Event Details

Learn the secrets of the most successful Scrum Product Owners

What happens when you and your team deliver a monster project—after living and breathing it for days, weeks or months—only to realize it’s no longer needed, not what the client wants, or doesn’t provide the value you expected? Probably nothing good.

Get off that treadmill and discover how you can quickly figure out where to start, get feedback fast, and recognize what to do next. This two-day Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) course offers you a new way to think about complexity and change. You’ll gain the ability to identify early value and mitigate risk, even on large projects, and become a more effective Product Owner for any Scrum team.

Come prepared to participate! Instead of death-by-PowerPoint, Agile For All’s brain-friendly training style means you’ll dig deep into a real-world project, learn by doing, and practice your new skills.

You’ll discover how to harness complexity and change for your advantage. You’ll see how to build learning into your projects. And you’ll find new ways to communicate effectively with your team and stakeholders.

With successful course completion, you achieve the designation of Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Product Owner®.

Course Topics & Learning Objectives

Take advantage of our industry experience and immerse yourself in the major skillsets and practices you need to succeed as a Scrum Product Owner. Throughout this CSPO course, you’ll:

  • Explore the mindset mindset of an effective Product Owner, especially how to think about complexity and change and their impact on projects, products, and planning

  • Understand the role of the Product Owner in the Scrum Framework

  • Learn key practices and tools for Product Owners not covered in Scrum, including what’s required to build and maintain a good product backlog

By the end of our time together, you’ll be able to:

  • Define good Product Ownership and illustrate that definition with examples from your own experience

  • Explain the Scrum Framework with emphasis on the Product Owner’s role in it

  • Explain why things are predictable sometimes and not others—and how to tell the difference in advance

  • Explain the seven Lean Disciplines and what they have to do with effective Product Ownership

  • Describe how to structure work for a project or product to benefit from change

  • Write a clear Product Vision statement

  • Use Feature Mining to find a first slice of a big idea (such as a project or new product) that will produce early value, learning and/or risk mitigation

  • Write clear, valuable user stories

  • Slice big user stories into small ones

  • Structure a product backlog to have just the right amount of detail at the right time—not too early or too late

  • Forecast a release (date/scope) over a product backlog and account for risk
