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.
Overall good class for those who only know the basics of Scrum. Great job explaining key concepts of Scrum and really breaking them down.
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.
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.
I definitely feel more comfortable in regards to the process of Scrum. Dan is very much a Subject Matter Expert and it shows. I enjoyed the way Dan was able to break things down into real world examples.
At mid day on Day 1, I felt that we had spent too much time on fundamentals of Scrum. For an A-CSM course, I expected to jump straight into more advanced topics. I enjoyed Day 2 more for that reason. I also realized that some so-called 'basic' topics are more nuanced than I thought.
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:
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.

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