Course Format

The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) Course with Certification is broken into 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered over Microsoft Team and Mural. These 1/2 day sessions may be offered in full-days or half-days over one or more weeks, depending on this class’s format, described below in the “Learning Experience” section.

Each 1/2 day live virtual session delivered by one of our lean-agile practitioner instructors is divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities provided for self-study that complement the live session.

Learning Experience for this PSPO

Our courses are traditionally interactive 2-day learning experiences within a classroom setting, emphasizing valuable, hands-on outcomes. Immersion Training offers a refreshing alternative, breaking the class into shorter sessions across several weeks. This format not only extends learning into real-world business applications but also incorporates reflective sessions for continuous improvement, making it a highly effective and practical approach.

Key Features of Immersion Training Classes:

  1. Incremental Classroom Learning: In Immersion Training, classes are concise, live sessions spanning several weeks. Each session introduces and practices a new concept, allowing students to digest the material at a comfortable pace and ensuring a deep understanding before moving forward. Sessions are capped at 4 hours to keep learners engaged and to foster an effective learning environment.
  2. Outcome-Based Assignments: These assignments, tied to each classroom session, are designed to directly apply the concepts learned. They focus on outcomes rather than outputs, catering to a variety of backgrounds and skill levels. The emphasis is on innovation and boundary-pushing, not just completion, making the assignments relevant for both new and seasoned learners.
  3. Facilitated Reflections: After the initial session, each class starts with a reflection period. Here, students and their Professional Scrum Trainer discuss the assignments, sharing challenges and successes. These sessions are vital for learning, encouraging peer interaction and actionable feedback, and fostering collective growth and understanding.

Venue Details

Join us for a virtual experience via Microsoft Teams and Mural!

Virtual Classroom Details

  • Each session lasts between 60-75 minutes with short breaks of 5-10 minutes.
  • We've chosen not to record the workshop to foster an open environment.
  • We cap our workshop at 12 participants for a more intimate experience.
  • Tools you'll be using: Microsoft Teams, Mural, and Mighty Networks.
  • Online learning is almost on par with in-person sessions. Just remember, collaborating online might take a tad longer.

Golden Rules

  • Keep those cameras and mics on.
  • Punctuality is key.
  • No multitasking with meetings, calls, or emails during sessions.
  • Stay aware and let others have their moment.
  • Stick to the agenda. If you need extra guidance, there's a free coaching session for each participant.

Inclusive Features

  • Live captions are available in any language supported by Microsoft Teams for our hearing-impaired friends and those who need a little extra help.
  • After the class, join the "naked Agility with Martin Hinshelwood Community" to connect with like-minded individuals.

Payment & Cancellation

  • Payment is upfront, with no exceptions.
  • UK clients, please note there's an additional VAT.
  • We're not liable for any costs from cancellations or rescheduling.
  • We need a certain number of participants to run the class.
  • Rarely, courses might be cancelled due to insufficient participants. We're not responsible for any related costs.
  • You can cancel up to the online ticketing deadline. Refunds might have some deductions.
  • Postponing? Give us at least three business days' notice. Otherwise, it's considered a cancellation with no refund.
  • Electronic manuals and Scrum.org assessment fees are covered. Physical manuals? Not so much.

Setting Up Your Virtual Space

Participating in virtual classes requires some prep. Here's what we recommend:

  • Equipment: A computer that can run Mural and a device for Microsoft Teams. Multiple monitors are a plus but not a must.
  • MS Teams: Install it from here. It's best to use the app on Mac, Windows, or mobile rather than the web interface.
  • Appearance: We've seen it all - shadows, half-faces, up-nose, and more. Being visible and present is crucial. Think of how you'd present yourself in a physical meeting.
  • Camera: A good quality one is essential. The Elgato Facecam comes highly recommended.
  • Lighting: Ensure you're well-lit. Consider getting a face light, especially if you're in darker environments.
  • Microphone: Laptop mics aren't the best. Consider investing in a quality one, like the Elgato Wave or Yeti Blue Microphone. Use Krisp Noise Canceling to prevent background noise.
  • Background: A wall behind you works best if you're using a virtual background. Curious about my background? Just ask!
  • Attire: Wear what makes you comfortable. Whether it's formal wear, casuals, or even jammies, as long as it's appropriate, you're good to go.

Remember, the key is to be present and engaged. Let's make the most of this virtual experience together!
