The eligibility criteria for PSPO™ certification suggests that basic knowledge of Scrum in a real-world context is helpful, though not mandatory. The one-day Agile and Scrum foundation training serves as a good primer. It is specifically for those, who are interested in handling the business side of a product in Scrum organizations.
However, attending a training workshop is not a mandatory requirement to become PSPO™ certified. You can self-study and attempt the assessment to gain the PSPO™ certification.
Here are the 3 easy steps to become a Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO™):
The role of a PSPO (Professional Scrum Product Owner) encompasses more than writing requirements and managing a product backlog. Scrum is an Agile project management framework that lays out a set of meetings, tools, and roles that work in concert to help teams structure and manage their work efficiently. A product owner is the lead user of the system or a team who is well-attuned to the market, the product, and the expectations from the product. Launching a Product in the marketplace involves planning, managing the budget, understanding all product management aspects that drive value from the product, working with the company stakeholders and understanding the customer needs and requirements. This is where a PSPO adds structure to the whole process, by providing structure and working as the backbone of project management for companies.
Over 90% of the companies today rely on a Professional Scrum Product Owner to add value to an Agile project. Organizations like Siemens, PwC, CISCO, ANZ, FedEx, VMware, and many more are following the Agile way of working which empowers the workforce and helps them decide where to work, how to work and when to work with maximum flexibility and minimum constraints. This has enhanced the value of the PSPO certification as a result of which today there are more than 44000 PSPO holders around the globe, making it among the most in-demand Scrum certifications.
A PSPO course will help individuals and organizations understand how to tune into the requirements of the project as a team and maximize product value by making it cost and quality-efficient. The Product Owner is responsible for delivering a successful project using the right Agile processes and principles.
A Professional Scrum Product Owner helps to streamline delivery of software products and systems, ensuring that the organization improves its bottom line.
