Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner

qualification for the entire crew

Dear customers,

Since our A-CSM and A-CSPO training is designed as a remote blended learning program, it is NOT affected by the current developments around Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and takes place as usual.

However, we consider the current situation not only as a challenge, but also as an opportunity: Therefore, we will additionally discuss possibilities and examples of remote collaboration within a team. In this way you as a participant build up additional know-how that is particularly useful at the moment.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

In this in-service training program, which lasts between 14 weeks and up to one year, depending on the individual learning speed, practical product owners can deepen their expertise and take the next step towards becoming a Certified Scrum Professional® by obtaining the A-CSPO certificate. This is the basis for all further certifications like Certified Team Coach®, Certified Enterprise Coach® or Certified Scrum Trainer® (CST®).

With this program, unique in Germany, you can reach the A-CSPO completely online without having to leave your current project for several days at a time. You acquire new knowledge in small units and can then apply it directly in your team. You will receive personal feedback on your exercises and questions from a Certified Scrum Trainer, who is accredited by the Scrum Alliance®, the largest non-profit organization in the agile environment, in a multi-year process according to the highest standards. Every month you will also have the opportunity to exchange experiences with other participants and the CST in coaching sessions. Here you can ask questions, share your insights and ideas and benefit from the experiences of others.

that’s what this training is all about:

  • Learn how to deal with several business initiatives of competing stakeholders.
  • Learn helpful techniques for expressing and prioritizing Product Backlog Items.
  • Establish a clear product vision so that your product remains focused on the features that customers and users really need.
  • Learn to communicate effectively with different stakeholder groups and align them towards common goals.
  • Define and validate the business value of your product
  • Be perceived as someone who achieves relevant business results.
  • Achieve certification as an A-CSPO. This enables you to become a CSP-PO.
