What is the CSPO course?
The Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) learning is a highly interactive, in-depth approach to covering the values and principles of Agile, and the theory, practices and rules of Scrum. It provides practical guidance for adopting Scrum and continuously improving your organisation.
Incorporating Scrum principles and practices takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Scrum is a framework, not a prescriptive methodology. This course will help you understand Agile, Scrum and more.
Attendees will learn about the key rights and responsibilities of being a Product Owner on a Scrum product delivery. The course will cover how to effectively set a direction for an agile team without destroying the key aspects of performance and self-organisation of the team.
The discipline and feedback culture of Scrum requires support from yourself to be high performing. You will learn how to do this and more in our Certiﬁed Scrum Product Owner Training.
