Event description


Product Ownership - the Epicenter of Effective Scrum

Scrum is simple to understand, yet can be hard to do well. The Product Owner (PO) role is central to a team's effectiveness with Scrum and Agile. Product Owners work to maximize the flow of value produced by the product delivery teams. A great PO skillset spans:

  • facilitating & negotiating internal and external stakeholder needs

  • proactively translating needs into actionable requirements in the team's product backlog

  • supporting product and project development teams throughout their planning, development and release activities

  • ensuring teams and stakeholders exercise frequent feedback cycles to guide future product plans

  • managing expectations and projections from vision through product release

Whew! What a list! Done well - product ownership sets up the organization for massive success. The product backlog feeds the teams with the "next most important" work to be done. Effective collaboration between the PO and the development team facilitates effective decision-making and quick course corrections when needed. The journey between a great new customer idea and its delivery accelerates. It's a win for the customer, the business, and all the team members, including the PO.

Learn the Nuts & Bolts of Great Product Ownership

Such skills are hard to learn via lecture - so this workshop is hands-on and interactive. It lays the foundation for Agile Business Leadership using the Scrum framework. Short, focused presentations cover concepts and practices. Immersive exercises reinforce each concept and skill with hands-on practice. This is no Powerpoint snoozefest. Get a taste of what you'll experience with this time lapse of a key 10 minute overview of all the elements in Scrum:

By the conclusion of this dynamic workshop - you will be prepared with the skills, knowledge, and experience to not only explain Scrum to colleagues, clients or interviewers, but also to put Scrum into action with your team. Become a catalyst for change by helping your teams and programs apply these concepts to become resilient, learning organizations able to thrive in today’s emerging markets.

Get your CSPO® and More!

This workshop includes:

  • Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Product Owner CSPO® certification fee

  • Two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, the largest, most established and influential professional membership and certification organization in the Agile community

  • 14 PMI PDUs for PMPs

  • 14 of the 21 contact hours needed for a PMI-ACP credential

Who Should Attend

This course is appropriate for Product Owners, Product Managers, Managers, Business Analysts and others involved in facilitating the journey of a great customer-centric idea to the realization of a solution ready for delivery. It's equally valuable for Scrum Masters, Scrum Team Members and not-so-innocent organizational bystanders wanting to collaborate with the "product folks" on agile approaches to product planning, requirements management, and release planning. This course is appropriate for folks new to the world of Agile/Scrum, as well as people whose organizations have been practicing some form of Agile for a while and need a "reset."

Workshop Agenda

The workshop includes all the material required by the Scrum Alliance for its Certified Scrum Product Owner CSPO® certification, along with stories, tips, tricks and practices to make your product backlog sing and your user stories tap dance their way to "done."

The Fine Print


  • How soon can I get my CSPO® certification? On completing your participation in the full workshop, we will let the Scrum Alliance know of your successful completion of the course. You'll receive an email from them to setup your profile on the Scrum Alliance website and then you'll be a bonafide, official CSPO®!

  • Wait! Don't I Need to Take an Exam to be Certified as a CSPO®? No. Currently the only requirement to become a CSPO® is the successful completion of the course. The Scrum Alliance is hard at work to develop an online exam for the CSPO®. So if you love taking tests, wait a bit to enroll in a CSPO® workshop. Otherwise - get it now with us!

  • Can I Miss Several Hours of the Workshop and Still be Certified? No. If you miss more than 1 hour of the workshop, you will not be eligible for certification, and you will be welcome to attend the rest of the workshop.

  • Will you feed us? YES! We believe people learn best when they are fully hydrated, caffeinated, fed and engaged in the workshop. Expect a light continental breakfast each morning, lunch, snacks and plenty of coffee, tea and water.

  • What do I need to bring to class? Just you! You won't need your laptop, tablet or even your phone. But we understand that you'll probably want to peek at your email during a break or at lunch.
