Professional Scrum Product Owner - Advanced
Live Virtual Class, November 14-15, 2023
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 behaviours 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.
