Certified Scrum Product Owner

Sliger Solutions workshops combine interactive instruction, hands-on exercises, and real-life simulations to provide attendees with an all-encompassing learning experience.

This workshop provides attendees with an overview of Scrum specifically geared toward aspiring Product Owners, i.e. those on the business side who represent the end-user community and are authorized to make decisions about the product. Delivered by Michele Sliger, an experienced ScrumMaster and former Scrum Alliance board member, this course explains the Scrum framework, as well as Product Owner specific topics such as creating and splitting user stories, development of vision statements and product roadmaps, and managing stakeholder expectations. Following the successful completion of the course, each participant will be designated as a Certified Product Owner (CSPO). The class includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where exclusive Product Owner materials and information are available.

This course is taught by a PMP certified instructor and provides 14 PDUs to qualified PMI members.

Michele offers public classes through a variety of vendors. For private classes, call 720-279-8445 or contact us for more information about availability and pricing.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is appropriate for those who will be responsible for defining what the product should do and how it should behave. While Product Owners should come from the business side of the organization, those who find themselves serving in a “proxy” role for the Product Owner, such as business analysts and user experience analysts, will also benefit from attending. A maximum of 15 attendees allows each person to get the most out of the interactive exercises and discussions.
