Course Details

Professional Scrum Product Owner™ - Advanced (PSPO-A) training experience uses a unique blend of self-paced learning, live classroom hands-on activity-based exercises, and community-based aftercare helping experienced Product Owners and Product Managers expand their ability to establish a vision, validate their hypotheses, and ultimately deliver more value to their stakeholders. The course goes beyond the topics explored in the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) class deepening the attendee's understanding of the role by exploring the many stances of a professional Product Owner. Students should have at least one year of Product Owner experience and practical knowledge of Scrum in order to participate in and benefit from these exercises. Having previously taken the PSPO class is recommended but not required.

  • Session 1: The Stances of the Product Owner & The Customer Representative
  • Session 2: The Visionary & The Experimenter
  • Session 3: The Decision Maker & The Collaborator
  • Session 4: The Influencer & Closing

Each session includes STARTUP activities before the session and WRAPUP activities to be completed after each session. Before, during, and after the class students can interact with other students and thought leaders in our Lean-Agile Community.

The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognised Professional Scrum Product Owner II (PSPO II) certification exam.

Learning Objectives
  • Experienced Product Owners will learn different stances a Product Owner takes in order to navigate everyday challenges
  • Modern complementary practices will be introduced through discussions, case studies and exercises
  • Students will leave with a clear understanding of Agile Product Management as they continue on their Product Owner journey
  • Learn about the various types of stakeholders that Product Owners represent and how to best work with them.
Who should attend?

This course is designed for Product Owners, Product Managers, and Business Analysts focusing heavily on Product Management skills, tools, techniques, and knowledge as part of their work on the Scrum Team. The course does not address the Scrum framework (much), and we assume people have a proper understanding of the Scrum framework. Participants should have at least one year of experience as a Product Owner or Product Manager, while multiple years of experience and having attended the Professional Scrum Product Owner course and passing PSPO is preferred, but not mandatory. Other people that might benefit from the PSPO-A course include:

  • Scrum Masters / Agile Coaches
  • Company leaders
Course Prerequisites
Assessments & Certification

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Product Owner II (PSPO II) assessment. The industry-recognized PSPO II certification requires a minimum passing score of 85%. PSPO-A class participants who attempt the PSPO II assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score at least 85% will be granted a second attempt at no additional cost. You are also entitled to a discount on the PSPO III assessment.

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 Product Owner stances 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 II 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.

Open

Tickets are avaiable

The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviours and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviours by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances:

  • Customer Representative – focused on understanding customer problems, challenges and potential opportunities
  • Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster a common understanding
  • Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation
  • Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers and the Scrum Team to act with a common purpose
  • Collaborator – seeking input, ideas and feedback from others
  • Decision Maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions

Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Product Owner and through a series of exercises combined with instruction, students gain a better understanding of what it means to deliver value and how to express that value inside and outside of the organization.
