Professional Product Owner – Advanced (PSPO-A) Training Course 

This 2-day Professional Product Owner – Advanced (PSPO-A) course focuses on helping experienced practitioners expand their ability to establish a solid vision, validate their hypotheses, and ultimately deliver more value to their stakeholders. The PSPO-A course is intended for Product Owners who are looking to grow their knowledge and abilities.

The course goes beyond the topics explored in the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) class by deepening the attendee’s understanding of the role through the exploration of the many stances of a professional Product Owner. This course is an interactive, experiential workshop where attendees explore topics through a series of exercises and discussions. Students should have at least one year of Product Owner experience and a practical knowledge of Scrum in order to participate in and benefit from these exercises.  Having previously taken the PSPO class is recommended, but not required.

The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Product Owner II certification exam (PSPO II).

 

What You’ll Learn

The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviors by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances:

Customer Representative – focused on understanding customer problems, challenges and potential opportunities

Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster common understanding

Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation

Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers and the Scrum Team to act with common purpose

Collaborator – seeking input, ideas and feedback from others

Decision Maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions

Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Product Owner and through a series of exercises combined with instruction, students gain a better understanding of what it means to deliver value and how to express that value inside and outside of the organization.

 

Course Objectives

  • Practicing Product Owners will learn different stances a Product Owner takes in order to navigate everyday challenges.
  • Attendees leave knowing how to best identify and serve various groups of stakeholders and what competencies are expected. In order to aid in this journey, modern complementary practices will be introduced through discussions, case studies, and exercises.
  • Students will leave with a clear path to moving forward in their Product Owner journey.
  • Gain a better understanding of how to use vision, value, and validation to create a competitive advantage for any product.
  • Learn about the various types of stakeholders that Product Owners represent and how to best work with them.
