The CSPO Training Agenda
The Certified Scrum Product Owner Training is based on the learning objectives of the Scrum Alliance. Each training therefore includes five specific blocks for Product Owners.
These learning objectives are:
- core competencies of the Product Owner
- purpose and strategy of Product Ownership
- understanding customers and users
- validation of product assumptions
- working with the product backlog
At the same time, the live training is based on the premise that each implementation of Scrum is different and each company, each participant has a different level of knowledge. Therefore, in each training, reference is made to the context of the participants. Are there specific challenges or anti-patterns in the company? How does the introduction or the work with Scrum proceed in the respective work environment? All these topics can be addressed in the training itself and solutions can be worked out.
The goal of the certified Product Owner training is a holistic engagement with the product-specific tasks and challenges that may arise over time.
The length of the training (typically two or three days) determines the scope of the additional topics covered. In addition to the five learning objectives, each trainer is free to include other product-specific topics in the training. During the three days, the participants also have the opportunity to introduce their own topics to a greater extent and to solve them in the group.
The Online Course Bundle for CSPOs
Lifelong learning is not just a phrase for us, but something we live by. That's why you receive the accompanying online course as a bundle with every Product Owner live training. This allows you to deepen your knowledge after the training and to refer to the course again and again throughout your life if you need information or support.
All online courses have been created and recorded by certified Scrum trainers. By completing the quiz at the end of the online course, you can also earn the Business Agility Academy (BAA) certification in addition to the Certified Scrum Product Owner badge from the Scrum Alliance.
The live Training Options
First and foremost, you can get the learning experience you want with us. Whether remotely from home, in your city, or at an on-site workshop.
This way you can choose the training that best suits your working conditions and preferences. If you want to directly try out virtual tools and techniques that will help you in your role as a product owner to get the best out of your product even with a distributed team, then choose a remote training. If you'd rather take your training out of your day-to-day work and in a separate location, choose one of our live, on-site trainings. No matter what you decide, you will always receive the online course as a bundle with the training, so that you can review what you have learned at your leisure.
Frequently asked questions:
What are the learning objectives of the Product Owner training?
The Certified Scrum Product Owner is the first certification for product owners. Here you will learn the basics as well as methods and frameworks for Product Owners and can exchange ideas with like-minded people.
The learning objectives of the Scrum Alliance can be divided into five areas, all of which are covered in the seminar:
- Core Competencies for Product Owners
- Purpose of the role and associated strategy
- Understanding customers and users
- Making and validating product assumptions
- Working with the product backlog
Do I need any prior experience for the Product Owner training?
No, you do not need any prior experience to enroll. The backgrounds and experiences of all participants are diverse and range from absolute Scrum newbies to long-time product owners.
In the training, the exchange of experiences between the participants from different industries and companies is an essential element of the training. This is also the reason why most trainers accept a maximum of four participants from one company in one course. The training content builds on each other and during the training you will learn how a sprint is structured and which steps in a successful product development take place and when. During the training, the Scrum simulation shows you, among other things, how to create the right target groups for your product, formulate the vision and communicate with all stakeholders.
Why are the Product Owner trainings priced differently?
The Agile Academy is a platform of independent trainers. Each company offers you a training specially put together by the trainer according to the guiding principles of the Scrum Alliance. Thus, the training of the providers differ, for example, in the length, the agenda and the set focus or case studies.
In order for the training or you to be certified by the Scrum Alliance as a Certified Scrum Product Owner, at least 14 hours of live training are required. Many trainers extend the curriculum with additional content and thus enable a deeper familiarization with the topic.
It is best to compare the contents on the respective training pages of the trainers and then decide on the date that suits you best.
What is included in the CSPO certification?
Participants who successfully complete the course become a Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO®), which entitles them to a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance®. This active membership includes, among other things:
- A profile on the Scrum Alliance website
- A digital CSPO badge to embed on e.g. LinkedIn
- The chance to participate in various Scrum Alliance meetings
- Free benefits and discounts for events in the login area
