Join me, Geoff Watts, on my fun and interactive two-day Certified Scrum Product Owner Training course where I will show you how to leverage Scrum to optimise value creation and customer satisfaction. My Certified Scrum Product Owner ® class is the ultimate guide to becoming an effective Product Owner


The course

In this CSPO course, you will learn about the Scrum framework and the Product Owner role. We’ll explore the authority and responsibilities attached to the role, as well as its interaction with other Scrum roles. You will learn some top techniques to make your real-world role of Product Owner more effective; helping you and your team deliver the right product in the right way.

What you will learn

  • The values and principles of agile development.
  • The Scrum framework, meetings, artefacts, roles and responsibilities.
  • How to successfully set the direction for an agile delivery.
  • How to stock and groom the product backlog.
  • How to prioritise the backlog to maximise value.
  • How to systematically refine requirements.
  • How to confidently create a realistic release and track a project's progress.
  • How to collaborate effectively with and increase engagement from your development team.

There will be plenty of time for discussions and specific questions too.

The delegate

This CSPO course is aimed at those likely to be undertaking the role of product owner on a Scrum project, or those looking to improve their skill as a practising Product Owner. The class is kept small – no more than 20 people and usually around 12. Open conversation is encouraged throughout and there is a dedicated Q&A session to explore any concerns or practical queries. This enables you to share your own experiences and consider those of other participants.

There are no pre-requisites for my CSPO training and delegates of all backgrounds, industries, work experience and Scrum knowledge are welcome. I do suggest you familiarise yourself with theAgile Manifesto and The Scrum Guide beforehand.


The duration

This is a two-day course starting at 9am on both days and aiming to finish at 5pm on day one and 4.30pm on day two. Lunch is included on-site [you can choose from a great menu!] for both days and tea and coffee is provided too.

What’s included

  • Two-day CSPO with the UK’s leading Scrum coach (not self-titled, honest!). I was the first in the UK to become a Certified Scrum Trainer in 2005 and am also the longest serving Scrum coach in the UK.
  • A stellar lunch each day and free flowing tea and coffee.
  • A two year membership to Scrum Alliance.


Through my career I’ve seen a lot of instructors and I have to say that Geoff is the best I have ever met. The way the knowledge was presented made it interesting and the supporting exercises were very good! A colleague told me to wait for a Scrum course instructed by Geoff rather than participate in the first available course. And I must agree. – Jane Lisbeth Olsen, Statoil
