Overview

The Scrum process is built to deliver complete increments of your product at rapid and consistent intervals, which range from two-week sprints to one-month sprints.

As a product owner, you can prioritize and structure the Product Backlog in an informed way, incorporating crucial insights and answering the changing requirements or business needs.

In this course, you’ll gain a powerful method to contribute to projects – one that turns traditional project management on its head. After, you’ll have the tools necessary to identify and cancel unsuccessful projects early and run all other projects with confidence.

Following successful completion of the course, each participant will be designated a Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO).
