Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO)

Take your Product Owner skills to the next level.

You take pride in your ability to maximize the flow of value to your customers. You want to create products your customers rave about. You want your teams to collaboratively deliver high value, Sprint after Sprint. You want to influence others in the organization by showing what great Product Ownership looks like.

Nothing convinces like delivering. But you already know that.

Sound familiar? You’ve come to the right place.

A Fresh Approach

What does an Agile approach to advanced training look like?

  • It is iterative
  • Delivered in small slices with validation along the way
  • It is collaborative, with small teams working together to continuously improve
  • It is focused on delivering the highest value first, inspecting and adapting along the way

Our A-CSPO program is firmly grounded in these Agile principles. Rather than a “big batch” delivery of content, we break the training up into small slices of content with practice in between.

Learn alongside, and work with, other A-CSPO qualified Product Owners from various industries in a cohort-style virtual class. Practice concepts from the class with your team each week and help each other level up.

Upping Your Game

Here’s what to expect.

We meet virtually, every Friday, in a six-week cohort-based program.

Far from some boring slides and a lecture, we have designed these virtual sessions to be every bit as interactive and engaging as our in-person, brain-friendly training approach that thousands of clients have come to know and love.

We integrate our Training from the Back of the Room approach to virtual learning to help you learn new concepts in a way that really sticks. Best of all, the virtual sessions are just a kick-off for the week.

Each session ends with an invitation to practice the new concepts with your team or organization, and the next session always starts with a review of your experience during the week.

Think of each week as a learning Sprint, planned during the virtual session, executed during the week, reviewed at the beginning of the next one.

By the end of the Program, you will be able to:

  • Define Value for your organization
  • Effectively collaborate with multiple stakeholder groups
  • Deeply understand the problems and opportunities for existing and potential customers
  • Quickly validate new product and feature ideas
  • Effectively create and communicate strategy
  • Take an Agile approach to roadmaps and release plans
  • Refine your Product Backlog like a pro

This course is not for everyone.

It is for people serious about upping their game around great Product Ownership. It requires a commitment to be present and practice before and during the program. The cohort participants help each other get better and they develop a strong connection and a lasting network of like-minded Product thinkers. For this reason, we have an application process to ensure the program is right for you.

Commonly Asked Questions.

Do I have to have my CSPO certification already to do A-CSPO?

Yes, A-CSPO builds on CSPO, and Scrum Alliance requires that the courses and certifications be done in order. However, your CSPO doesn’t have to be from us. Our A-CSPO prerequisite assessment and online course will ensure all participants start the program with the same concepts and skills.

Why take your A-CSPO training with us?

Unlike some other A-CSPO courses, we use accelerated learning techniques to maximize learning and retention (this is extremely rare for online courses, in particular).

What is there beyond A-CSPO?

The A-CSPO is part of the Scrum Alliance Path to CSP program. The Scrum Alliance has additional information and available certifications options on their website here.
