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 class and passing PSPO-I is preferred, but not mandatory.
What is the class?
Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced (PSPO-A) is a hands-on, activity-based course that focuses on 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 by deepening the attendee’s understanding of the role through the exploration of the many stances of a professional Product Owner.
The areas of focus are:
- Experienced Product Owners will learn different stances a Product Owner takes in order to navigate everyday challenge.
- 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.
