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.

I found the course very useful and I found it well-structured. It gave me a good insight on how to apply Scrum and also on the related roles such as the Product Owner. The instructor was well-prepared and knowledgeable on the subject. I recommend this course to everyone who is either new to agile or would like to better understand the real role of a Scrum Master.
