The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) is a 2-day course that focuses on being a professional Product Owner. Being a professional Product Owner encompasses more than writing requirements or managing a Product Backlog.
Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of all product management aspects, including but not limited to product ownership, that drives value from their products.
The PSPO is the cutting-edge course for Product Owners, Agile product managers and anyone responsible for a product’s success in the market. In this course, students will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and team based exercises. The breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product will become more clear from an Agile perspective. Metrics are identified to track the creation of value and the successful delivery of the product to the marketplace.
The PSPO course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises.Who Should Attend
The PSPO course may be interesting to all involved in software development upon the Scrum framework, but has been specifically conceived for those responsible over products from a business and product management perspective and taking up the highly accountable role of Scrum Product Owner.
Attendees make the most of the class if they:
- Have studied the Scrum Guide (required).
- Have passed the Scrum Open assessment.
- Have a solid understanding of Scrum either through working on a Scrum Team, or through having taken part in Scrum.org's Applying Professional Scrum or similar course.
