Professional Scrum Product Owner Live Virtual Class, Dec 14-15, 2021
Why Become a Product Owner?
Being or becoming a professional Product Owner encompasses more than writing requirements or managing a to-do list called a Product Backlog. Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of all product management aspects, including but not limited to product ownership, that drives value from their products. They need to build the additional skills to see and understand where opportunities exist as well as to understand user need and delivering value to meet this.
Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) is a 2-day course that focuses on all of these areas to teach students how to maximize the value of products, services & systems delivered. PSPO is the cutting-edge course for Product Owners, Agile product managers and anyone responsible for a product’s success in the market. In this course, students will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and exercises. The breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product will become more clear from an Agile perspective.
Attending an official Scrum.org PSPO course includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Product Owner I certification (PSPO I).
What You Will Learn
