You have the option to attend either an IN-PERSON training event or book onto the ONLINE version of the course, both of which are two days in duration.
This course is aimed at those likely to be undertaking that role on a Scrum project, or those looking to improve their skill as a practising Product Owner.
This course is popular for clients who need closer collaboration between the customer and the delivery team, in order to focus on priority work and sustain high quality solutions.
Delegates will benefit from a balanced blend of theory and practical exercises which promote the importance of the Product Owner role in the Scrum team.
From our extensive experience of running both online and in-person training, we have developed and iterated on a training style to manage both your energy level and attention span! By using self-led exercises and group discussions we aim to ensure you get the most of your training experience.
The course will be a mix of theory delivered by slides and exercise-based learning. Although each course we deliver is slightly different and tailored to our delegates needs and circumstances, the core agenda of the Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) class set out by the Scrum Alliance must include the following:
- What is Scrum?
- Product Backlogs
- Release Planning
- Product Visioning
- User Stories
- Prioritisation Techniques
- Estimation Theory
- The Product Owner Role
- Reporting & Release Management
Product Managers, project managers, account managers, sales teams, programme managers, client representatives etc. As this course focusses on the Product Owner role, those with direct customer engagement and budget responsibilities will gain most from this course.
A basic grasp of agile principles may help, but is not essential for this course.
For IN-PERSON events, this course will be delivered in a large, well-ventilated conference room. The number of places available for this course is based on attendees working at a safe, social distance throughout the course.
The venue/s we have carefully selected for these events have been chosen based on updated health and safety protocols to ensure your safety and peace of mind.
All of the learning materials you will need will be supplied for this course, including student handouts, pens and drawing equipment. You will not need a laptop or device for this course.
You may wish to bring your own hand sanitiser and/or water bottle if you prefer. Full details of the venue will be sent with your joining instructions shortly before the course date.
Attending the ONLINE version of this course is simple, you just need access laptop/PC with a stable internet connection, audio/video and microphone capabilities.
We use ZOOM as our video conferencing tool of choice, and miro.com for sharing the course materials. We advise our attendees to download the client versions of these tools onto their machines before the course if possible, however both tools can be accessed via most web browsers.
We will send you a digital version of the course notes which you can print off if you like, but this is not mandatory.
Full details of the tools we use during the course (only with setup instructions) will be sent with your joining instructions shortly before the course date.
Where can I attend a CSPO class?

What is a CSPO?
This course is endorsed by the Scrum Alliance, Inc (www.scrumalliance.org) and on completion entitles the delegate to claim a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) license, valid for two years.

Is my booking refundable/transferrable?
