We offer live, hands on performance training. Each attendee learns by doing, by performing real professional task's.
This CSPO certification training will help you learn how to improve product value by speeding the delivery of product features, lead scrum teams, effectively communicate what you want your product to do, and maximize project ROI. It is the ideal course package for every aspiring professional who wants to pursue a career in project management. If you’re someone who is comfortable with the “business side” of projects, you are probably the right person to aspire to achieve a Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO®) certification. While the Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®) helps the Scrum Team work together to learn and implement Scrum, as a CSPO, you create the product vision, order the Product Backlog, and make sure the best possible job is done to delight the customer.
Benefits of a Certified Scrum Product Owner certification:
- Expand your career opportunities across all industry sectors adopting Agile practices
- Demonstrate your attainment of core Scrum knowledge
- Learn the foundation of Scrum and the scope of the Product Owner role
- Engage with Agile practitioners committed to continuous improvement
There are two certifications that matter when starting out as Product Owner: Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) by Scrum Alliance and Professional Scrum Product Owner I (PSPO I) by Scrum.org. I decided to go for the PSPO I for a couple of reasons:
- CSPO forces you to follow a two-day training. Once you pass the training, the certification is only valid for two years. It is a great cash cow for Scrum Alliance. I do not want to be a part of this, as I do not believe it adds enough value. PSPO I can be studied at your own leisure and you need to pass an online questionnaire. It is valid indefinitely.
- CSPO is notheld in higher esteem than PSPO I. PSPO I is actually more difficult than CSPO. Vacancies do not make a distinction between the two. Why spend more money if it does not offer tangible value in the job market?
- Regardless which one of the two I would take, I would study the same guide. The goal should be the gained knowledge and not the stamp of approval.
