The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) course teaches people how to maximize the delivery of value through software 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. The PSPO course helps students develop and solidify this understanding - from early stakeholder management to release planning and delivery.
The PSPO course addresses a significant skill gap in the software development industry that we have seen growing over the last few years. An effective Product Owner is one of the best predictors of product success, but many Product Owners seem to misunderstand the breadth of the role's responsibilities in delivering a successful product. Maximizing Return On Investment (ROI), optimizing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and capitalizing on product Agility are the things a Product Owner is intimately concerned with that the PSPO course focuses on.
The audience of the Professional Scrum Product Owner course includes those accountable for maximizing the value delivered by products and services, including;
Product Managers and Scrum Product Owners responsible for the delivery of a product, from conception to customer usage.
IT Development Managers responsible for a line of business or internal company system.
Strategy managers responsible for the overarching direction of a product or product family.
Scrum Masters can also benefit from this course as their role often includes coaching Product Owners.
