What is a Certified Scrum Product Owner(CSPO)?

Are you curious to know what it would be like to contribute to your team as a Product Owner, but are unsure of what all that entails? Maybe you have been practicing Scrum for a while now and think it might be a good fit or opportunity. In that case, let us dive into the role of the product owner and illustrate their responsibilities and contributions to the team.

By definition, a Scrum Product Owner is responsible for maximizing the value of the product resulting from the work of the Development Team, as defined in the scrum guide. Their mission is to maximize the value of the product and the development team. The way this is executed will vary across different organizations and teams but overall the expectation remains the same.

One of the major responsibilities of the product owner is managing and refining the Product Backlog. They must define and prioritize the features of the product backlog and decide the release dates for content, assuming COMPLETE responsibility for the profitability of the product. They must ensure the product backlog is clear for everyone to read and understand what the team will work on next. It should also be posted somewhere visible where the entire team can review, to maintain transparency.

In conclusion, the product owner must be the leader for the product. They must be an active member of the Scrum Team and be accessible to the development team clarifying all specifications. They should have a compelling product vision that is executable, and arouses passion in the team, the company, and the customers. All while maintaining a Show and Ask mentality versus a Show and Tell.
