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.

Course Overview

The Professional Scrum Product Owner is a hands-on, activity-based course where students explore Professional Scrum and develop an understanding of the Product Owner’s critical role on the Scrum Team. 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.

Being a Product Owner is a key position that sets the tone for product leadership and the definition of success in the organization. As a Product Owner, modern product management practices and mindsets are expected to be put into practice daily. The Product Owner is accountable for and has the authority to maximize the value of the product and the effectiveness of the Product Backlog.

There are currently no public PSPO classes scheduled! Check the course schedule for all available classes or contact us for private PSPO classes.

Our training is delivered as an interactive, activity-based course over half-day sessions using Microsoft Teams, and Mural. Throughout the class, students learn several Product Ownership practices that they can use once they leave the classroom while also receiving an introduction to Agile Product Management. Between sessions, we provide additional reading, writing, and watching activities to maximise the learning opportunities and complement the classroom experience.

  • Session 1: Agile Product Management
  • Session 2: The Scrum Framework
  • Session 3: Value-driven Development
  • Session 4: Product Backlog Management & Releases

After the conclusion of the class, we provide access to a community of peers and continued access to the trainer through office hours, quarterly catchups, and constant engagement. All students are given a password to take the PSPO1 assessment to maximise validated learning. If they take it within 14 days and are unsuccessful, they will be granted a second attempt.

As part of our validated learning experience, we provide a 30-minute learning review, a one-hour coaching session, and access to future courses at a 30% discount on future classes.

The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) is delivered as a flipped learning experience divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities that are provided for self-study complemented by 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural.

This course is appropriate for students in any industry where teams are working to solve complex problems. The Professional Scrum Product Owner course is for:

  • Professionals interested in starting a career as a Product Owner
  • Product Owners with some experience in the role that are looking to improve their understanding or fix their misconceptions of Scrum and the Product Owner role

Learning Experience

Flipped Learning Experience

Flipped Learning Experience

Flipped learning is an alternative format that moves some or all of the learning of theory away from the classroom, and reflecting and practising is done in the class (hence the name "Flipped Learning").

Benefits of flipped learning

  • Consuming content in smaller iterations helps learning stick
  • Multiple reflection cycles make the practical application of learning more impactful
  • Variations of learning environment cater better for personal learning styles
  • Continued access to learning materials

Flipped Learning Experience Overview

This class comes with 16 hours of live virtual classroom experience. The course content is divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities that are provided for self-study complemented by 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural. These live interactive workshops create a dynamic and interactive environment where we dive into the core concepts of Agile Product Management and the accountability of the Product Owner through group activities, interactions, and sharing experiences, all with the guidance of an expert Professional Scrum Trainer.

Obtaining new knowledge through self-study materials along with having an in-depth, rich engagement in a class allows students to enjoy learning that sticks. Students will complete the course ready to take the globally recognised Professional Scrum Product Owner I (PSPOI) certification exam which is included in the course fee.

Student will leave this course with an application for Professional Scrum.

Prerequisites

  • Computer - Your computer will need to be fast enough to run both Microsoft Teams and Mural. We recommend 2 monitors so that you can see everyone and the work easily.
  • Webcam - Please consider your staging and presence; what others see when you are on video. Try to avoid backlighting that renders you in shadow, the up-nostril, the baldie, or the half-head. 80% of human communication comes from body language and other visual queues. Consider your camera angles and try to have a view that is as close to what you would expect in person across a table.
  • Internet - We recommend a strong internet to support high fidelity video both from you and with us.

Supporting people with disabilities

We do our best to support people with disabilities. Please ask us about what we can do. Closed Captioning - For persons who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, live captions allow to see what others are saying. Class Recording - A meeting recording can be helpful for people with cognitive difficulties, for example. You can go through the recording at your own pace as well as go back to double-check anything you might have missed.
