Professional Scrum Product Owner™

Course schedule

Course overview

Being a professional Product Owner encompasses more than writing requirements or managing a Product Backlog. Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of all product management aspects, including but not limited to product ownership, that drives value from their products. 

Professional Scrum Product OwnerTM (PSPO) is a 2-day course that focuses on all of these areas to teach students how to maximize the value of products and systems. PSPO is the cutting-edge course for Product Owners, Agile product managers, and anyone responsible for a product’s success in the market. In this course, students will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises.

The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Product Owner I certification exam (PSPO I).

What you will learn

Over the 2 days, students will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises. The breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product will become more clear from an Agile perspective. Metrics are identified to track the creation of value and the successful delivery of the product to the marketplace.

The PSPO course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises.

Who should attend

This course is appropriate for students in any industry where teams are working to solve complex problems. The Professional Scrum Product Owner course is for:

  • Professionals interested in starting a career as a Product Owner
  • Product Owners with some experience in the role who are looking to improve their understanding or fix their misconceptions of Scrum and the Product Owner role

Course Details Questions:

Both our in-person and virtual course formats are dynamic and interactive, steering clear of the typical ‘death by PowerPoint’ experience. The in-person sessions foster spontaneous discussions and hands-on activities, creating an environment of active participation. Meanwhile, our virtual format translates this engaging interaction into the digital realm. Regardless of your choice, the quality, participant feedback, and assessment outcomes remain consistently high across both formats.

Ultimately, it’s about your personal preference: whether you thrive in the direct, face-to-face interaction of in-person training or prefer the flexibility and convenience of virtual learning, you’ll receive the same comprehensive and engaging experience in our course

Our courses generally start at 09:00 and finish at 17:00 UK time each day. However, we recommend checking the specific details of each individual course for any variations in timings.

Our courses are intentionally kept small to guarantee a premium learning experience. In instances where a course exceeds 10 attendees, we ensure the quality is maintained by having a second trainer in our classes

Begin with the essential reading of the Scrum Guide and the Evidence-Base Management Guide. While this is the primary preparation, enhancing your understanding with additional resources can help you get more out of the two-day course, although it’s not essential:

Our Blog: Delve into our blog for practical insights. Key reads include “Agile and Scrum: Unravelling the Misconceptions” and “Escaping the Product Owner’s Trap: A Path to Unleashing True Value”.

Extended Learning: Explore a variety of learning resources at Scrum.org’s Product Owner Learning Path, including blogs, articles, videos, and podcasts. These resources offer a deeper dive into Scrum concepts and practices.

These additional readings and resources are optional but can significantly enhance your understanding and experience during our course.

When you choose us for your Scrum training, you’re in good hands with our team of certified Professional Scrum Trainers (PSTs), accredited by Scrum.org. Our PST trainers have gone through a rigorous certification process, which includes interviews, knowledge validation, training, peer reviews, and more.

By training with us, you’re learning from instructors who not only have theoretical expertise but also real-world experience. They are dedicated to helping you tackle the challenges of applying Scrum in practice. You can explore more about the PST certification journey at Scrum.org

The course provides comprehensive access to expert tuition, including two attempts at the PSPO I Assessment and a 40% discount on the PSPO II. You’ll benefit from Scrum.org courseware, additional resources, and links. The PSPO I certification is achieved through an online, unproctored assessment, which you can complete at your convenience after the course. Additionally, enjoy a loyalty discount with b-agile, offering a 10% reduction on all future course bookings.

Your full attendance is essential for recognition in our course.

We know that sometimes emergencies can’t be helped, so we ask you to keep the course days clear in your schedule as much as possible. Our trainers have the final say if you miss some time, and generally, being away for more than an hour might mean you can’t be accredited. But don’t worry too much – if this happens, we’ve thought of a compassionate alternative. You won’t receive a refund or assessment codes, but we’ll gladly welcome you into a future class at no extra cost. Please remember, we can’t cover any costs that come up due to rescheduling, but we’re here to support your educational journey in every way we can!

Course Content Questions:

The PSPO I certification is achieved by taking an online PSPO I assessment, which is not proctored and can be completed at your convenience following the course.

The PSPO I assessment is comprised of 80 multiple choice questions that must be completed in 60 minutes. The pass mark is 85%. The course fee provides up to 2 attempts at the PSPO I assessment.

This assessment can be taken from any location using an internet-connected computer, offering you the flexibility to schedule it according to your own timeline.

The PSPO course provides participants with a deep understanding of Scrum and strategies to enhance a product’s value by leveraging Scrum. Beneficial for Product Owners, Scrum Masters, and others involved in product development, it focuses on maximizing product value through Scrum’s empirical approach.

The course fosters a holistic product management mindset, creating shared understanding and collaboration with teams. Product Development is emphasised as a strategic and tactical team engagement, involving frequent product validation through inspection and adaptation.
