The Ultimate Agile Product Ownership program – Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) and Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO)

Cultivate vital skills in agile product ownership through Scrum practices via the CSPO program, and elevate agile product ownership through advanced product discovery, strategy and roadmap, product prioritisation, stakeholder management and more via the Advanced CSPO program.

The Ultimate Agile Product Ownership program contains two modules both ending with the unique separate certification.

Product owners have a unique and demanding role on agile teams.

A product owner decides what the team will create next to deliver more value to the customer. In The Ultimate Agile Product Ownership program (CSPO® + A-CSPO® ) class, you’ll learn the framework, principles, and values that make scrum work, plus key skills and tools you need to be effective.

You will discover how to juggle multiple stakeholders’ needs, get hands-on practice creating a product vision, and learn new ways to get to know your customers so that you can choose the right next piece of value to bring to market for them.
