Professional Product Owner (PSPO) training

Professional Scrum Product Owner

In this 2-day Professional Scrum Product Owner training you will learn how to get the best out of Scrum as a Product Owner. The training is a unique mix of theory & practice, optimized for the best learning experience.
Unlike many unofficial Scrum trainings, this is one of the official Scrum.org-trainings that helps you prepare for the Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO I) certification.

This training is entirely based on flipcharts, videos, team cases\exercises & interactive discussions. The location & training room is shaped towards optimal collaboration between the participants. The maximum number of participants for this training is 12, to make sure that we have enough room for discussion and sharing thoughts.
Our community of community of Professional Scrum Trainers (PST’s) continuously updates the content of the PSPO training. With over 190 PSTs around the world teaching the materials, that provides a fantastic number of people to provide excellent feedback to improve the content and quality of the courseware. We make sure that you are aligned with the content of the “PSPO I”-assessment by always using the latest training material available.
