Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO)

CSPO Course Outline Scrum_Product_Owner_Horiz

Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) Training is specifically intended for those individuals who will become, work with, or appoint Product Owners.  The CSPO course covers Scrum from the point of view of the Product Owner Role, and then goes into further detail on this role as well as spending time on “skills training” such as Roles Workshops, Project Chartering and User Stories.  Whilst there is some overlap in material between the CSM and the CSPO, many students, especially those going into the ScrumMaster role have found it valuable to attend both classes as the perspective the material is approached from differs.
