Professional Scrum Product Owner Training: Approach
To be a Scrum product owner requires more than knowledge of how to write a user story or manage a product backlog. A Scrum product owner needs to have a concrete understanding of everything that drives value from their products.
The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) Training course helps people to develop this understanding – from early stakeholder management to release planning and delivery.
This Scrum product owner training course addresses a significant gap in the skills software development industry that has grown over the last few years. An effective Scrum product owner is one of the best predictors of product success, but many Scrum product owners seem to misunderstand the breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product.
Professional Scrum Product Owner Training: Content
The PSPO course consists of modules that build on each other. Modules are exercise-driven and their success depends on effective group participation and interaction. Delegates will be able to immediately apply the techniques discussed in this course when they return to work.
Value Driven Development
The primary job of a Scrum product owner is to maximise the value created by their product. This section covers value drivers and strategies for measuring them.
Agile product management is different to traditional approaches. This section explores those differences, as well as how the Scrum product owner works in an Agile environment to deliver a product.
The product backlog feeds the development team and managing it is one of the primary roles of the Scrum product owner. Here delegates learn about user stories, ordering and organisation strategies and product backlog refinement.
This section helps Scrum product owners to work out their product release strategies, ensuring they take a value-driven and risk-mitigation approach to the order in which product is released to market.
A release is the first step to realising value. What better way to learn how to plan a release than to do it? Delegates cover the basics of identifying a release goal and requirements, backlog ordering, estimation, adjustment, and baseline planning.
Understanding the total cost of ownership is fundamental to successfully managing a product. How do you balance between optimising the value of a release and maximising the value of the product or system as an asset for the organisation? How does that fit into your product roadmap, and why is the development team’s definition of done so fundamental.
Professional Scrum Product Owner Training: Outcomes
Becoming a certified product owner requires more than attendance on the training course. Scrum.org product owner certification requires a minimum score on a rigorous online assessment. On completion of the course delegates are provided with a password for them to take the PSPO 1 assessment. If the minimum score is achieved on the PSPO 1 assessment certified Scrum product owners will be posted on the Scrum.org website and use their product owner certificate to demonstrate completion of this effective Scrum product owner training course.
