The Certified Scrum Product Owner®, a.k.a. the CSPO, was the world's fist agile certification for product development and is still the most popular. It covers Product Owner (PO) activities through the lens of the Scrum Framework focusing on the effectiveness paradigm where we discover what to build instead of delivering what was planned.
The session provides you the intellectual tools you need to ensure that we continually learn so we can deliver those items that are most likely to increase company ROI, add value for the customer, and create new learning. If you are product focused and want to expedite your journey towards evidence based product development, where data, not emotion, drives your decisions, take the Grow-Lean Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) session.

He further expanded his knowledge by becoming a Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt during his six-year tenure leading a Lean-Agile practice. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to co-found the consultancy LitheSpeed, which he successfully led for fifteen years before joining Grow-Lean.

The Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) was the world's fist agile certification for product development and is still the most popular. The Grow-Lean CSPO covers Product Owner (PO) behaviors, actions and activities through the lens of the Scrum Framework. If you are product focused and want to expedite your journey towards evidence based product development, where data, not emotion, drives your decisions, take the Grow-Lean Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) session. Our session is 100% hands on, with zero slides, and it is an actual product development course, as compared to requirements workshop offered by others.
Participate in an in-depth, hands-on, 100% live workshop with no slides and no PowerPoint. Improve your product development via excercises and scenarios, going from high level concept down to build ready details.
Along the way learn about the Story Mapping, Story Writing, Shift Left Testing, and other conceptual tools that all Product Owners should know.
There are many Product Owner sessions that are delivered by trainers who have either never done, or have not recently been involved in, agile product development. So, if you want a Certified ScrumMaster packaged as a CSPO you have many options. If you want a deep course on actual agile product development, choose Grow-Lean.
We cover Scrum, but from the perspective of a PO, and we go well beyond the Scrum guide to help you apply tools fit for your context.
In this session you learn by doing. We will spend a considerable amount of time creating a Positioning Statement, Lean Canvas, Story Map, and Stories, for a realistic scenario.
We will also do exercises like the one shown where learn via a small case study.
As a result, you leave ready to apply what you have learned.
This live online workshop is based a collaboration of Arlen Bankston and David Bulkin, who combined, have just short of 50 years of agile product development experience. Both have trained thousands on agile product development, meaning, you get an authentic, quality, learning experience.
At present there is no examination required to achieve the Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) Certification. Taking the session earns your CSPO if you participate in at least 14 hours of class time.
Grow-Lean covers the certification fees and you receive two years of Scrum Alliance Membership.
The certification will help differentiate you , but more importantly the learning will allow you to interview with more confidence and apply core product development techniques in the work place.
The CSPO also allows you to pursue the Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO) and Certified Scrum Professional Product Owner (CSP-PO) certification, to complete the Path to CSP.
The Product Owner role is a critical and challenging position. The role of the PO is often misunderstood and it can be difficult to navigate because all of the mis-information in the market.
Fortunately, our CSPO offers tried-and-true methods to help you overcome challenges. You will have a better understanding of the role and be equipped with practical tools to help you succeed.

Our in person events mix electronic and physical tools, and small group discussions, to create an interactive, fun, training experience. Virtual technology includes Mural (an infinite virtual board) and Mentimeter (word clouds, polling, quizzes).
