Professional Scrum Product Owner™ Certifications

Validate and certify their understanding of the accountabilities of the Product Owner 

Product Description

What is a Professional Scrum Product Owner™ 

Professional Scrum Product Owners demonstrate the knowledge and understanding of Scrum, the Product Owner role and their ability to apply that knowledge in real-world situations.  The value of certification is intimately tied to the demonstration of knowledge needed to achieve it. By that measure, the PSPO assessments are significantly more valuable than available alternatives for Scrum Product Ownership. And, we strive to ensure that they remain valuable and relevant through frequent inspection and adaptation of the assessment content.

About this course

Prove Your Knowledge of Product Ownership.

The Product Owner is pivotal to bridging business strategy and product execution in order to help the Scrum Team create valuable products.

The Professional Scrum Product Owner™ (PSPO I) certification validates your knowledge of the Scrum framework and your ability to support and enable value creation and delivery.

Earning PSPO I shows your understanding of how to bridge the gap between strategy and agile product management in order to create valuable products using Scrum. 


In this two day class* students will develop and solidify their knowledge of the Scrum framework and the accountabilities of being a Product Owner through instruction and team-based exercises. Students learn techniques that they can use to help them overcome the challenges that are often encountered on a day-to-day basis.  They will do this while learning better ways to work with the organization, stakeholders, customers and their team to provide greater value in the product being delivered.

Course Syllabus
