The Scrum.org Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) training course teaches people how to maximise the delivery of value through software products and systems.

These days, Agile Product Ownership requires much more than just being able to write a User Story or manage a Product Backlog.

Professional Product Owners need a strong understanding of everything that drives value from their products. The PSPO course helps you to develop your agile approach right through from the earliest Stakeholder interactions to Release Planning and delivery.

Meet your instructor

Simon Reindl heads up our Scrum squad, and is responsible for having helped many large organisations gain traction and maintain velocity in large-scale Scrum implementations.

In addition to 10+ years as an Agile, Scrum & Kanban coach, Simon has donned the Scrum Developer, Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner hats for a wide variety of successful Agile projects.

He has a great wealth of experience working with people from all levels in order to maximise value and quality in their software product delivery.

He's a thoroughly nice chap too!

Scrum Product Owner Certification

The Professional Scrum Product Owner course has two associated assessments and certification: Professional Scrum Product Owner level I (PSPO I) and Professional Scrum Product Owner level II (PSPO II).

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Product Owner course receive a password to take the PSPO I assessment and are entitled to a discount on the PSPO II assessment.

These industry-recognized certifications require a minimum passing score on the associated rigorous assessment.

The curriculum of the PSPO training course is maintained and regularly enhanced by Scrum.org through contributions from its network of Professional Scrum Trainers. Only the most qualified instructors are chosen to become Professional Scrum Trainers. Each instructor brings his or her individual experiences and areas of expertise to bear, but all students learn the same core course content. This improves their ability to pass the Professional Scrum Product Owner certification assessments and apply Scrum in the real world.

By the end of this course, you will have learnt about:

  • Value-Driven Development
  • Product Management
  • Managing Requirements
  • Lean Planning

Course Syllabus

Value-Driven Development

The primary job of a Product Owner is to maximize the value created by the product for which he or she is responsible. This section covers value drivers, and strategies for measuring them.

Product Management

Agile product management is different than traditional approaches. This section explores those differences, as well as how the Product Owner works in an Agile environment to deliver a product.

Managing Requirements

The Product Backlog is the fuel that feeds the development team, and managing it is one of the primary roles of the Scrum Product Owner. Here you will learn about User Stories, ordering and organization strategies, and Product Backlog grooming.

Planning Releases

What does a good release look like? Why are releases done? What impact can a bad release have on you and your customer? This section explores release strategies and how to optimize the delivery of value with them.

Lean Planning

A release is the first step to realizing value. What better way to learn how to plan a release than to do it? Here students cover the basics of identifying a release goal and requirements, backlog ordering, estimation, adjustment, and baseline planning.

Managing Products

Understanding Total Cost of Ownership is fundamental to successfully managing a product. How do you balance between optimizing the value of a release and maximizing the value of the product or system as an asset for the organization? How does that fit into your product roadmap, and why is your Development Team's "Definition of Done" so fundamental to everything that you do?
