All CSPO courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSPO course and the corresponding evaluation designates a Certified Scrum Product Owner, which indicates that the CSPO will have been introduced to the basic concepts needed to perform as a Product owner or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
Scrum is a light-weight framework for delivering valuable product to customers by empowering cross-functional, self-organizing Teams. This simple, easy-to-understand framework offers organizations the ability to transform their work environments, restore a focus on the customer and reenergize their employees. Since Scrum is merely a framework where product development activities occur, there exists a great deal of murkiness on how individuals and organizations apply Scrum in a way that is meaningful and valuable for their circumstances.
The learning objectives for this course are:
List the five values of Scrum and the eight essential Scrum principles.
Discuss the key responsibilities and rights of the Product Owner.
Explain the importance of the Product Backlog and how it is used in Scrum.
Practice a new model for thinking about the Product Backlog, organizing the Product Backlog items and identifying non-functional requirements.
Practice each step in constructing a Product Backlog from initiating a compelling vision, identifying user needs, writing Product Backlog items and developing a product roadmap.
Explain how to create personas and how to use them to identify hidden requirements and ways to exceed the customer's expectations.
Describe how to engage the Team members, users, customers and stakeholders in co-creating requirements and features.
Identify the profile of behaviors and attitudes that enable someone to be a powerful Product Owner and the behaviors and attitudes that augment their impact.
Practice applying multiple prioritization techniques to maximize business value.
Rehearse writing user stories and acceptance criteria.
