See What Our Students Are Saying

I found the class very educational. A little overwhelming, but that is to be expected. I would definitely like to continue my Agile/Scrum education.

Great courses. Lots of info. Have learned actual meaning of some of the terminology, will be able to translate this to better use of my Teams.

As an inexperienced member of a Scrum Team, that is practicing Scrum, I found this course really helpful in providing me the foundation needed to further grow into a Product Ownership (Product Champion) role. I've been able to spot changes that I will be able to recommend to the team.

Overall good class for those who only know the basics of Scrum. Great job explaining key concepts of Scrum and really breaking them down.

Excellent. Never did story mapping at the Product Champion level and it was very cool. Learned about the various PO [Product Owner] roles which helped me understand the various hats as well as skills that I might need to develop to grow.

Less teacher to student than community of peers. Highly discussion based. Fewer demonstrations than CSM [Certified Scrum Master]. More focus on unique issues across multiple places of work than learning principles.

We were able to cover a lot of material in a short period of time. Dan made the course interactive which helped in the learning. I genuinely feel as though I learned how Scrum Mastering should be done and feel like I can explain it.

Agenda

The 2-day Certified Scrum Product Owner class is an intensive interactive session designed to leverage the diverse background of the participants through facilitated discussion, activities and simulation. The following topics will be covered:

Scrum Foundations
  • Values and Principles
  • The Scrum Framework
  • Modern Scrum vs. Original Scrum
  • Roles, Artifacts and Ceremonies
  • Scrum-Appropriate Projects
Product Owner Responsibilities
Stories and the Backlog
Agile Visioning
Planning and Metrics
The Product Owner and the Enterprise

Additional Details

So you want to learn about Agile Project Management. But is training really worth it? Isn’t ‘Product Owner’ just the Scrum term for ‘Product Manager’? What can training provide that reading a few books can’t? Can this training help solve the Product Owner Dilemma? Remember: A Good ScrumMaster isn’t Everything Although the emphasized ScrumMaster role is key to successful Scrum application, the role of Product Owner is no less important, though it may be less talked about. Learn how to partner with your ScrumMaster to make an effective Scrum force. Scrum Product Owner training is especially appropriate for anyone in the corporate structure dealing with rapidly changing demands and decision-making responsibilities.

Optional Reading

Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals

Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals

By Dan Rawsthorne and Doug Shimp

This book takes a deep, exploratory, look into the Scrum framework, and offers advice about how to think about it, and how to use it. Some of this advice is philosophical, some is pragmatic, some is practical, and some of it is controversial.

This book is not an introductory text.

Certified Scrum Product Owner Training Benefits

So you want to learn Scrum. But is training really worth it?
What can training give you that reading a few books can’t?

TIME = MONEY

Transforming your team or organization to a new methodology is a big undertaking. Organized training will give you the kickstart you need and save you valuable time otherwise wasted on costly trial and error.

INCREASED RETENTION

Studies show that when learners “do and say,” they experience an increase of knowledge retention up to 80% over reading alone.

BUILD SKILL, NOT JUST KNOWLEDGE

Books and blogs are good knowledge resources. Skill, however, is acquired by doing. There is simply no replacement for the skill building that occurs with hands-on activities and real-life simulations.

Who Should Attend

Scrum attendees

There is no right or wrong person to attend this training. In fact, the most successful agile adoptions have included training for everyone, right down to Finance and Sales staff. Scrum training is especially appropriate for anyone in the corporate structure dealing with rapidly changing demands. In a traditional organization, these roles might include:

Developers
Testers
Directors
Project Managers
Program Managers
CXOs
Architects
Coders
Designers
Technical Writers
SMEs
Product Managers
Stakeholders
Analysts
QA Staff
Engineers

What Industries

Use Scrum?

Scrum industries

The most popular use of Scrum is for software development in a wide variety of industries, including financial services, insurance, education, information technology, government programs and supply chain management. But Scrum goes beyond software development! We’ve known organizations and individuals who have used Scrum for graphic design, wedding planning, data warehousing, consulting, classroom projects, household management, auto salvage yards and much more. Scrum is appropriate for almost any complex project with rapidly changing or emergent requirements, regardless of the industry.
