Professional Scrum Product Owner Geneva, Jun 29-30, 2021
This course will be in English. Ce cours sera donné en Anglais
The PSPO course teaches people how to maximize the return on investment (ROI) and optimize the total cost of ownership (TCO) of products and systems.
Agile product ownership today requires more than knowledge of how to write a user story or manage a product backlog. Professional Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of everything that drives value from their products. PSPO helps participants develop and solidify this understanding―from early stakeholder management to release planning and delivery.

The "Professional Scrum Product Owner" (PSPO) course teaches participants how to be an Agile program, product, or IT development manager in a complex environment. Traditional Scrum courses take a myopic view of the Product Owner role, ignoring large aspects of product management. This course looks much more broadly than that; it also covers the creation and retention of value.
Through this lens, it then teaches participants specific tactics and strategies for maximizing the flexibility and responsiveness of software product creation. Organizations need to be "Agile"; it is no longer an option. They must be able to deliver new or enhanced products and systems as dictated by clients, competition, and business pressures. As the environment they operate within changes, they need to be flexible while adhering to their purpose. As they flex, they need to be both predictable and efficient, while controlling risk. If Product Management were simple, there would be no need for this course.
However, product managers are responsible for juggling with competing priorities of clients, the marketplace, and their business, all while managing risk within a state of constant change. Additionally they must organize and prioritize the competing needs and interests of their own company, from systems architecture to financial performance and strategic alignment. These responsibilities are very difficult in large, global organizations that develop and market interrelated products and product families. But they are also difficult in smaller companies whose clients require real-time continuous improvement. PSPO teaches techniques for fulfilling these responsibilities.
During the course, we address how to optimize the value of current systems. Participants learn how to progressively prioritize requirements and work to become more Agile. The goal is to release products as early as needed, and no faster than clients can absorb. The steps to reach this end point will be addressed in detail.
Assessment Following the course, participants will have the opportunity to take an assessment of their skills. To learn more about Scrum.org assessments, visit: https://www.scrum.org/assessments. Pyxis is glad to partner with Scrum.org and Ken Schwaber to offer this Agile training course.
