Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) Workshop (SCRUMPO)


Course Overview

As a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) you are accountable for generating the value of a product resulting from the work of a Scrum team, by working closely with stakeholders and focusing on outcomes that satisfy your customer needs.

The highly interactive course will provide you with an understanding of how to apply an agile mindset through the use of the scrum framework. We will explore discovery and validation techniques to help teams build sustainable products that balance customer desirability, business viability, and technical feasibility.

The course is led by a world-class Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) who combine their real-world experience with practical tools, real-life examples, lively discussion, and interactive exercises to help you learn and embed key learning from the course.

After successfully completing this class, participants will be registered with the Scrum Alliance as Certified Scrum Product Owners (CSPO) and will have online access to the class training materials and any updates for one year. This course is also approved for 16 PDU's with the PMI.
