Take the worlds first, and most respected agile product management certification course, from a Scrum Alliance approved company and an authorized Certified Scrum Trainer (CST)
Take the worlds first, and most respected agile product management certification course, from an approved organization
The Scrum Alliance Certified Product Owner® Certification was the first certification in the agile community to focus on product management. Product Owners apply an effectiveness paradigm, ensuring that we deliver those items that are most likely to increase company ROI, add value for the customer, and maximize learning. The continual learning from each release is used to adjust plans for future releases.
During this session you will hone your skills by breaking large chunks of work into smaller slices, prioritizing them, and then describing them to the extent necessary for a development team to build. You will focus on the strategy of what to build, and in what sequence, putting you in a position to lead both the strategy and technical execution aspects of product ownership. You will learn how to do all of this in a deep collaboration (no you don't talk to users and write stuff up for others to build, at least not anymore) that spans the organization, including business partners, end users, quality assurance (QA), developers, business analysts (BA) and even end users.
After successful completion of the course, and acceptance of the license agreement, you will be registered as a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Product Owner®. More importantly, you will be in a better position to help your organization apply agile methods to drive effectiveness. In addition to the Product Owners, anyone involved in product development, including business users, business analysts, testers, coders, etc., often take, and benefit, this session.

David's vast experience alone was worth the cost of the class. Being able to learn from David as well as all the other attendees proved invaluable. The session went flawlessly, and I loved being remote as well.
The class had a TON of real world examples and really puts a lot of your current mindset into perspective. It gave me a handful off new tools and ideas I could apply to my job the very next day, in fact I actually did apply a few. David was really willing to go over something that I either had questions on or I was confused about. I could write a 5 paragraph essay about the parts I enjoyed but that is probably overkill. It was overall a really solid experience.
The balance of theory and mechanics of Scrum -- Much more than just an explanation of Scrum also how it applies to real-world environments.
David was incredibly passionate about the material he was teaching. Every time I attend a training somewhere, a part of me is always worried that the course and/or trainer will be rigid, leading to boredom, less retention, and not an overall great experience. With David, he took the time to show why what he was teaching was important, and always kept the dialogue light-hearted and entertaining. He's a great asset to Grow-Lean!
The training was great. David is a great instructor; at no point did I feel like I was in training, but rather at a mentoring session, sharing stories and experiences. He was able to tie back all of the agile principles and scrum framework to past experiences and relate to our current situations, and in a way that made everything click. I registered for an in-person class, but with Covid-19, it was moved to virtual. I was hesitant... I dreaded sitting in front of my computer with the possibility of distractions, but that was not the case. David made it very interesting and kept everyone engaged.
I like the style of David and Aleksander's teaching. They really value input of the team throughout the training which results in more engagement of each student. I do really enjoy the Breakout Sessions as well :)
Learning theory is important; however, hearing the framework applied in real-life applications is invaluable.
Tutor's expertise on the subject matter, real-world examples, small work groups, and lots of breaks in between to keep the focus. Allowing participants to share their real work experiences, approaches across varied industries was interesting and useful. This training provides complete knowledge and ideas to become a good Scrum Master and prepares sufficiently for the test. I thoroughly enjoyed the participation and passed the test within three days after the training! Thank you Grow-Lean!
A-CSM training focuses more on the practical application of the framework than the overview (CSM). Performing mini "case-studies" as we go through the material is extremely helpful in learning how to apply and see real world examples of Scrum implementation. The Powerful Questions and Conflict sections are something we can all benefit from learning.
David was very knowledgeable and answered any question the class had, without hesitation. The class was very interactive and fun, and because of that, I was able to easily learn and retain the information he provided. I will be continuing my education in the near future, hopefully with him as my instructor.
This is my second training with David Bulkin, David is a very active, energetic and a great trainer. He has in depth knowledge but has a down to earth personality when comes to his class. He teaches the subject extensively but in a interesting manner. I am very glad to have connected with him who's training made a big change in my way of thinking and career. Hope to get associated with David in near future. Would like to comment about Online training session - Though I read the reviews by other students about the online training, was still skeptical when I was choosing mine. But now after attending Grow Lean's ACSM training, I am convinced and have full confidence that It was really a best choice i made to attend Online session.
[From LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/elizabethanneberry/] David was a great instructor for the Certified ScrumMaster course via Grow-Lean. I really enjoyed the 2 day virtual CSM course because we had real life examples of the material. We were taught how to apply scrum which is something that stood out in this course versus other trainings I’ve taken. There were many value adds beyond the learning objectives that help me feel more confident in using the framework to better my department. I like that David and Alex were open to questions and gave advice on using in scrum in non-tech environments. I also enjoyed the virtual setting because everyone seemed more open. It allows for more flexibility with break times and is less daunting to ask questions if you are not experienced. I’m used to working from home and found the weekend course to be convenient so I wouldn’t have to take time off from work as I’m in a non-exempt role. This was the perfect course for me to gain more understanding and I highly recommend!
[From LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/pagelane/] David is an excellent trainer. I attended his online CSM training course and was able to pass the exam on the first attempt with a 92%. David is knowledgeable and engaging and made 8 hour days fly by. I was impressed by how he was able to get so much participant interaction from an online course. David presented the content in a way that made it easy to understand and retain. I signed up to take the Advanced CSM training. Great course!
[From LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6657718752165019648/] Huge thank you to David Bulkin for leading an informative, fun and challenging Certified ScrumMaster course! You kept us engaged and promoted interaction, participation, collaboration and communication. It was a privilege to take the virtual class and was a blessing to have such an amazing group of classmates. I would recommend anyone to take a course with him, virtual or in person.
I liked the overall format and the presentation pace. Hands on learning experience. Multiple ways to learn things.

Come to our session to start or checkpoint your agile product development journey
Go beyond the mechanics of collecting requirements and learn how to empirically discover what to build
The Certified Product Owner® Certification focuses on the effectiveness paradigm.
A good Product Owner (PO) ensures that we deliver what was asked for, a great Product Owner leads a discovery
process to deliver what is actually valuable
(what is asked for and what is valuable are often not the same).
The PO ensures that items that are most likely to increase company ROI, add value for the customer, and maximize learning are built, then released. The development and release processes generate learnings that guide future releases. By continual learning you can ensure long term success even in the face of short term failures.
After the session you will be registered with the Scrum Alliance as a Certified Product Owner®. More importantly, you will have the conceptual basis on how to determine:
You will apply the Scrum framework to product development and practice a dual-track readiness maturation process to prepare your team for release planning and sprint planning events gaining a practical perspective on applying the roles, artifacts and ceremonies of Scrum via hands on exercises, discussion and simulation.
You will learn how a variety of other frameworks strengthens Scrum and allows you to maximize value delivery.
Exercises, discussions, simulations, games, yes we really mean games, case studies, examples and fun, yes even jokes, are interwoven throughout the course to illustrate the principles being taught in an immersive, engaging manner so that you learn, while enjoying yourself.
Prepare in advance to maximize course value
