Professional Scrum Product Owner

A course that helps you understand the fundamentals of Product Ownership

Course Overview

Being a professional Product Owner encompasses more than writing requirements or managing a Product Backlog.
Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of all product management aspects, including but not limited to product ownership, that drives value from their products.

In this course students will develop and solidify their knowledge of the Scrum framework and the accountabilities of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises. Students learn techniques that they can use to help them overcome the challenges that are often encountered on a day-to-day basis. They will do this while learning better ways to work with the organization, stakeholders, customers and their team to provide greater value in the product being delivered.

Years later, Roman discovered that there are other ways of working, involving handoffs, excess documentation, bureaucracy and boredom. These experiences inspired Roman to help guide workplaces and organizations towards being meaningful and purpose driven.

What other people say

Great training. Really enjoyed Cesario’s interactive training methods. He did a great job tailoring the content of the course to the needs of the group. I can recommend this training to anyone who wants to understand SCRUM beyond just passing the assessment.
Jean KuppersProfessional Scrum Master
I had been working as a Scrum Product Owner for quite some time before taking the Product Owner course from Cesario. It was a great experience, as there was a lot of time for questions and to go more in depth into the subject matter. It really helped me to become a better product owner!
