Professional Scrum Product Owner™ - Advanced (PSPO-A) is a practical, activity-based course that aims to help experienced Product Owners and Product Managers develop their ability to establish a vision, validate their assumptions, and ultimately deliver more value to their stakeholders. The course goes beyond the topics explored in the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) course by deepening the participant's understanding of the role through exploration of the many positions of a professional Product Owner.

Students must have at least one year of Product Owner experience and a working knowledge of Scrum in order to participate and benefit from these exercises. Having previously completed the PSPO course is recommended, but not required.

The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Product Owner II (PSPO II) certification exam.

Course learning objectives

Experienced Product Owners will learn different positions that a Product Owner takes in order to meet daily challenges.

Modern complementary practices will be introduced through discussions, case studies and exercises.

Students will leave with a clear understanding of agile product management as they continue their Product Owner journey.

Learn about the different types of stakeholders that Product Owners represent and how to best work with them.

Who should attend this course?

This course is designed for product owners, product managers and business analysts who have a strong focus on product management skills, tools, techniques and knowledge as part of their work on the team Scrum.
