Certified Scrum Product Owner® professionals have been taught the Scrum terminology, practices, and principles that enable them to fulfil the role of Product Owner on a Scrum team. CSPOs are typically the individuals who are closest to the "business side" of the project. They are charged by the organization to "get the product out" and are expected to do the best possible job of satisfying all the stakeholders. CSPOs maintain the product backlog and ensure that everyone knows the priorities.
Taking the CSPO course is the first step on your path of becoming more Agile. To truly master Scrum, experience and continuing education are necessary.
As a CSPO, you will be able to fulfil the role of Product Owner on a Scrum team. You will also have access to a 2-year membership with Scrum Alliance. Through this membership you can join local user groups, online social networks, gain access to deep discounts on gatherings, and additional member-only resources. In addition, CSPOs can use a specially designed logo to highlight their credentials.
The first step toward your CSPO is familiarizing yourself with Scrum. We've compiled a list of resources that can help you see how Scrum transforms the world of work.
Then attend an in-person, two day (16 hour) CSPO course taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) or Endorsed Scrum Trainer (EST). You will be eligible for 16 Scrum Education Units (SEUs) upon successful completion of this course.
This course will help you understand how Scrum works by focusing on your role as the Product Owner, or customer, for a Scrum team. Topics that are covered include managing stakeholders, ROI, backlog grooming, creating effective user stories, acceptance criteria for user stories, and defining "Done."
The Two-day Certified Scrum Product Owner Training (CSPO) prepares you to gain your Scrum Product Owner certification.
