This intermediate-level training is recommended for all profiles who wish to successfully understand how to function effectively as the product owner, or customer, for a Scrum team. You will learn about activities such as managing stakeholders, ROI, backlog grooming, creating effective stories, acceptance criteria for stories, defining done, and so on.
CSPO training provides an applied understanding of the Scrum framework and helps participants begin to develop the tools, insights, and skills required to apply Scrum on their projects and across their organizations.
The CSPO is for managers, analysts, product managers, product owners, and anyone interested in working on or with a Scrum team. You will leave with solid knowledge of how and why Scrum works. Through practical, hands-on exercises and small-group discussion, you will be prepared to plan your first (or next) sprint immediately after this class. ScrumMasters can benefit from this course because they must coach Product Owners in these skills.
