About this Event

Led by a former Product Owner

Rowan Bunning has played the role of Product Owner whilst Product Manager in a tech. start-up beginning in 2004. As a Scrum Master he has coached executive-level business owners to be highly effective Product Owners. These experiences enable him to speak from first-hand experience and illustrate through story telling what is possible when a Product Owner is fully empowered and skilled.

Having led almost 400 Scrum certification courses since 2008, Rowan is one of the most experienced Scrum Trainers in the region.

Rowan has worked in pure-play product development without projects – an environment in which Agile and Product Ownership are particular effective. His training examines how top tech. companies do product innovation. If you work in a corporate project environment, many of the same techniques can be applied and can be game-changing.

Real world stories and hard-won advice from Rowan’s hands-on Product Owner experience make this training compelling. Small group exercises through the course using a broad selection of the most powerful tools for Product Owners make it highly practical with numerous tools and reference material to immediately apply in your work.

Live Virtual Training

There's no need to worry about missing out compared with in-person training. This course is not a series of pre-recorded videos that you passively watch. This CSPO is a live interactive virtual experience with the trainer coming to you live from Sydney, Australia. It covers all the same learning objectives as our in-person CSPOs - just using a different interaction medium. As a bonus, you will come away with a lot of practical techniques for remote working!

You can expect a highly interactive virtual learning experience with continuous live video amongst all participants. The course is designed to exploit the potential of state-of-the-art online collaboration tools as well as leveraging research-based adult eLearning approaches to maximise learner interaction and retention. All this from the comfort of your own home / office / home office!

Instead of sitting and staring at a screen for long 8 hour days, this course is scheduled in 4 hour sessions across 4 consecutive business days. The session timings in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) are as follows:

  • Session 1: Monday 7th December 9am - 1pm (AEST)
  • Session 2: Tuesday 8th December 9am - 1pm (AEST)
  • Session 3: Wednesday 9th December 9am - 1pm (AEST)
  • Session 4: Thursday 10th December 9am - 1pm (AEST)

The session timings in New Zealand Standard Time (NZST) are as follows:

  • Session 1: Monday 7th December 11am - 3pm (NZST)
  • Session 2: Tuesday 8th December 11am - 3pm (NZST)
  • Session 3: Wednesday 9th December 11am - 3pm (NZST)
  • Session 4: Thursday 10th December 11am - 3pm (NZST)

How to earn Certification

This Certified Scrum Product Owner training course is all-inclusive of a globally recognised certification with the Scrum Alliance for participants who fulfil the participation requirements defined by Scrum Alliance and are validated by the trainer as having met the learning objectives during the course. Whilst some prior coursework including reading and video material is required, there is no post-course exam.

This course qualifies Project Management Professionals (PMPs) for 14 PDUs as approved by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

Addressing the big Product Owner challenges to boost your career

The Product Owners that we work with are encountering many challenges that limit their effectiveness. These include poor understanding of the role, lack of empowerment, lack of product management techniques for working with product vision and strategy as well as too much time consumed by ineffective stakeholder meetings and detailed story clarification. All this whilst trying to make difficult Product steering decisions in an environment of uncertainty!

Scrum WithStyle's Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO®) course addresses all of the above challenges head-on and from personal experience. We debunk Product Owner role myths, explore practical ways to increase empowerment, apply multiple techniques for working at the strategic and vision levels as well as ways to make user, customer and other stakeholder interactions more productive whilst delegating much of the heavy lifting on detail appropriately.

Product Owners and the professionals that coach, support and manage them will leave this course with deep insights, many practical tools and a spark of inspiration toward taking their career from requirement specifier to product leader and entrepreneur.

Session Themes

Just as themes on a Product Backlog tie together items in a meaningful way, themes tie together our course content as follows.

  1. Scrum for Product Owners: sharpen your understanding of Scrum – especially the principles, events and artefacts of most importance to a Product Owner.
  2. The Product Owner Role: clarify the full breadth and depth of the Product Owner role well beyond The Scrum Guide before discovering a customer and creating a shared Product Vision.
  3. Product Strategy: do business impact mapping, hypothesis testing, segmentation and Agile roadmapping to shift the paradigm to outcomes and impacts over outputs.
  4. Prioritisation: practice telling user stories, framing meaningful Sprint Goals, ordering using multiple value dimensions, fore-casting and making trade-off decisions.
