With the “Professional Scrum Product Owner” (PSPO) course, you learn the basics of Scrum and the role of the PO in order to maximize your return on investment.
Professional Scrum Product Owner is THE cutting-edge course for effective Product Ownership. It explores the worldwide challenge that many Scrum implementations run into, i.e. how should business people and product managers engage in Scrum and collaborate with Scrum Development Teams?
The Professional Scrum Product Owner class focuses on the core expectation for Product Owners to maximize the value of the work done for a software product, thereby serving customers, users and the organization.

Scrum.org maintains the defined curriculum and materials to assure consistency and quality for students worldwide.
The PSPO course teaches people how to maximize the return on investment (ROI) and optimize the total cost of ownership (TCO) of products and systems. Agile product ownership today requires more than knowledge of how to write a user story or manage a product backlog. Professional Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of everything that drives value from their products. PSPO helps participants develop and solidify this understanding?from early stakeholder management to release planning and delivery.
