More Information

 The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) course teaches people how to maximize the delivery of value through products and systems.

This course will be delivered in a Live Virtual format over (4) half day sessions by our instructors.  

More than writing requirements or managing a Product Backlog, Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of all product management aspects that create value from their products. The PSPO course focuses on all of these areas to teach students how to maximize the value of software products and systems.

Subject Areas

  • Agile Product Management

  • Value-Driven Development

  • Scrum Principles & Empiricism

  • The Scrum Framework

  • Product Backlog Management

  • Release Management

Objectives

  • Students will have a clear understanding of the mechanics of Scrum and how the Product Owner role fits in

  • Students can act as a Product Owner for Scrum Teams and stakeholders

  • Students can effectively increase the business agility of their organization

Who Should Attend

The Professional Scrum Product Owner course may be valuable to all involved in product development in the Scrum framework, but has been specifically designed for those accountable for maximizing the value of delivered products and services, including:

  • Product Managers and Scrum Product Owners responsible for the delivery of a product

  • Managers responsible for a line of business or internal company system

  • Strategy Managers responsible for the overarching direction of a product or product family

Prerequisites

Attendees will be able to make the most of the class if they:

  • Have studied the Scrum Guide (required)

  • Have taken the Scrum Open (free online assessment)

  • Have taken the Applying Professional Scrum course, or have experience on or exposure to a Scrum Team

  • Possess a general understanding of requirements and requirements decomposition

  • Have been on or closely involved with a project that builds or enhances a product

  • Want to know more about how Scrum works, how to use it, and how to implement it in an organization

Assessment & Certification

Upon course completion, attendees have the opportunity to take an online assessment of their skills and earn their Professional Scrum Product Owner I (PSPO I) and/or Professional Scrum Product Owner II (PSPO II) certification.

In class, you will learn the importance of inspection, adaptation, and fast feedback cycles. To reinforce those concepts, if you attend this Scrum.org class and attempt the PSPO I certification assessment within 14 days but do not achieve a score of at least 85% you will be given a 2nd attempt at no cost.

  • All course materials and artifacts

  • One free attempt at the PSPO I assessment (does not expire) - a $200 value

    • If you attend this Scrum.org class and attempt the PSPO I certification assessment within 14 days but do not achieve a score of at least 85% you will be given a 2nd attempt at no cost

  • One discounted attempt at the PSPO II assessment (does not expire) - normally $500

About Our TrainersPTN

From Chris: "Uplifting the art and science of Product Ownership - that is what drives me. All of the classes that I teach are either focused on Product Owners or those leading or working with Product Owners. Product Ownership is the most pivotal and most misunderstood role in organizations, and I want to help set Product Owners up for success. A little about me - I have worked for over a decade in the tech industry and was a Product Owner for the majority of that time. I have been a Product Owner or served as one in 3 different organizations through my career, from startups to early-stage growth companies to public corporations. I am passionate about Product Ownership as an organizational construct and how we can use this role to help bring the human focus back to organizations. I have helped thousands of people better understand how to work with their product, who they are as a Product Owner, and what it means to be one. Join me in this class to learn how to improve as a Product Owner.”

Scrum.org maintains a defined curriculum for the Professional Scrum courses and selects only the most qualified instructors to deliver them. Each Professional Scrum Trainer is a practitioner and brings their experiences and areas of expertise to bear, but all students learn the same core course content. This consistency and quality helps students effectively apply Scrum in their organizations.

Additionally, Agile For Reality is officially recognized as a member of the Scrum.org Professional Training Network. This means we align with the Scrum Values, have Scrum.org trainers who teach a qualifying number of Scrum.org Professional Scrum classes, and are committed to improving the profession of software delivery in part by providing Scrum.org training.
