What’s included:

Learn to maximize value

Being a professional Product Owner encompasses more than writing requirements or managing a Product Backlog. Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of all product management aspects, including but not limited to product ownership, that drives value from their products.

Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) is a 2-day course that focuses on all of these areas to teach students how to maximize the value of products and systems. PSPO is the cutting-edge course for Product Owners, Agile product managers and anyone responsible for a product’s success in the market. In this course, students will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises. The breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product will become more clear from an Agile perspective. Metrics are identified to track the creation of value and the successful delivery of the product to the marketplace.

What you will learn

Over the 2 days, students will develop and solidify their knowledge of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises. The breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product will become more clear from an Agile perspective. Metrics are identified to track the creation of value and the successful delivery of the product to the marketplace.

The PSPO course is much more than just a set of slides and an instructor. In this course, students work on real-life cases with other classmates together as a team. This course is made up of discussions and hands-on exercises.

Professional Scrum Product Owner certification

All participants completing the PSPO course receive one password to take the PSPO I assessment. PSPO class participants who attempt the PSPO I assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost. As a student of the PSPO class, you are also entitled to a discount on the PSPO II assessment.

What my former students say

“The training itself was setup as a Scrum Sprint, all topics were handled as Product Backlog Items, the training schedule was the roadmap, and so on. Not your everyday Powerpoint slide training, there was even no Powerpoint at all. Great! And on top of that, Matthijs is an experienced Product Owner so he knows what he’s talking about. Learn Scrum from the best, learn from Matthijs.”

“I participated in Professional Scrum Product Owner Training which was facilitated by Matthijs. This was the best content and facilitated training that I have ever had. Matthijs balanced the complexity of the material with the need to handle questions from the delegates in a flexible and enjoyable way. Far from the normal “dry” training that I have had in the past.”

I have provided 100+ training courses and workshops in the fields of Scrum, Agile Product Development, Kanban, and personal leadership. Over the years, I have advised and coached 15+ different organizations within various industries like banking, healthcare, and retail. Before becoming an external consultant, coach, and trainer, I have been 5+ years part of different Scrum Teams as a Development Team member, Product Owner, and Scrum Master.

As a Professional Scrum Trainer and Accredited Kanban Trainer, I am trusted by the creators of Scrum and the Kanban Method to create the best possible foundation on which you can build upon in practice.

My training courses are characterized by minimizing use of Powerpoint slides, and maximizing iterative and incremental creation of visualizations on flip charts. These visualizations will help you recollect the lessons learned through the exercises we did, the conversations we had, and the reflections throughout the training course.

I believe that the best way to deliver a training course is by applying the values and principles from the Agile Manifesto on the training course itself. I practice what I preach.
