All CSPO courses are taught by Certified Scrum Trainers. Taking a CSPO course and the corresponding evaluation designates you as a Certified Scrum Product Owner, which indicates that you have been introduced to the basic concepts you need to perform as a Product owner or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.

A well-educated and knowledgable Product Owner is absolutely essential to deliver a successful product and to support your organization’s use of Scrum.  Apart from some basic principles and the Product Backlog, the Scrum framework is silent on how the Product Owner satisfies users, management, and the Team - and delights the customer.  During this two-day workshop facilitated by consultant and Certified Scrum Trainer Carlton Nettleton, participants will learn how to analyze stakeholders and define needs, learn the latest approach to building, prioritizing, and optimizing the Product Backlog, and learn the importance of engaging multiple stakeholders in creating a compelling vision that will maximize business value.

This interactive workshop is entirely focused on arming participants with the latest, well-tested tools, tricks and techniques needed by Product Owners.  Using Carlton’s experience with helping clients grow powerful Product Owners and the experience of the other participants, you will learn what tools work and what tools do not work for the Product Owner.


The learning objectives for this course are:


  • Discuss the key responsibilities and rights of the Product Owner.
  • Explain the importance of the Product Backlog and how it is used in Scrum.
  • Practice a new model for thinking about the Product Backlog, organizing the Product Backlog items and identifying non-functional requirements.
  • Practice each step in constructing a Product Backlog from initiating a compelling vision, identifying user needs, writing Product Backlog items and developing a product roadmap.
  • Explain how to create personas and how to use them to identify hidden requirements and ways to exceed the customer's expectations.
  • Describe how to engage the Team members, users, customers and stakeholders in co-creating requirements and features.
  • Identify the profile of behaviors and attitudes that enable someone to be a powerful Product Owner and the behaviors and attitudes that augment their impact.
  • Practice applying multiple prioritization techniques to maximize business value.
  • Rehearse writing user stories and acceptance criteria.


This two-day course will begin to clear away that murkiness through short, focused lectures by a qualified Certified Scrum Trainer teaching the basics of Scrum as well as practical tools gathered while mentoring and consulting with organizations learning to apply Scrum.

An important aim of this course is to leverage the wide-ranging knowledge and experience of the participants, so expect a significant amount of this course will be spent in peer-to-peer interactions, hands-on activities and drawing connections between the classroom material and your day-to-day experience. This course will equip the participants with the knowledge on how to facilitate Scrum in their teams and begin the process of change in their organization.


Who Should Attend

Any person who is interested in learning more about Scrum or wants to make Scrum work better for their Team or organization, is encouraged to attend. While the focus of the class is for people who want to learn how to leverage the Scrum framework to bring about change, any member of Team or the organization who is interested in how to use Scrum would find this class useful.

Do I receive PDU credits for a CSPO course and how do I claim it?

You claim 14 PDUs from the Certified Scrum Product Owner class. You will be reporting Scrum trainings conducted by Conscires as Category B. There is no limit to the number of hours you can report in this category.

According to the PMP handbook: ‘Contact hours of project and/or program management education may be earned by attending relevant educational courses offered by organizations not registered with PMI. To calculate the number of PDUs earned, use the following formula: one contact hour of learning relevant to project and/or program management within a structured activity or course equals one PDU. Documentation required upon PMI audit/request: registration form, certificate or letter of attendance, and a brochure or course materials outlining the subject matter covered and the qualifications of the instructor/lecturer.’ Most CSTs can tell you how many PDUs their course offers.
