What will I learn?

You are ready to embark on your Product Owner journey. But how do you become a Professional Scrum Product Owner?

As a Professional Scrum Product Owner, you will learn to maximize the value of your product. That requires more than basic knowledge. You will need to know all aspects of product management. The accredited PSPO 1 training gives you all the insights and skills to excel.

Key takeaways

  1. Gain all the tools and knowledge to become a Professional Product Owner.
  2. Walk away with concrete steps to further explore and improve your role as a Product Owner.
  3. Get certified; grab your chance to earn your PSPO I certificate and advance on your journey to Professional Product Management.


On the first course day, we start with the foundations of Scrum: Agile Product Management, Value-Driven Development, and the Scrum Framework.

During the second day, we will dive into the Scrum Framework and pragmatize Product Ownership by exploring the Product Backlog and providing insights regarding Release Management and Forecasting.

In this course, we use many practical examples, but we insist you practice a lot yourself.

  • Agile Product Management: Explore the accountabilities of the Product Owner, from the product mindset to the entrepreneurial view.
  • Value-Driven Development: What is value? How do you measure it, and when is it generated?
  • Scrum Theory and Empiricism: Explore what empiricism is, when it applies, and what is needed for it to exist.
  • The Scrum Framework: Introduction to the world of Scrum to learn about the roles, events, and artifacts.

Who is it for?

This course is for anyone accountable for new products. You may already be a Product Owner and are now ready to take the next step.

The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) training is perfect for anyone with a basic understanding of Scrum and Product Management. Furthermore, it is also ideally suited for Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches who seek to better support their Product Owner(s) in their growth.


A basic understanding of Scrum and product management is beneficial but is not required.

You will learn all the basics in this training!

However, we expect you to have studied The Scrum Guide by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland before starting this course.
