The two-day Product Owner Professional - Advanced (PSPO-A) course aims to help experienced practitioners develop their ability to establish a solid vision, validate their assumptions, and ultimately bring more value to their stakeholders.

The course goes beyond the topics explored in the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) class by deepening the attendee's understanding of the role through the exploration of the preferred stances of a professional Product Owner. This course is highly experiential, where attendees explore topics through interactive exercises and discussions.

The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Product Owner II certification exam (PSPO II).

This class can be taken both online as a Live Virtual Class as well as In Person

The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviors by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances:

  • Customer Representative – focused on understanding customer problems, challenges, and potential opportunities
  • Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster a common understanding
  • Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation
  • Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers, and the Scrum Team to act with a common purpose
  • Collaborator – seeking input, ideas, and feedback from others
  • Decision Maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions

After this training:

  • You are provided with a clear path to moving forward in their Product Owner journey through an exploration of the different stances a Product Owner takes.
  • You have learned about the various types of stakeholders that Product Owners represent and how to best work with them.
  • You have gained a better understanding of how to use vision, value, and validation to create a competitive advantage for any product.
  • You are introduced to modern complementary practices through discussions, case studies, and exercises.

The training is structured around the product owner stances. Per stance corresponding topics are covered such as:

  • Who are your customers?
  • Connecting product features to customer outcomes
  • Communicating the product vision and strategy
  • Value and pricing models
  • Innovation and experimentation
  • Stakeholders and stakeholder management
  • Agile governance, budgeting and contracting in relation to Scrum
  • Scaling the Product Owner role
  •  

To maximize your learning experience, we advise you to read the Scrum Guide (at least once) and write down your questions and remarks. You can also take the free online Open Scrum assessment on the Scrum.org website. 

After the training you will have access to the classroom page which will have a lot of material to be able to review and read more in-depth information.

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced course receive a password to take the PSPO II assessment and are entitled to a discount on the PSPO III assessment. The industry-recognized PSPO certifications require a minimum passing score on these rigorous assessments.

There is no expiration date on this assessment code. However, when you take your first attempt within two weeks after the training and do not pass the 85% marker, you will automatically receive a new code to do a second attempt.
