The Product Owner is the key member of the Scrum Team and shoulders the responsibility of leading the project strategically, collaborating with customers and team on a daily basis, and managing the business value. Though he doesn't need to be an expert in the process, the Product Owner must have sufficient understanding of the Agile Manifesto and enough knowledge to assist the ScrumMaster if the need arose.

Our two-day Certified Scrum Product Owner Course is delivered by Scrum Alliance Certified Trainers (CSTs) and offers blended-learning combining classroom study, group discussions, and hands-on practice exercises, to give you a keen understanding of Scrum from the point of view of a Product Owner, enabling you to be an effective customer to the Scrum team and maximizing ROI.

    What does it mean to be a CSPO?

    A Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) is someone who has been taught (by a Certified Scrum Trainer) the Scrum terminology, practices, and principles that will enable him or her to fulfill the role of Scrum product owner.

    Do I receive PDU credits for a CSPO course?

    Yes. Please follow PMI''s procedure for Category B: Courses offered by Other Education Provider. According to the PMP handbook: 'Contact hours of project and/or program management education may be earned by attending relevant educational courses offered by organizations not registered with PMI. To calculate the number of PDUs earned, use the following formula: one contact hour of learning relevant to project and/or program management within a structured activity or course equals one PDU. Documentation required upon PMI audit/request: registration form, certificate or letter of attendance, and a brochure or course materials outlining the subject matter covered and the qualifications of the instructor/lecturer.' Most CSTs can tell you how many PDUs their course offers.

    Should I do both Certified ScrumMaster and Certified Scrum Product Owner if I don't know where I will be working?

    Both designations address different concerns for developing Products. Employers are looking for people with a background in agile (scrum). These designations will help identify you as having been trained in Scrum. Experience still counts so time spent doing Scrum is equally valuable.

    In Scrum, which person is the Project Manager? Is it the ScrumMaster or the Scrum Product Owner?

    The short answer is neither. The term Project Manager is not defined in Scrum. The term Project Manager is defined broadly in the market and is used differently by many organizations. If you compare the terms side by side you will find that sometimes it is the PO, sometimes the SM and sometimes it is both. Again, the term is not defined in Scrum but, you can compare them.

    Which should I pursue: Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) or Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO)? Why?

    Both certifications will lead to a full understanding of Scrum. The CSPO is targeted for Product Owners who need skills and techniques for managing features and determining what the right product to build is. The CSM is a deep dive introduction to Scrum. CSM is focused on the scrum framework and its application for building well form teams that are directed by a Product Owner. The CSM is recommended for all Scrum team members, this include Product Owners.

    Would it be better to spend time renewing a PMP credential or becoming a Certified ScrumMaster or Product Owner?

    Becoming a CSM and/or CSPO is recommended. We are seeing increase demand from companies who are looking for people with CSM / CSPO experience.

    I understand Scrum is used widely for software development projects. Can it be used for other fields?

    Scrum has seen an application into every major vertical industry. The number of domains outside software that it has been applied to is increasing rapidly. Scrum is a general purpose framework that is used to set an empirical pattern of behavior at a small team level. Scaling Scrum is thought of as multiple scrum teams working together in an empirical process controlled manner.

    How do I get my certificate and who issues it?

    Students taking classes offering a Scrum certification (Certified ScrumMaster and Certified Product Owner) will receive their certifications from the Scrum Alliance. Shortly after completion of the class, participants will receive an email from the Scrum Alliance with instructions for creating a membership account and taking any required certification exams. Once certified, students will have access to exclusive content and the ability to print a copy of any Scrum certificates they have achieved.

    What time do classes start and how long do they go each day?

    Unless otherwise stated, all of our classes begin at 8:30 and run to 5:00 PM, local time. Classes generally include a break for lunch around noon, as well as a brief break in the morning and afternoon.

    What are the benefits of taking a class to learn about Agile & Scrum as opposed to simply reading a book?

    Books are valuable resources and we strongly encourage potential students to leverage these sources of information. Our training classes are designed to reinforce concepts with in depth simulations and robust discussion. All of our course blend lecture, practice, and reflection. This allows participants to gain a much more profound understanding of the subject matter.

    What do I need to bring to a class?

    Our classes are designed to be a stand-alone experience and do not require participants to bring anything to a class other than an open mind and willingness to learn and perhaps something to take notes.

    Can I buy a seat with a Purchase Order?

    Yes, we will accept purchase orders. Please email us at support@knowledgehut.com to arrange for payment via a purchase order.

    What happens if a class is canceled?

    In the case that a class is canceled by KnowledgeHut, participants are entitled to transfer to another class or receive a full refund at their discretion.

    What does it mean to be a Certified Scrum Professional (CSP)?

    A Certified Scrum Professional has proven experience and expertise in the art of Scrum. CSP is the level of certification that all practitioners of Scrum should strive to attain. Before becoming a CSP, applicants must be CSMs, CSPOs, or CSDs.

    I'm a strong believer of the fact that human beings are born with a trait to inspect and adapt. Human beings collaborate well in small herds. So I believe that any activity (software development, coaching or training) is highly effective when worked with smaller teams, hands on than taking on an enterprise. I had privilege to sit next to customer and develop software to solve their problems 30 minutes into my first job. So I strongly believe in collaborating with customer's to build simple and valuable products rather than building sophisticated fancy products.

    I have over 15 years of experience in developing software in various roles such as a Programmer, Release Engineer, Analyst, Project Manager, Scrum Master, Product Owner and Agile Coach but every role focused on the value being created for the end user.

    I also believe that the learning never ends so I co-learn by facilitating the following workshops

    • Agile Foundations
    • Software Development using Scrum
    • Advanced Skills for Scrum Master
    • Agile Planning and Estimation
    • Agile Project Management using JIRA+GreenHopper
    • Collaboration Tools for Agile [GreenHopper, JIRA, Jenkins, Crcible, FishEye etc]
    • Software Configuration Management for Agile Teams
