Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO)

It's ultimately up to the product owner to maximize the value of the work done to serve customers, users, and the organization. How well you meet the challenges, responsibilities and tasks of this crucial role determines failure or success. This two-day Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) training (taught in Dutch or English) covers a product owner's role and accountability within an organization and the Scrum team. It also qualifies you to take the PSPO I (level 1) assessment exam. Explore the challenges Scrum implementations encounter worldwide and gain the skills and knowledge you need to excel in product ownership. Working in teams, you'll learn and apply Scrum principles through assignments, discussions, and hands-on exercises and return to work thinking in Scrum.
