To register please contact Nicoleta Danis, at nicoleta.danis@mozaicworks.com

About

This intermediate level training is recommended for all profiles who wish to successfully understand how to function effectively as the product owner, or customer, for a Scrum team. You will learn about activities such as managing stakeholders, ROI, backlog grooming, creating effective stories, acceptance criteria for stories, defining done, and so on.

CSPO training provides an applied understanding of the Scrum process and helps participants begin to develop the tools, insights, and skills required to apply Scrum on their projects and across their organizations.

Who should attend

The CSPO is for managers, analysts, product managers, and anyone interested in working on or with a Scrum team. You will leave with solid knowledge of how and why Scrum works. Through practical, hands-on exercises and small-group discussion you will be prepared to plan your first (or next) sprint immediately after this class. ScrumMasters can benefit from this course, because they must coach Product Owners in these skills.

Topics covered

Through a combination of immersive team-based learning, exercises, and real-world case studies, you will learn how to:

  • Plan, initiate and lead a Scrum project
  • Develop the initial Product Backlog
  • Improve the identification of Business Value
  • Establish a shared vision for the entire team
  • Generate an agile release plan utilizing user stories and story point estimation
  • Manage the Gap between customer expectations and the Team’s ability to deliver
  • Improve business value engineering
  • Balance new features against digging out of technical debt
  • Refactor the Product Backlog continuously
  • Lead the Team and yet have the Team remain self-managing
  • Work with Stakeholders to make them more effective
