The Professional Scrum Product Owner Advanced (PSPO-A) training is aimed at Product Owners who want to fortify their mandate. Going from ‘it feels my Product Backlog is managed by my stakeholders’ to ‘my stakeholders help me maximize the value of the product’. From ‘being owner of the changes to the product’ to ‘owning all aspects that influence the success of the product’.
Sounds magical. And no, this is growth that is not achieved within the 2-day training. But what will you achieve?
The training is build around Product Owner stances. These are different ways to operate that you can apply as a Product Owner, so that you will be more effective in your role. Because you can improve your influence with regards to different situations that are part of your role, you will achieve better results. For instance collaboration with stakeholders in and outside the Sprint Review. Also the collaboration with the Scrum Team and possible other Product Owners within your domain.
For every ‘stance’ we will go through a number of tools and techniques, we will practice with them in a case that goes throughout the course, so you can try these tools out for yourself. You’ll do this in a team of participants (other Product Owners), that allows you to be challenged by them and the trainers.
