In this 2-day class participants will gain a better understanding of what it means to deliver value and how to express that value inside and outside of their organization. Through a case study-based series of exercises, combined with instruction, students gain the entrepreneurial product leadership skills and practices critical to growing as a successful Product Owner. 

The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviors by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances: 

  • Customer Representative – focused on understanding customer problems, challenges and potential opportunities 
  • Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster common understanding 
  • Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation 
  • Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers and the Scrum Team to act with common purpose 
  • Collaborator – seeking input, ideas and feedback from others 
  • Decision Maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions 

Who should attend

This course is an interactive, experiential workshop where attendees explore topics through a series of exercises and discussions. Students should have at least one year of Product Owner experience and a practical knowledge of Scrum in order to participate in and benefit from these exercises. 

Prerequisites

Attendees are suggested to have read the EBM Guide.

What will you learn

Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced (PSPO-A) is a 2-day hands-on, activity-based course that focuses on helping experienced Product Owners and Product Managers expand their ability to establish a vision, validate their hypotheses, and ultimately deliver more value to their stakeholders.  

The course goes beyond the topics explored in the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) class by deepening the attendee’s understanding of the role through the exploration of the many stances of a professional Product Owner. Participants should have at least one year of Product Owner experience and a practical knowledge of Scrum in order to participate in and benefit from these exercises. Having previously taken the PSPO class is recommended, but not required. 

Certification

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Product Owner Advanced course receive one password to take the PSPO II assessment. If you attempt the PSPO II assessment within 14 days of the class and do not score at least 85%, you will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.
