I am a BA from the IIBA school and want to transition to Certified Scrum Product Owner.
I am stuck at taking the training from a value add training institute and getting certified.
But even before that, what should a BA keep in mind before the transition.
So the broader question being
1) What should the BA do while transition from BA to CSPO
2) What shouldnt the BA do while transition from BA to CSPO.

Hello Ambarish,

Thank you for your question.

You might be confusing our product ownership program (PSPO) with the Scrum Alliance (CSPO).

Even so, I think you are wondering about transitioning from the role of Business Analyst to a Scrum product ownership role. If this is the case and you are looking to learn more about Scrum Product Ownership in general, I recommend starting by reading the Scrum Guide,

Checking out Ken Schwaber's book, Agile Project Management with Scrum,…

And having a look at the PSPO information.…

I hope this helps!
