This is my first post on this forum. I wanted to say thank you to those of you who contribute often as I have read many discussions before I attempted my first assessment. And with your help I have successfully passed the Professional Scrum Master assessment a couple of weeks ago. I have been using scrum for a couple of years now and wanted to enhance my knowledge of the subject so I earned my certification.

Through the process of reading books and reading the discussions through forums like this one, my knowledge has increased tenfold. I highly recommend anyone who is sitting on the fence about taking the assessment to do so as it was an eye opener for myself.

I am now determined to pass the product owner assessment. I have been working with the product owner at my current company for some time and have been reading books as I did for the scrum master assessment. I was wondering if anybody had some suggestions for books that they read that they found useful. I have listed the 2 books below I have read that I found to be engaging.

Agile Product Management with Scrum by Roman Pichler

Agile Product Management with Scrum by Ken Schwaber

Thank you in advance for you help.

Hi !

I did the same path as you. As a Scrum Master, I feel the need to understand well the role of the PO.

I will add "Scrum Product Ownership" from Robert Galen to your book list.
Good luck

a useful and fast summary is to watch this short (15 min) you tube:

I hope that this is useful

Thank you for the recommendations.

I'll be looking into both.

I'd recommend taking a look at this article that I wrote:

And if you do go down the road of taking the PSPO assessment, I'd be interested in any feedback you might have on how my article helped or where it was lacking. Looking for customer feedback... where have I heard that before? ;-)

I'd be happy to pass along any feedback I can.

Thank you
