Professional Scrum Product Owner - Advanced
Live Virtual Class, September 26-29, 2022
This 4-half 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. The PSPO-A course is intended for Product Owners who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities.
The course goes beyond the topics explored in the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) class by deepening the attendee's understanding of the role through the exploration of the many stances of a professional Product Owner. 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 a practical knowledge of Scrum in order to participate in and benefit from these exercises. Having previously taken the PSPO class is recommended, but not required.
The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Product Owner II certification exam (PSPO II).

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
Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Product Owner and through a series of exercises combined with instruction, students gain a better understanding of what it means to deliver value and how to express that value inside and outside of the organization.
- Product Vision
- Leadership Styles
- Evidenced Based Management

About Our Trainers
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. Through my career as a Product Owner, Product Manager, Scrum Master, Business Analyst, and Agile Coach, I believe in bringing the human focus back to organizations. We all spend a large percentage of our waking hours "doing work", so we would be well-served to make that time as enjoyable and purposeful as we can."
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.
