Certified Scrum Product Owner Training (CSPO)

This 2-day Certified Scrum Product Owner course accredited by Scrum Alliance is different to any other. It covers the details needed to fulfil or support the Product Owner role or understanding the role and its responsibilities. It also offers a user-centric design approach to create successful products, in a truly collaborative way.

Course focus:

Have you ever asked yourself the following?

  • ‘How is my role as a product owner different from a traditional product manager or project sponsor?’
  • ‘How can I accurately tell management when they will get their requests?’
  • ‘What are the daily tasks and responsibilities of the Product Owner?’
  • ‘How do I know if our product is meeting our customers’ needs?’
  • ‘What makes a good user story?’
  • ‘How can we build better software at a faster pace?’

Then this course is designed for you! Leaders and managers in value-driven roles, Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches will also benefit. If you want to build foundational knowledge, learn how to collaborate effectively, gain user empathy and continually use design thinking – we recommend this course.

Participants who complete the course will be a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO).

Frequently asked questions

  • Should I consider SAFe certification? Open or Close

    The Scaled Agile Framework is a brilliant and detailed framework referred to when Agile is used in larger organisations. SAFe is a good framework to understand since it adds a few additional roles and ceremonies to KANBAN and SCRUM forming a framework that can scale for large teams and organisations. Should you be looking for answers to scaling an Agile implementation or Agile for larger cross-functional teams, SAFe is a good course to consider.

    The SCRUM framework also has many scaling options for instance by introducing SCRUM or SCRUM ceremonies or looking into due track SCRUM.

  • Does the SCRUM and Product Owner course cover Kanban principles?Open or Close

    The SCRUM course does not cover KANBAN. DVT does, however, combine SCRUM and KANBAN in a 3-day course that covers both. SCRUM and KANBAN can be combined in forming an Agile framework specific to your environment yet utilising the best elements of two brilliant frameworks. Agile Coaching is a vital part in customising an Agile framework to work for your unique environment and unique challenges.

  • Does the course cover Lean?Open or Close

    The core idea of Lean is to maximise customer value while minimising waste. All Agile Frameworks (including SCRUM and KANBAN) are based on the Lean principle with regards to value-driven focus and minimising any waste. In fact Lean is more focused on the mindset and thinking which overlaps brilliantly with regards to any Agile framework as both is based on the same principles and values.
