Event Details

The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) course teaches people how to maximize the delivery of value through software products and systems. Agile Product Ownership today requires more than knowledge of how to write a User Story or manage a Product Backlog. Professional Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of everything that drives value from their products. The PSPO course helps students develop and solidify this understanding - from early stakeholder management to release planning and delivery.


The PSPO course addresses a significant skill gap in the software development industry that we have seen growing over the last few years.


An effective Product Owner is one of the best predictors of product success, but many Product Owners seem to misunderstand the breadth of the role's responsibilities in delivering a successful product. Maximizing Return On Investment (ROI), optimizing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and capitalizing on product Agility are the things a Product Owner is intimately concerned with that the PSPO course focuses on.



The audience of the Professional Scrum Product Owner course includes those

accountable for maximizing the value delivered by products and services, including;


  • Product Managers and Scrum Product Owners responsible for the delivery of 

  • a product, from conception to customer usage.

  • IT Development Managers responsible for a line of business or internal 

  • company system. Strategy managers responsible for the overarching direction of a 

  • product or product family.

  • Syllabus

This two-day course covers the following:

 Value Driven Development - The primary job of a Product Owner is to maximize the

value created by the product for which he or she is responsible. This section covers

value drivers, and strategies for measuring them.

  • Product Management - Agile product management is different than traditional 

  • approaches. This section explores those differences, as well as how the Product 

  • Owner works in an Agile environment to deliver a product.

  • Managing Requirements - The Product Backlog is the fuel that feeds the 

  • development team, and managing it is one of the primary roles of the Scrum Product 

  • Owner. Here you will learn about User Stories, ordering and organization strategies, 

  • and Product Backlog grooming.

  • Planning Releases - What does a good release look like? Why are releases done? 

  • What impact can a bad release have on you and your customer? This section 

  • explores release strategies and how to optimize the delivery of value with them.

  • Lean Planning - A release is the first step to realizing value. What better way to learn 

  • how to plan a release than to do it? Here students cover the basics of identifying 

  • a release goal and requirements, backlog ordering, estimation, adjustment, and 

  • baseline planning.

  • Managing Products - Understanding Total Cost of Ownership is fundamental to 

  • successfully managing a product. How do you balance between optimizing the 

  • value of a release and maximizing the value of the product or system as an asset for 

  • the organization? How does that fit into your product roadmap, and why is your 

  • Development Team's "Definition of Done" so fundamental to everything that you do?

  • Certification
  • Unlike other Scrum certifications that require only class attendance, 

  • certification requires a minimum score on a rigorous assessment. The Professional 

  • Scrum Product Owner course has two associated assessments with two levels of 

  • certification: PSPO I and PSPO II. When you complete a Professional Scrum Product 

  • Owner course you will receive a password to take the PSPO I assessment one time 

  • within a 14-day period following the course. If you pass this assessment you will 

  • receive the industry-recognized "PSPO I" certification and your name will be posted 

  • on the website.

  • Pre-reqs
  • Attendees will be able to make the most of the class if they:

    • Have studied the Scrum Guide (required).

    • Understand the basics of product management.

    • Understand requirements and requirements decomposition.

    • Currently manage a product, or will be managing a product in the future.

    • Have a clear sense of the challenges and opportunities facing their product.

    • Want to know more about how to leverage agility to deliver more value to their customers.
