The Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training class is a two-day course which will provide an understanding of how Scrum transforms initial concepts and goals into a product backlog and user stories which are ultimately developed into project deliverables. The class delves into creating requirements in an Agile environment, effective prioritization, long term and short term planning, and providing vision. These concepts are presented in a highly interactive and collaborative format with elements of lecture, classroom discussion, exercises, games, and video interwoven throughout the class.
Completion of this course allows each student to claim 14 Project Management Institute (PMI) Professional Development Units (PDUs) / Contact Hours which can be applied to Project Management Professional (PMP) and PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) certifications.
