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.

If you have a Visa or Mastercard credit card you can pay in up to 12 monthly installments. There are no fees or interest if you pay on time! Your available credit must be enough to cover the full cost and there is a hold on your credit card for the amount that you have not paid.

For example, if your final fee is $1,000 and you chose 10 installments:

  • You would pay $100 today and have a $900 hold placed on your credit card.
  • The following month your credit card would be charged another $100 and the hold would be reduced to $800.
  • Each month you pay $100 and each month the hold is reduced by $100.

Certified Scrum Product Owner

Starting Your Journey to Product Excellence

Certified Scrum Product Owner Logo

The Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) was the world's first 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.

Key Details

A unique CSPO course taught by a highly engaging agile product management expert

Live and Interactive

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.

Scrum from a PO Perspective

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.

Hands on and Deep

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.

Based on 48+ Years Agile Experience

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.

Agenda

Core Topic Areas

The class is highly interactive. A small portion of the training material is done sequentially. Approximately 2.5 hours into the session we start a simulation and use the questions and learning from the simulation to drive the class flow.

Job Prospects for Product Owners

The job market is volatile now, but in the long termProduct Owner / Product Manager jobs will continue to grow, and the salaries for them will likely be generous

Frequently Asked Questions About Product Owner Positions and Salaries

How are job prospects now with the uncertainly in the economy?
At the time of this writing in late March 2023, many organizations, especially those that grew rapidly over the last few years, are reducing headcount. They are often letting go of employees indiscriminately, including those with deep domain experience and knowledge.

Fortunately, at least at present, those with strong skills continue to find roles, often at smaller companies. With that, taking a session like this should be viewed as something that will help you, but you will also need to do considerable work outside of the classroom, to advance your career.
What is the difference between Product Owner and Product Manager and how does that impact salary?
Terminology varies widely. In some organizations, a Product Manager may be more senior than a Product Owner and thus earn more. In other organizations, especially those who have adopted agile, there may only be a Product Owner. To complicate matters even more, the terms are Product Manager and Product Owner are often synonyms, meaning different words, same thing.

Glad we could clear that up : )
Will taking the class get me a job as a Product Owner?
Taking this class will not guarantee you a position, but it will increase the probability of getting an interview.

Our sessions provide you both a conceptual understanding as well as practical take-aways as our trainers have deep experience in the field. The probability of receiving a job offer depends on your background and willingness to continue to work hard outside of the class room.
These salaries seem high, are they achievable for me?
The sample salaries across companies were obtained from Indeed.com on 29-May-2022. Many Product Owners work in Information Technology (IT) and IT jobs are generally well compensated. Realistically you should not expect to start at the high end of the range unless you have deep, salient experience and knowledge.

Everything Included

No Nasty Surprises!

Be careful of the company you pick.

There are no surprise costs when you register or accept your license and we have a user friendly transfer and cancellation policy.

Practice Quizzes?

There is no exam, but the quizzes reinforce learnings

There is no exam for your certification, but you can still get significant benefit from our practice quizzes as they help ensure you know the basics so your classroom experience can focus on the big picture.

  • The practice quizzes are active learning that increases retention.
  • They apply what cognitive science calls retrieval practice.
  • Retrieval practice makes learning challenging which helps you remember the material.

If you have time prior to the session use them as a refresher. Or perhaps, during the session you notice some weak spots and review the quizzes post class to fill in the knowledge gaps.
