Certified Product Owner (CSPO) delivers a dynamic course filled with practical exercises and real-world examples. Experienced Scrum practitioners will walk away with ideas for improving their Scrum practices and students brand new to Scrum will gain a solid understanding of how to get started. Similar to the CSM course, the CSPO class also goes deeper on the topics more related to the role of the Product Owner. There is more emphasis on the PO role in Scrum with topics such as using a vision statement to guide the team, creating a product roadmap, and release planning. Learn about the maintenance of the product backlog and practice writing user stories using user roles and personas.
