaimed Professional Scrum Product Owner course from, delivered by Turbo Scrum and taught by Derek Davidson PST, CST.

As you probably know, all Professional Scrum Trainers teach from the same material. But HOW they train? Well, that's very different.

Derek has invested decades into the study of Scrum and agility. As a result, he was the first (and currently only) Scrum Trainer in Europe certified and licenced by both and the Scrum Alliance as a Scrum Trainer. He has invested decades of study into teaching technical material for adults. Consequently, his teaching style makes the learning experience fun and engaging.

What Will You Learn?

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.

What’s Different About Live, Online Course Delivery?

Delivering any training course online requires a different set of technology and skills than an in-person course does. For example:

  • Exercises have to be re-written or replaced while training objectives are still maintained
  • Delivery style has to be adapted for an ‘audio/video delay’ environment
  • Audience engagement has to be achieved in different ways
  • Technology must be simple enough for students to use, powerful enough for the trainer to use, and invisible enough not to impede learning

Addressing this new environment requires a deep investment. Even before Covid-19 affected the way training is delivered, Derek had invested hundreds of hours in creating online video courses. The experience of doing this has helped enormously in re-providing his in-person course as a live, online, course.

As a result of the global lockdown, and the demand for training delivery online, Derek attended online courses delivered by experts in the field, to learn the craft of online delivery. He then devoted additional hundreds of hours to converting his in-person course before even thinking about live, online delivery.

What Does the Course Offer?

As well as the course content, delivered as described above, there are exercises, quizzes, puzzles and simulations where delegates work as part of small teams within virtual breakout rooms to cement the information and techniques taught

After the course, delegates receive a .PDF document of the material and the exercise outcomes.

Your Trainer – Derek Davidson

DerekDerek has been applying agile ways of working since before the Agile Manifesto. In 1999, he started with Extreme Programming. Later, he began using and then went on to earn his Professional Scrum Trainer licence and his Certified Scrum Trainer licence. At time of writing, he is the only person in Europe dual licenced as both a CST and a PST.

During his twenty years as an agilist, Derek has lived by the motto ‘Practicing what I teach’. He spent considerable time applying Scrum as a contractor and consultant, in the role of both Product Owner and Scrum Master. He brings these experiences with him to every course that he teaches.

Before becoming an agilist, Derek spent 18 years working with the Armed Services. He learned the art of leadership at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell and applied those lessons over the rest of his career working with senior leadership in the Armed Services, Government and Commercial sectors.

Between the Armed Services and becoming a Scrum Trainer, Derek has worked at all levels in the software industry from programmer to CTO. More recently, he has been working with non-software teams, especially internal audit.

This rich set of experiences and knowledge uniquely qualifies Derek to teach Scrum and to help you make the best investment in your Scrum journey.
