Certified Scrum Product Owner® training
Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO®) professionals have been taught the Scrum terminology, practices and principles that enable them to fulfill the role of Product Owner on a Scrum team. CSPO® professionals are typically the individuals who are closest to the business side of the project. They are charged by the organization to “get the product out” and are expected to do the best possible job of satisfying all the stakeholders. CSPO® professionals maintain the product backlog and ensure that everyone knows the priorities. Upon successful completion of this course, you’ll need to accept the license agreement through the Scrum Alliance® to earn your certification.
Taking the CSPO course is the first step on your path to becoming more Agile. Truly mastering Scrum requires experience and a continuing education.
By earning a Certified Scrum Product Owner® certification, you will:
- Learn the foundation of Scrum and the scope of the Certified Scrum Product Owner® professional’s role from the best minds in Scrum
- Demonstrate to employers and peers your attainment of core Scrum knowledge
- Expand your career opportunities by staying relevant and marketable across all industry sectors adopting Agile practices
- Engage with a community of recognized Scrum experts who are committed to continuous improvement
