Product Owner Training – Virtual
Dave Prior—Certified Scrum Trainer, leads the virtual, two-day learning experience. He is joined in our virtual classes by Jeff Howey and AJ Sanford. In addition to the Scrum Alliance covered material, our team brings decades of experience to the class with thought provoking examples, discussion of real-world scenarios, interactive exercises as well as examples and stories about what happens when you step out of the classroom and practice Scrum in the wild.
When Covid-19 necessitated that we move to virtual training, LeadingAgile made a decision to set up all virtual training classes with a team of instructors to ensure that we are able to maintain the same level of interactivity in a virtual environment, while deepening our ability to connect with each student. Our virtual classes will always maintain a teacher to student ratio of (at most) 1 to 10.
By the end of the class you will return to your team(s) with a variety of new tools and practices that will amp up your ability to guide them to delivery of a successful product. Attendees of the class should expect to leave with a solid understanding of the Scrum Framework, the responsibilities of the Product Owner on a Scrum Team and critical skills and practices that are required to serve a high performing Scrum Team as a Product Owner.
Use Scrum to Learn Scrum
CSPO training is divided up into four Sprints in order to allow participants to fully immerse themselves in the Scrum framework. The learning modules for the course are listed in a Product Backlog which includes each Learning Objective (LO’s) established by the Scrum Alliance for this class. Throughout the class students will be reviewing the LO’s and be asked to accept them if they feel that the topic is complete. This is our way of QAing each topic and making sure that the participants know we have met the class Learning Objectives. In addition to this, the class includes many topics and exercises which are not listed in the LO’s but are a big part of making sure that each participant leaves the class with tools and practices they can bring back to work and implement right away.
Throughout the course participants will get hands-on practice with the role of Product Owner by continually refining the backlog, working on teams to create a new product and take it through the levels of Agile planning in the same way a Product Owner would. We’ll define product vision, create a Roadmap and Release Plan, work with User Stories, and several different techniques for prioritization. As we work through each stage of the Sprint, the attendees will get practice in fulfilling the responsibilities of the Product Owner. At the completion of each Sprint the class will inspect and plan to adapt during the Sprint Retrospective. Throughout the entire course, as the Scrum Framework is presented, the instructor will be addressing each topic with practical advice that stems from real world experience working with Scrum Teams.
