Join me and Paul Goddard on our unique two-day Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO) training course where we will help you take your Product Owner skills from good to great.
Paul & I are two of the leading Scrum thinkers in the world. Having started our agile journeys helping lead one of the biggest agile transformations at British Telecom back in 2001, we have since helped companies across the world get the most out of Scrum. Between us we have authored four books, keynoted at conferences in 3 continents and recorded over 50 pubcasts! As well as our obvious agile backgrounds, we also have other skills such as professional coaching, improvisational theatre and sports coaching that we weave into our work to help teams and organisations grow and develop.
Product management is a tough gig! Working as a Product Manager or a Product Owner is simultaneously rewarding and challenging. Having the opportunity to create a new product that makes users’ lives easier or better is exciting and energising. However aligning, guiding, and influencing the various stakeholders can feel like herding cats.
This workshop will teach you how to master the key aspects of a product owner’s job.
This advanced course is aimed at practicing product owners who are looking to go beyond the basic mechanics of the role. This course will build on your knowledge of the Scrum framework and the techniques taught in the entry-level CSPO class by helping you understand and master the psychological and personal elements that underpin the difficulties of the role.
There are a number of requirements to be eligible for the A-CSPO certification:
- An active CSPO certification
- Successful completion of the pre-work we will send you before the course
- Successful demonstration of knowledge of the A-CSPO learning objectives
- Successful completion of the post-work we will send you after the course
“I am not normally one for the gushy type compliments, but I honestly don’t think I have been quite so engaged and enthused on any other course I have attended as I have on this A-CSPO, and I would whole heartedly put this down to both Geoff and Paul’s truly inspirational coaching. The training went above and beyond what I expected; hats off to you both” – James Marston
Drawing from the lessons shared in my best-selling agile book, I will help you understand what is difficult about each of these characteristics and what you can do to make it easier.
There will be plenty of time for specific questions from attendees. After successfully completing this course you will be awarded the A-CSPO by the Scrum Alliance.
