About The CSPO Certification Course

Our Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) certification training is an intensive two day workshop on one of the most critical roles defined by the world’s most popular Agile framework: Scrum.

This certification classroom training is organised and run using Scrum as a management framework. This allows for feedback and flexibility as well as experiencing Scrum in action throughout the course.

The Product Owner role is critical to maximising Return on Investment from agile product development / projects and is one of the most challenging yet rewarding of the agile roles. As the voice of the customer to the delivery team, a Product Owner needs to be able to work effectively not only with end users and other stakeholders but with the scrum team on a daily basis.

What is CSPO Certification?

This Certified Scrum Product Owner training course is all-inclusive of a globally recognised certification with the Scrum Alliance for participants who fulfil the expectations of the trainer during the course. Whilst some pre-reading is required, there is no exam to complete after the training course.

This course may qualify Project Management Professionals (PMPs) for 14 PDUs as approved by the Project Management Institute (PMI).


Who Should Attend The Course?

This course is particularly suitable for those who want to get CSPO certified to shape the product/solution from a business perspective. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Product Owners,
  • Product Managers,
  • Business Owners, and
  • Business Analysts.

This course is also highly relevant to those involved in coaching a Product Owner to be effective in their role. This includes:

  • ScrumMasters,
  • Iteration Managers, and
  • Project Managers.

We expect that participants whose experience is predominately with business operations may have limited familiarity with project management and product design issues. Conversely, participants coming from a project management or technical background may have may have less familiarity with how to ascertain value and make business decisions. For these reasons, this course covers both the Product Management (determining the right product) and the Project Management (successful execution) components of the Product Owner’s role.
