It’s been said that the Product Owner is the most difficult out of the Scrum roles. Not only is it a challenging and vital role, but a Product Owner also needs to take accountability for the key business decisions related to the product. Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO®) is an innovative, interactive, online workshop that leads attendees into the world of Agile Product Management.
Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO℠) is an in-depth immersion into the world of the Product Owner role. The class does a deep dive into the role of the Product Owner and how they identify and work with their Stakeholders, facilitate product discovery, test assumptions, and make sure their Team builds the right thing in the right order.
Certified Scrum Professionals challenge their teams to improve the way Scrum and Agile principles are applied. From customer discovery and development to business models and competitive analysis, this class explores the role of the Product Owner and how they help launch new Teams, work with their Stakeholders on planning and forecasting, and work with multiple Teams on their backlogs.
Through our team of dedicated Certified Scrum Trainers, Braintrust delivers more than 200 Certified Classes each year. Check out our upcoming schedule or browse our entire class catalog.
Available—Being available is key, because you are the single source of truth for the Product. That means you have to be there for anyone who has a question. You need to attend every Spring Planning and Retrospective. There is no one formula for availability, however. Each Product Owner needs to find the right balance for themselves.
Accountable—Accountability is not just for the doing of the Product Owner job (vision, roadmap, prioritizing, Product Backlog,). You are also accountable for the value delivered from the Product, as well as the financials of the Product. You need to focus on delivering return on investment (ROI) to the customers and to the Organization.
Empowered—Empowerment comes from the culture of the Organization. The Org must respect the decisions made by the Product Owner, even if mistakes are made.
Knowledgable—This comes from all angles. You need to be knowledgeable about the Product, the process, the Team, the technology, the market, the Product strategy, the competition, the marketing, the legal and compliance aspects. Knowledge is important because you are the single source of truth as the Product Owner.
