The trainer was confident of what he was teaching and delivered an excellent training.

Attended Certified Scrum Product Owner®(CSPO) Certification workshop in February 2019

Marcos passion for Agile Scrum really comes out when he is teaching on the subject. His expert level of training and presentation really shows when he is providing the training for Certified Scrum Product Owner. Our training team was very diverse and Marco was able to maintain a strong focus in the group by combining theory with interactive practical exercises. I highly recommend Marco for anything Agile Scrum related and I'm sure to be opting for another course of his soon!

Attended Certified Scrum Product Owner®(CSPO) Certification workshop in March 2019

I had done the CSPO course on 18th & 19th Sept and the trainer was Steve Spearman. It was a good informative experience that started with Agile concepts and then went into Product Owner responsibilities. Steve brings with him decades of IT experience and of implementing Agile in top IT companies as well as lot of Agile course training experience. He was patient enough to answer all of the queries and gave good insights on how a Product Owner should manage various tasks and situations.

CSPO CERTIFICATION, TRAINING, EXAM AND OTHER BASIC DETAILS

Basic

In Agile terms, a Product is something that you build as per your client’s requirements to achieve a certain goal.
 

The Product Owner is an individual on the Scrum team, who represents the user community or business, and is responsible for working with the user group to find the features that will be included in the product release. They are the leaders, managing the team and guiding the product’s progress toward success. The role of the Product Owner is critical to all types of product development, specifically in the Agile methodology.
 

The Scrum Product Owner responsibilities list includes the following:

  • Defining the product features
  • Prioritizing the product features
  • Adjusting the features and priority after each sprint as required
  • Rejecting or accepting work results
  • Keeping customers updated about status and getting their feedback
     

As a Certified Product Owner, you will be given the responsibility of heading an Agile project, liaising with the Scrum Master to achieve objectives and ensuring satisfied customers. The CSPO course will enable you to improve the effectiveness of Scrum artifacts and give you the knowledge necessary to increase the business agility in your organization.

The Product Owner and the Scrum Master are two different roles in the Scrum (Agile) development model. However, both have the same objective of adding value to project management. While the Scrum Master focuses completely on the team and its operations, the Product Owner studies the project from a customer’s perspective. The Product Owners are responsible for managing the product backlog and securing its visibility all the time. On the other hand, the Scrum Master is responsible to motivate the team and help remove any impediments in order to facilitate the timely completion of the project.

  • Business Analyst
  • Project Manager
  • Product Manager
  • Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
