This 2-day Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced (PSPO 2) training reflects on your role as Product Owner and teaches you how to maximize your day-to-day impact.

As a Product Owner, you master the basics of Scrum, as well as all the ins and outs of Agile product management. Along the way, you have encountered challenges that made you wonder how to maximize your day-to-day impact.

We move from understanding Scrum to mastering your Product Management skills with this course.

Define, estimate, measure, and evaluate value and organizational impact.

Who is it for?

This advanced training perfectly complements the introductory PSPO 1 course. It is designed for Product Owners who want to reflect on their role and widen their product management skills. It is also an excellent training course for Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, Chapter Leads, and Managers who wish to support their Product Owners’ professional growth.


You have a solid understanding of Scrum and the Scrum framework, and you have studied The Scrum Guide by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland.

You have at least one year of experience as a Product Owner.

You are part of a Scrum Team and/or have completed Product Owner training.

The PSPO 1 certificate is not required for participation. However, we highly recommend completing the Professional Scrum Product Owner 1 (PSPO 1) course first, as the PSPO 2 training course is most valuable if participants’ prior knowledge and experience match.

What others have to say

Marit van Rozendaal

Ahold Delhaize

I really like the interactive way of teaching, time went by very fast, with still some energy left at the end of the day. So good energy and good vibe.”


Wilbert Kerkhof

PO at Xebic Onderwijs

“I really liked the chance to interact with other product owners and learn from each other. In combination with the trainer putting these experiences and ideas into perspective using the 6 stances. It really made the course material stick for me.”


Kristel van de Riet


Showing the different stances of a product owner and the different stadia of a product owner: from scribe to CEO was the best part of the training.
I finally understood what a scrum master does when doing the governance exercise.
