Professional Scrum Product Owner
Live Virtual Class, July 22-23, 2023
The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) course is on how to maximize the value of software products and systems. Product Ownership in Scrum requires more than knowledge of how to write user stories or manage a Product Backlog. Professional Scrum Product Owner is a cutting-edge course for Product Owners, Agile product managers and anyone responsible for a software product’s success in turbulent markets.
After the class, students are eligible for the PSPO I assessment certification. Passing the assessment will give you the industry recognized PSPO I certification. This certification will NEVER expire, and it makes you part of an elite community of PSPO I badge holders.
The PSPO course addresses a significant skill gap in the software development industry that we have seen growing over the last few years. An effective Product Owner is one of the best predictors of product success, but many Product Owners seem to misunderstand the breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product. Maximizing Return on Investment (ROI), optimizing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and capitalizing on product Agility are the things a Product Owner is intimately concerned with that the PSPO course focuses on.
Who should attend?
The Professional Scrum Product Owner course is for anyone involved in software development using the Scrum Framework. It is particularly beneficial for those people within an organization accountable for maximizing the value of work done by the Development team, including the Product Owner, Product Manager, and Leadership Team.
On day one, the training focuses on the fundamentals that are essential for understanding and satisfying the role of the Product Owner in the context of product management and Scrum. The course not only provides a greater understanding of the role itself but also gives you a clearer idea of the principles of agile project management by the Product Owner.

- Agile Product Management
- Value-Driven Development
- Scrum Principles & Empiricism
- The Scrum Framework
- Product Backlog Management
- Release Management
Day two stresses on a practical approach to teaching the methodological skills the Product Owner needs for successfully handling a Scrum project.

- The relevance of user stories
- Setting and achieving strategic product goals
- Release strategies and planning with Scrum
- Estimating and prioritizing requirements
- Forecasting capability with Scrum
- Product development involving multiple teams

The 2-day Professional Scrum Product Owner course covers the principles and (empirical) process theory underpinning the Scrum Framework, and the role of the Product owner in it. This course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises, and teaches what is at the heart of the Scrum and Agile movement.
PSPO is the cutting-edge course for effective Product Owners and for anyone working as part of product management team toward maximizing value of work. The course includes advanced thinking for product ownership and behavioral shifts.
