Students should have at least one year of Product Owner experience and practical knowledge of Scrum in order to participate in and benefit from these exercises.  Having previously taken the PSPO class is recommended, but not required.

What You Will Learn

The Product Owner’s role is multifaceted, requiring the practitioner to engage in behaviors and adopt mindsets beyond the core of Agility and the Scrum Framework. This course surfaces these behaviors by challenging the student to adopt several different Product Owner stances:

Customer Representative – focused on understanding customer problems, challenges, and potential opportunities

Visionary – communicating the vision, future state and possibilities in ways that foster a common understanding

Experimenter – focusing on innovation, hypothesis testing and validating potential value to spark product innovation

Influencer – communicating with and influencing stakeholders, customers, and the Scrum Team to act with a common purpose

Collaborator – seeking input, ideas, and feedback from others

Decision Maker – focusing on creating maximum impact by making clear choices and decisions

Over the 2 days, students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Product Owner and through a series of exercises combined with instruction, students gain a better understanding of what it means to deliver value and how to express that value inside and outside of the organization.

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!
