Professional Scrum Product Owner™ III


Prove Your Distinguished level of Product Ownership Knowledge

The Professional Scrum Product OwnerTM level III (PSPO III) assessment is available to anyone who has passed the PSPO I and PSPO II assessments and wishes to demonstrate their ability to apply the Scrum framework to solving complex problems regarding product ownership in the real world. Those that pass the assessment will receive the industry recognized PSPO III Certification as an indication of their advanced knowledge and abilities pertaining to Scrum and the role of the Scrum Product Owner.

Anyone attempting the PSPO III should have in-depth Scrum and Product Owner experience and will benefit from having taken the Professional Scrum Product Owner and Professional Scrum Product Owner - Advanced: Agile Product Management courses. However, attending these courses is not required nor is it sufficient for certification. The PSPO III assessment is very difficult, and consists of multiple-choice and essay questions with an emphasis on the essay questions.

Prepare for the Assessment

The PSPO assessments are grounded in the Professional Scrum Product Owner subject areas. The assessment is exhaustive and rigorous. Many questions ask you to think about or interpret the meaning from the Scrum Guide, apply content from the PSPO I subject areas, the PSPO II Subject Areas, the Product Owner Learning Path, and the application of your own experience. Find additional information to help you prepare for the PSPO Assessment and ways to learn about Scrum.
