The Certified Scrum Professional - Product Owner, a.k.a. the CSP-PO is pen ultimate level in the Product Owner pathway. It covers advanced techniques for Product Owner (PO) activities for those with deep experience in the area, allowing you to apply empirical product development approaches to mitigate risk, increase predictability, and improve business outcomes.

  • Want a 100% live course with nothing pre-recorded?
  • Want to create great outcomes for your organizations instead of building to specification?

Then elevate your game by earning the CSP®-PO with Grow-Lean.

Pick up where the A-CSPO left off and solidify approaches for validating product assumptions, growing engagement, forecasting effectively, and coordinating across teams.

  • You leave with practical techniques to address your work challenges and to leverage opportunities.
  • You are positioned for journey to guide level certifications including the Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), Certified Team Coach (CTC) and Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC).

Address Myths that Hold You Back

We address common PO misconceptions, including:

  • "As a, I want to, So that" is the only format for PBIs.
    • There are many correct formats for PBIs.
    • Use what works in your context.
  • You meet with customers, gather details, then pass the details to the developers.
    • Make it easy for user and developer to get together to refine PBIs.
    • Spend the time you now have on discovery (what and when) not the details.
  • Going live is risky so only do it rarely.
    • Ultimately, success can only be measured after go-live.
    • Plus, if you go live frequently, the changes are smaller, and easier to fix.

What You Learn...

The agenda for the session is shown.

  • The Role of the Product Owner in its many forms:
    The theory of the role doesn't always match the reality of your authority and constraints. Learn how to make the most of your position based upon the type of business you’re in, the products or services that you helm, the life-cycle in which those products exist, your organization’s maturity and more.
  • Advanced stakeholder and customer engagement:
    Product Owners hear a lot about “saying no,” an appropriate thought given that much of their job boils down to scope management with perspective, but this is much easier said than done. Work through a variety of real-world situations that veer from the ideal and learn how you can work most effectively you're your unique set of stakeholders.
  • Launching new Scrum teams and projects:
    Learn how to rapidly but thoughtfully kick off a new team or new engagement, considering how to properly align roles, create a basis for appropriate collaboration between the team and stakeholders, and communicate a compelling vision along with practical means to measure progress against it.
  • Scaling to larger projects:
    Explore how and when to apply multiple teams against a common goal with a coherent backlog, intelligent dependency management and proper synchronization… without falling into a host of common traps.
  • Designing and communicating product strategy:
    Practice crafting and comparing business models, creating targeted experiments, and prioritizing opportunities by value, time and economic impact.
  • Advanced backlog and release management:
    Delve into a variety of techniques for prioritizing the backlog in tricky situations, creating long-term road-maps without sacrificing adaptability, optimizing release strategies and demonstrating return on investment for agile efforts.

...What You Earn

By taking the session you earn the chance to become a Certified Scrum Professional Product Owner (CSP-PO) as long as already have the A-CSPO Certification and are able to validate at least 24 months in the role of Product Owner, or Product Owner coach, over the last five years.

The CSP-PO will differentiate you, but more importantly the deep learning will allow you to interview with confidence and apply advanced techniques in the work place.
