The product owner is the one who is closest to the business side of a project and serves as a bridge between operational, marketing and technical teams. As the key stakeholder of the project, the product owners possesses a clear vision of what is being built and effectively communicates that vision to the team. If you are a product owner in your organization or participate in scrum or agile delivery methodologies, becoming a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) will increase your effectiveness with stakeholders across the enterprise. As a CSPO, you will:
- Grasp all scrum terminology, practices, and principles that enable you to effectively fulfill your responsibilities to all parties.
- Learn to maintain the product features backlog and ensure that teams are focused on the right priorities.
- Become the consummate customer advocate with a broad perspective of the marketplace, competition and market trends
- Gain access to an robust community of recognized Scrum experts in user groups and dedicated social networks
Unlike other scrum certifications, product owner need only to have a command of scrum basics. It is then required to take a certification course that takes this basic knowledge and puts it into action.
After successfully completing ASPE's Certified Scrum Product Owner Workshop (CSPO), participants will automatically receive CSPO certification.
Becoming a CSPO is an important step on your path to become more agile with delivery methods and with your team. Mastering Scrum techniques requires experience and continuing education and ASPE can properly prepare you to become a Certified Scrum Product Owner.
