Course Description

This Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) training course is an intensive workshop on one of the most critical roles defined by the world’s most popular Agile framework: Scrum.

We use highly immersive adult learning techniques such as visual modelling, simulations, role-plays and ‘Training from the Back of the Room’ activities to enable self-directed learning and enhanced retention.

This course is organised and run using Scrum as a management framework. This allows for feedback and flexibility as well as experiencing Scrum in action throughout the course.

The Product Owner role is critical to maximising Return on Investment from agile product development / projects and is one of the most challenging yet rewarding of the agile roles. As the voice of the customer to the delivery team, a Product Owner needs to be able to work effectively not only with end users and other stakeholders but with the team on a daily basis.

This course provides guidance and practical tools for fulfilling the function of Product Ownership using the Scrum framework and a complimentary set of the most widely used Agile techniques including:

  • Collaborative Envisioning,
  • User Stories,
  • Story Mapping,
  • Minimum Viable Product (MVP) management,
  • Techniques for soliciting customer/stakeholder input on priorities,
  • Product Backlog management,
  • Rolling Release management, and
  • Release Burndown with scope tracking.

Live Virtual Training

Virtual TrainingThere’s no need to worry about missing out compared with in-person training. This course is not a series of pre-recorded videos that you passively watch. This CSPO is a live interactive virtual experience with the trainer coming to you live from Sydney, Australia. It covers all the same learning objectives as our in-person CSPOs – just using a different interaction medium. As a bonus, you will come away with a lot of practical techniques for remote working!

You can expect a highly interactive virtual learning experience with continuous live video amongst all participants. The course is designed to exploit the potential of state-of-the-art online collaboration tools as well as leveraging research-based adult eLearning approaches to maximise learner interaction and retention. All this from the comfort of your own home / office / home office!
