Become a CSPO - the original & most globally recognised Certified Scrum Product Owner accreditation. Train with a globally acclaimed author & two Certified Scrum Trainers.
The Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) has fast become the most recognised professional certification focusing on Agile product management. It dovetails seamlessly with its famous sibling, the Certified Scrum Master (CSM). With a focus on product and feature validation, the CSPO teaches new Product Owners highly pragmatic, real-world patterns, techniques, tools and tips to help them ideate and formulate products and services that will delight their customers and stakeholders.
The CSPO is governed by the peak industry body, the Scrum Alliance. Home to the largest network of professional Scrum practitioners in the world – the Scrum Alliance applies the most stringent trainer certification process in the industry to ensure that you receive truly world-class Scrum training.
The previous in-person attendance requirement stipulated by the Scrum Alliance has been temporarily lifted to accommodate the current situation and we are excited to be able to offer our Certified Scrum Product Owner training session, virtually.
Our Virtual-Online course (laptop or desktop with Internet connection required) includes:
- Downloadable training materials;
- Real-time instruction;
- Relatable examples; AND
- The option to attend the same training course in-person at a later date at no additional cost
The course will contain the same unique AxisAgile content and will also focus on how Scrum teams can collaborate remotely. The class size will remain limited to ensure all attendees are still able to effectively collaborate with each other and with both trainers. Completed in real time, attendees will work together in small teams and learn not only from the trainers but also through discussion in breakout sessions, exercises, targeted games and simulations.
You get two CSTs
Your courses are led by two highly experienced, world-acclaimed instructors who are super energetic, passionate and funny (some would say at least...). Training with two CST certified instructors ensures a broader variety of war stories, more dynamic delivery, not to mention more parallel processing power to answer all questions thrown at them!
What is included in each course?
A copy of Scrum Shortcuts Without Cutting Corners
When attending our in-person session,you’ll receive your very own copy of 'Scrum Shortcuts Without Cutting Corners', the hugely popular book that was selected to be part of the ‘Mike Cohn Agile Signature Series’ (the premiere book series on Scrum and Agile globally). This book is full of great Agile tactics, tools and tips that many have found to be invaluable. But don't take our word for it, check out the reviews on Amazon!
Scrum Alliance Registration & Membership
At the conclusion of our course, you will become a member of the Scrum Alliance. Join the largest community of Scrum professionals and make the most of your free 2-year membership by reading and submitting articles, going to both regional and global Scrum gatherings, and being a part of this ever-growing community.
We're here to support you!
Don't worry, when you've concluded your training with us, we're still here to help. Email us and we'll reply. That's another advantage of having two highly experienced trainers. There's more of us to go round!
Two decks of Planning Poker cards
Not only do you get to play some Planning Poker during our courses, when you come along to an in-person session, you also get to take home two decks of high quality AxisAgile Planning Poker cards. Each deck has four colours and instruction cards so you can kick off your estimation sessions with a bang!
Stylish USB pen with all electronic materials
Getting a USB stick with all of the electronic course materials is cool. What’s even cooler is getting a stylish pen that has an embedded USB stick with not only the course materials but additional reading as well! This little gem will be yours when you come along to an in-person course. Until then, all relevant virtual course material will be available online and/or sent to you prior to the course.
Workbooks to help you connect with the course
On the day of your in-person training, you will receive a fill-in-the-gaps workbook to use and follow along with during the course. This has been specifically designed to help reinforce key learnings. For our virtual courses, an electronic version of this workbook will be made available to you.
Two booklets to help you on your Agile journey
You don’t just receive a best-selling Scrum book but at the in-person course you will also receive two extremely practical booklets written by another industry expert, Pete Deemer. The ‘Distributed Scrum Primer’ offers hints and tips to help make Scrum work across a geographically dispersed team, and the ‘Manager and Scrum’ offers a brief Scrum overview targeted at senior managers. Our virtual course attendees will receive an online version of both booklets.
Sleek laptop case to keep it all together
