Consider Our Certified Scrum Educational Programs

Are you looking for practical, hands-on Scrum Training? Are you or your team building a product with a new process can be a daunting prospect. Being asked to serve as the team’s Product Owner can be downright intimidating. You’ve got an idea of what Scrum is and have read a few articles or books on the topic, but you really don’t know how to start putting that theory into action. That’s where the Certified Scrum educational program comes in. The course gives you just enough information to understand how Scrum works, but focuses mainly on functioning as the product owner or customer for a Scrum team. You will learn about activities such as managing stakeholders, ROI, backlog grooming, creating effective stories, acceptance criteria for stories, defining done, and so on.

Scrum is a proven lean and agile approach to delivering results, a simple “inspect and adapt” framework used to organize work for maximum efficiency and effectiveness using three roles, three ceremonies, and three artifacts wherein stories express requirements and tasks express work.

While the Product Owner role is conceptually simple and involves a few guidelines, the role emphasizes a particular mindset. Many product owners enact the role, but don’t readily internalize the mindset, and thus don’t experience the benefits of the role.

This workshop not only provides participants with the skills for creating compelling visions, actionable roadmaps, and useful requirements using agile techniques, but it also gives participants practical hands-on experience applying these techniques throughout the workshop. Participants will be introduced to agility and create a vision, roadmap, and work with user roles, user stories, and acceptance tests.

This course is intended for software development teams and professionals. Scrum can be used on other types of projects. Consult with your Effective Agile Development education for information about customizing this course for your team and organization.

To be effective, Scrum Product Owners need to have a firm grasp on the value drivers for their product, and a keen sense of how to use agile practices and Scrum to maximize that value. The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) assessments allow people to validate their understanding of Scrum and product ownership, and how they would respond to real situations that would challenge them.

Whether you are a Product Owner, Portfolio Manager, Program Manager, Product Manager or Business Analyst or just responsible for defining product vision or requirements our course is for you.

Your new education can give you a leg up on your competition either in a freelance or on as a gem on your resume.
