Here you will learn how to connect your company's business strategy with the execution of the product using Scrum and thus develop a product that is in line between customer value and business strategy.

3. The Role of the Product Owner As an Agile Product Manager

Learn how the Product Owner acts as an agile product manager and how you can implement this role in your own work environment to create value for your customers and the company with your product.

4. Introduction to Scrum Principles and Empiricism

A deeper understanding of Scrum principles and empiricism are essential to be able to act effectively as a Product Owner. In this part of the training we will focus on these aspects.

Frequently Asked Questions about the PSPO

Yes, to obtain the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) certification, you need to take an examination. This includes multiple-choice questions and tests your knowledge and understanding of Scrum principles and the role of the Product Owner within a Scrum team. Upon successfully passing the examination, you receive a certificate from Scrum.org.

The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO I) is a certification from Scrum.org that specifically focuses on the role of the Product Owner within a Scrum team. This certification validates the knowledge and understanding of the principles and practices associated with the role of the Product Owner in Scrum.

The Product Owner plays a pivotal role in the Scrum framework and is responsible for maximizing the potential of the product created by the development team. This is achieved through effective prioritization and grooming of the product backlog, engaging stakeholders, and understanding customer needs and business values.

The PSPO I course teaches participants how to effectively fulfill this role. They learn how to translate business strategies into product deliveries, effectively engage stakeholders and development teams, and measure and track the value of a product through the use of metrics. At the end of the course, participants are well equipped to effectively carry out the role of the Product Owner in their organization.

Both the PSPO (Professional Scrum Product Owner) and the CSPO (Certified Scrum Product Owner) are recognized certifications for Product Owners within the Scrum framework, but they are offered by different organizations and there are some differences in terms of course content and the certification process.

The PSPO course is offered by Scrum.org and focuses more on the theoretical aspects of Scrum and the role of the Product Owner. To obtain the PSPO certification, participants must pass an online exam.

The CSPO course, on the other hand, is offered by the Scrum Alliance and places greater emphasis on practical applications of Scrum in the workplace. To obtain the CSPO certification, participants must complete a course led by a certified Scrum trainer and there is no final exam.

Both certifications are valuable and recognized in the industry, so the choice between the two often depends on the individual's personal preferences and career goals.
