Agile product management is different from traditional project management. There are different processes, meetings, and artifacts, like the product and sprint backlog. Agile is also a different way of thinking. Instead of completing the entirety of a project before a single launch, Agile is about finishing a minimum viable product and getting user feedback to improve subsequent releases.
The Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training workshop benefits anyone whose role is to create and manage the product vision to completion. At the end of the Scrum Alliance CSPO 2-day workshop, participants are able to work the entire Agile product management process, from vision to deployment, using Agile concepts and practices.
Our Certified Product Owner class is worth 16 SEU’s or PDU’s. Visit our FAQ page to learn how to claim SEU’s or PDU’s. We understand that training is an investment. We will work with individuals on a case-by-case basis to determine a price suitable for both parties. Call 512-298-2835 for more information.

Cultivating a Product Discovery Mindset
True agility moves away from the notion that we know everything upfront. A great Product Owner leads the team through continuous discovery of the customers pains and needs. We will explore techniques for learning more about our customers and how to iterate to building the “right product.”
Experiment Driven Development
What if we treated every requirement like an educated guess or a hypothesis? In this module, a fundamental shift in how we articulate requirements and accelerate learning cycles by running small experiments to validate or invalidate our assumptions as fast as possible.
