Introduction

This document describes the Learning Objectives (LOs) that must be covered in a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) offering. These Learning Objectives take the following into consideration:

Every implementation of Scrum is different. Teams and organizations apply Scrum within their context, but the fundamental framework always remains the same.

The Learning Objectives for this offering are based on:

Scope

Scrum Alliance has adopted the Scrum Guide, The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game, co-authored and updated (most recently in 2017) by the co-creators of the Scrum framework, as the guiding curriculum for this offering. CSPO® candidates are expected to build a body of knowledge of the Scrum framework, including its roles, events, and artifacts. Incorporating Scrum principles and practices takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Scrum is a framework, not a prescriptive methodology. Participants in a CSPO offering should expect that each Learning Objective identified in this document will be covered. Students should also expect that the Scrum Foundations Learning Objectives are covered either before or during the offering.

Learning Objectives

The CSPO Learning Objectives fall into the following categories:

  • Product Owner Core Competencies
  • Describing Purpose and Strategy
  • Understanding Customers and Users

Testimonials

What Participants Have to Say About Our Trainer

I attended scrum session on May 4-5, 2019 in Mohali (Punjab) given by Preeth. There were 28 employees from FIS. It was pleasure to meet him. The way of explaining the concepts were simply the best. I am working in scrum since 2012 and had a different version of the importance of roles in my mind so it was never easy to understand the concepts because it was conflicting with what I have been doing/using. Preeth explained the concepts so well that helped me to clear the PSM-1 in 3 days. His communication skills, team forming nature, listening to the audience and answering the questions with his experience and knowledge using live examples impressed not only me but my other colleagues. Before attending this session, I use to have conflict of thinking of the role with my team's scrum master but now I understand the responsibility of the role. You can go through his profile on scrum.org and he is currently the one among 500 in the world who has cleared PSM-3. I would love to attend more sessions when ever I get an opportunity. Thank you Preeth.

Preeth was absolutely great trainer for PSM. Attended his training, and he had shared many practical scenarios on applying the Scrum framework. Very good listener and explained very well to us that we understand the concept fully rather than just purely running through course materials.

It had been a great experience to attend the PSM-I training given by Preeth. With his vast experience as Agile consultant and coach, he could give us a clearing understanding of the concepts. He is so spot on clearing our doubts with proper examples.His body language and voice modulation is so good to keep us active and energetic through out the session. At the end of the training, he was so successful that the entire team got a clear picture in their mind, the dos and don''ts while we practice scrum.

The practical experiences shared by Sumit are a good takeaway. He connects with the class more personally resolving all our doubts which is quite helpful. As I was travelling from Chennai to Bangalore I was scared that the class might cancel or postpone as it had happened previously with other trainer but the best part is he never cancels the class.

I attended the PSM training where I met my trainer Sumeet Madan. He is absolutely an amazing trainer. The entire training module was completely discussed along with his full-time engagement. He did explain all the topics with relevant real-time scenarios which actually helps to keep the scrum techniques in mind. Getting the training from someone is usually boredom, but the training class that I attended with Sumeet was completely lively and exuberant. Must say Amazing Trainer ..... Amazing Person......

Recently, I was trained under Sumeet for PSM 1 , he has immense knowledge of Scrum Master roles and all the best practices. The 2 day training was the best training I ever had. It was quite interesting and nobody in his class slept or left the class in between for even a second. The examples he gave with his experience in IT industry were apt with the situations we fell in sometimes. He gave the perfect solution for every problem. Thanks a lot Sumeet. I hope if we can work someday together , it will again be a great learning experience.
