Professional Scrum Product Owner
The Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) course teaches people how to maximize the delivery of value through software products and systems. Agile Product Ownership today requires more than knowledge of how to write a User Story or manage a Product Backlog. Professional Product Owners need to have a concrete understanding of everything that drives value from their products. The PSPO course helps students develop and solidify this understanding – from early stakeholder management to release planning and delivery.
The PSPO course addresses a significant skill gap in the software development industry that we have seen growing over the last few years. An effective Product Owner is one of the best predictors of product success, but many Product Owners seem to misunderstand the breadth of the role’s responsibilities in delivering a successful product. Maximizing Return On Investment (ROI), optimizing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and capitalizing on product Agility are the things a Product Owner is intimately concerned with that the PSPO course focuses on.
The defined curriculum of the PSPO course is maintained and regularly enhanced by Scrum.org through contributions from Ken Schwaber and other experts in the Scrum.org network of Professional Scrum Trainers. Only the most qualified instructors are chosen to become Professional Scrum Trainers and deliver this course. Each instructor brings his or her individual experiences and areas of expertise to bear, but all students learn the same core course content. This improves their ability to pass the Professional Scrum Product Owner assessments and apply Scrum in their workplaces.

"I had a chance to see benefits of applying Scrum in a small project during training. As a result it is time to apply to the real life. I am grateful to our trainers for his effective education, support and patience."

"I had previously attended Scrum training given by another training company. Even though the content of the class was very logical to me I had hard time applying in real life. Because class was lack of practical knowledge. However when I attended ACM's training I learnt how to use Scrum in a project and we discussed about the most common problems. Now I am able to confidently suggest applying Scrum in all our projects to our management."
