What comes to your mind when you hear the term Product Owner? 

If terms like Product development, client interface, and product backlog management strike your mind, then you are on the right track as to what the Product Owner does. 

Today’s topic of discussion is the Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) Certification and its benefits. But, before we talk about it, let’s do a quick overview of Scrum and what CSPO is.  Off we go!

What is Scrum?

Scrum is a lightweight framework for building, delivering, and sustaining products in a complex environment.

It is a quick, adaptive, and responsive framework that is designed to build products faster and offer value to customers. 

The Scrum framework splits development work into sprints that last 1 to 4 weeks. Every sprint concludes with a functional product of the final deliverable. 

How is CSPO different from other certifications?

The Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) is a certification offered by Scrum Alliance which is the trusted Agile certifying body that is not for profit. They have been operational since 2001 and they have 1, 082, 451 certificates and counting.  Scrum Alliance is driven by values such as courage, focus, openness, respect, and commitment which are the core values of Scrum.

Benefits of Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) certification

  • 1Develop a concrete understanding of the Scrum framework: The CSPO certification provides a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum framework, values, practices, and principles. It provides hands-on scrum training which helps you understand the core Scrum knowledge and also how to apply it. The primary responsibility of a CSPO is product value optimization as they decide the features to be built through the creation of user stories.
  • 2Elaborate on the Product Backlog: The major responsibility of a Product Backlog is to prepare the list of tasks in the Product Backlog. Just like the Scrum Master, the product owner interacts with the Scrum developers often. Hence, the product backlog must be well understood for the developers to start working. The CSPO certification training will enable attendees to learn product backlog management to define product backlog items correctly. This ensures that there is no confusion.
  • 3The interface between clients and developers: The CSPO certification enables Product Owners to act as a bridge between clients and developers. They will be able to communicate the needs of the customers to the developers to prioritize the tasks in the product backlog. They seek feedback from the customers regularly to ensure that the developers develop a product that meets the expectations of the customers. This provides room for innovation and develops products that offer business value.
  • 4For absolute beginners: The CSPO certification is for absolute beginners. You don’t need to have prior knowledge to attend the CSPO certification training. You will have to learn the basics of Scrum and its core knowledge while the course covers the Agile Manifesto and its influence on the Scrum framework. With this, you will understand the Product Owner’s roles and responsibilities.
  • 5Paves the way for advanced certifications: The CSPO serves as the base for learning to become a Product Owner. It is the entry-level certification that serves as the foundation for further advanced certifications. It will teach about the Scrum framework, managing and prioritizing the backlog, and the key responsibilities of a Product Owner.
  • 6Earn high irrespective of educational background: Every CSPO-certified individual will earn at par with peers irrespective of their educational background. The CSPO certification means a new start to a career as a Product Owner. Your educational qualification will have no bearing on your salary scale.
  • 7Client Servicing: The Product Owner must be able to understand the customer requirements to define useful features and add them to the product backlog. The CSPO certification will empower Product Owners with Agile and Scrum knowledge to be able to help the client better. In some cases, the client might be well-versed in Agile. In such cases, a CSPO will be able to better interact with the clients.
  • 8 Correct use of velocity ranges: Accurate planning accompanies a fixed timeline and date which is possible by rightly using the velocity ranges. The CSPO certification training consists of actionable training on how to use the velocity ranges. The appropriate way to use burndown charts to enhance the team’s performance is one of the lessons in the CSPO certification training.
  • 9Healthy Team understanding: The Product Owner's primary responsibility is to follow the client's requirements and their priority for updating their product. The CSPO course teaches how to work with the Developer so that they understand all of the necessary features, ideas, and any special requests from the client. Issues can arrive from multiple clients or different departments or even between employees and also, you must have a technical understanding when it comes down to development because this will help you very shortly when you are in charge of maintaining your product.
