Useful Information

Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced

Course Overview

In this Advanced Product Ownership course, students will gain a better understanding of what it means to deliver value and how to express that value inside and outside of their organization.

Through a case study-based series of exercises, combined with instruction, students gain the entrepreneurial product leadership skills and practices critical to growing as a successful Product Owner.

The Product Owner role is multifaceted, requiring them to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum framework. Students explore these techniques and how to pivot among them by exploring several Product Owner “stances” including:

The Customer Representative:

    • Focus on understanding customer problems, pains and opportunities
    • Get into the mindset of the customer, placing yourself in their world, understanding their needs
    • Deliver value by connecting product features to customer outcomes

The Visionary:

    • Champion the future state, possibilities, goals and chances
    • Communicate the product vision, strategy and Product Goal
    • Understand value and pricing models

The Decision Maker:

    • Focus on making better decisions
    • Navigate conflicting customer feedback

The Experimenter:

    • Focus on innovation through experiments, hypotheses, tests, learnings, data and validation of value
    • Understand the Product Owner’s role in a scaled environment

The Collaborator:

    • Seek collaboration with stakeholders and the Scrum Team
    • Work beyond the Scrum Team including contracts, finance, budgeting and governance in an agile way

The Influencer:

    • Lead the stakeholders, customers and Scrum Team, to move in the right direction and to change their minds, when necessary
    • Learn how to create a stakeholder management strategy


Who should attend?

This course is designed for Product Owners, Product Managers, and Business Analysts focusing heavily on Product Management skills, tools, techniques, and knowledge as part of their work on the Scrum Team. The course does not address the Scrum framework (much), and we assume people have a proper understanding of the Scrum framework.

Participants should have at least one year of experience as a Product Owner or Product Manager, while multiple years of experience and having attended the Professional Scrum Product Owner course and passing PSPO is preferred, but not mandatory.

Other people that might benefit from the PSPO-A course include:

  • Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches
  • Company leaders


Learning Experience and Format

The course is delivered either in-person in a location specified in the Location field, over two days. The classroom times run from 9 AM – 5PM UTC+0.

It is delivered using an engaging mix of collaborative exercises, liberating structures, and group discussions – all facilitated by your trainer.

Whilst we do follow a curriculum, how it is delivered from course to course is never quite the same as another. I do this to ensure the experience is adapted to meet your needs and set you up for success!


Assessments and Certifications

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Product Owner II (PSPO II) assessment. The industry-recognized PSPO II certification requires a minimum passing score of 85%. PSPO-A class participants who attempt the PSPO II assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score at least 85% will be granted a second attempt at no additional cost.

You are also entitled to a discount on the PSPO III assessment.
