We expect you to have some prior knowledge about Scrum and we expect you to have read the “Scrum Guide” on ScrumGuides.org prior to class. It would also be beneficial for you if you read one of Ken Schwaber’s books.
How To Register
Individuals wishing to attend this virtual, online Scrum certification course should register on this site. (click on “Apply for this class now” at the top of this page).
Certified Scrum Product Owner Course Material
Participants will receive electronic course material before the first day of class. The material is in English and will change from training class to training class. The material will be enhanced by more slides, videos and other media in case the trainers will find this useful during class.
Learn the essentials of working as a Product Owner in this two-day class. This two-day interactive course equips you with all you need to know about being an effective product owner.
At the end of the class, you will understand how you can leverage Scrum to optimize value creation and customer satisfaction. You will understand the product owner role with its authority and responsibility, and its interaction with the other Scrum roles. You will be able to create a product vision, stock and refine the product backlog, order the backlog, and systematically refine requirements. You will also be able to create a realistic release and track the project progress and understand how you can effectively collaborate with the ScrumMaster and Development Team.
The training is completed with several exercises. Be prepared for hands-on, hard work. The training will give you the feeling of Scrum itself.
Using anecdotes and experience, teaching the Scrum, and how to use it to be an effective leader of product development – you will learn to be a Product owner.
How Is the Online Course Delivered?
The course will be delivered online and is designed to replicate the key elements of live classes, but note - this is not just hours of self-study. That wouldn’t be a great learning experience.
Instead, I’ve taken the same materials you’d learn if you came to one of my in-person classes, and adapted them for a virtual experience.
The course is a mixture of:
- Live exercises and discussions
- Small break-out groups
- Short assignments
During these sessions, there will be live discussions and group exercises facilitated via the Zoom video conferencing platform. Zoom is an easy to use online meeting and video conferencing software and you’ll receive full instructions about how to join your online class after you register.
Before the live class, you will receive, in advance, some materials to review and videos to watch for that specific class. You will need to watch those videos before you attend the live class so you are prepared to discuss them.
Only Register If You Can Make the Live Classes
To become certified you must attend the live classes just like you would for an in-person class. Be present and do not work on other things while in class.
If you’re unable to commit to this at this time, register here to find out when future virtual classes may become available.
This Is a Fully Certified Scrum Product Owner Course
We are excited to deliver this course and have done everything to make it the best possible experience. The live online sessions will be mostly exercise and discussion with just enough introduction from us to set up each new exercise. Once you’ve worked your way through the materials and live class sessions, you’ll have all the knowledge you need to be a great Product Owner. Given that there is not a certification exam for this course, participants who engage and participate will become certified Product Owners by the end of the class.
