Professional Scrum Product Owner - Advanced Live Virtual Class, Sep 12-13, 2022
The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviors by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances:
- Customer Representative – focused on understanding customer problems, challenges and potential opportunities
- Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster common understanding
- Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation
- Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers and the Scrum Team to act with common purpose
- Collaborator – seeking input, ideas and feedback from others
- Decision Maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions
This 2-day Professional Product Owner – Advanced (PSPO-A) course focuses on helping experienced practitioners expand their ability to establish a solid vision, validate their hypotheses, and ultimately deliver more value to their stakeholders. It is intended for Product Owners who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities.
This course is an interactive, experiential workshop where attendees explore topics through a series of exercises and discussions. Students should have at least one year of Product Owner experience and practical knowledge of Scrum in order to participate in and benefit from these exercises.

What Clients Have To Say About The Trainer:
“Two days passed like a couple of hours - training was super intensive, full of different activities with involvement of the whole group generating interesting ideas and thoughts to think about afterwards.”
- Eugene Kuznetsof
“Transforming 2-day Experience: The two-day Professional Scrum Master 1 (Live Virtual) course by Wim Heemskerk was very productive and helped me to make my Scrum concepts clearer and now I am more confident in using them. The way he let us participate in tasks and made us find solutions to our doubts and tasks was a 2-day long example of a Servant Leader. He made us work in the different teams and in parallel connected the threads of Scrum values, rules and framework. The best thing about Wim is that he makes sessions very interactive and involved every member. You really justify your name Wim "The Wavemaker" :). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
- Gaurav Garttan
"Wim has been a great inspiration to me in becoming and thinking more Agile. Combining his technical background and testing skills (and with a lot of enthusiasm!), Wim showed us testers how developers think and what they need, thereby showing us testers how to keep adding value in an Agile development team. Great guy to work with and listen to!"
- Leo Thijssen. Capgemini
"I had an opportunity to work with Wim during preparations and review of a special edition of a Professional Scrum Developer course. Wim proved not only to be a great craftsman, plainly destroying every problem thrown at him, but also an extraordinary observer. His comments on improvements were precise and pushed teamwork forward a lot. In addition to that he gave a great presentation of his training skills. I'm definitely recommending him as a professional, coach and a teacher."
- Kate Hobler. Guiding organizations to make products happen
