Professional Scrum Product Owner - Advanced (PSPOII) with Magdalena Firlit
The virtual PSPO-Advanced course is a mixture of using Zoom (with breakout rooms) and Mural workspace. Your experience can be similar to F2F class due to advanced tools and experienced trainer willingly sharing her know-how and practice.
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 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 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.
The price includes:
- Professional Scrum.org training materials
- The class will be led by an experienced Professional Scrum Trainer (learn more here)
- A voucher for the PSPO II assessment (2 attempts)
