Description

Evolve Agility’s CSPO Course is two day immersive learning experience that enables you to make a difference in the real world of work.
Certified Scrum Product Owner by Dhaval Panchal
Learning By Doing:

Scrum is easy to understand, but hard to do. The Product Owner is the most challenging role in Scrum framework. Skills needed to leading product/project Scrum development teams, to balance end-user and stakeholder needs and to manage executive expectations cannot be learned in dry lecture based environment. This course is based on techniques from Accelerated Learning and in particular principles and concepts from Training from The Back of the Room. Our participants experience Scrum concepts and principles through case-studies, games, simulations, group discussions, and role-playing exercises. That means NO POWERPOINT! - Hands on, interactive, and fun!

Know-Why, Know-What, Know-How:

You will learn practices to effectively navigate real-world complexity, and use your deeper understanding to help others appreciate the philosophy behind Agile and Scrum. Our participants are confident in their learning and have real conversations with their team, managers, and executives. You will gain actionable knowledge and skills that will distinguish you from others who are only concerned with transcribing requirements.

Are you ready?

To truly “get” Agile and start your journey into a completely new way of thinking and acting. This one-of-a-kind learning experience instills confidence through emphasis on skills development. You will uncover new pathways to constructively engage with teams and executives on difficult product management challenges. This includes application of Agile and Scrum outside of software development to engineering solutions and business functions. This course is suitable for both IT and non-IT participants.

What participants say?

“It was all positive. Great training session - and excellent trainer. Any questions were answered, not with a canned generic but with thoughtful reasoning that made it even clearer.” - Jerry Holden

“Trainer did a great job integrating his expertise, experience, and real world literature / references. Dhaval did an amazing job bringing humor into the classroom and making the discussion tangible to the work we do.”- Arlyne Aranda Clark

“The exercises in the class helped me understand the scrum framework very easily. Dhaval Panchal is a great instructor; he is very experienced and guided us through the process and explained the concepts extremely well. I truly appreciated his teaching style and how he was able to make the subject interesting and hands on. Would definitely recommend him.” - Tija Bushnaq

“I liked how interactive the session was and that we went through 3 iterations. The pictures and drawings supported my learning modality.I liked how Dhaval showed us the agile way in his own example by adjusting his teaching technique mid-course to include more examples. I also liked how specific Dhaval was in answering questions, even if they were answered, "Yes and no." With these types of questions, he gave us where the circumstances made sense, where they might, and if it was out of scope.” - Jennifer Hunt

“Dhaval's artwork was memorable - much more than the typical slideware.” - Jeff Hanson
