Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner Course (with Zuzana Sochova)

ACSPO certification by the Scrum Alliance with Zuzana Sochova

A-CSPO – Advanced Certified Product Owner course – is part of the extended advanced Product Owner education. It’s not any boring PowerPoint class, it’s an interactive workshop based on the facilitation and coaching at the system level. Full of simulations, conversations, and experience sharing.

Being a great Product Owner is a journey. Incorporating Scrum principles and practices takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Scrum is a framework, not a prescriptive methodology.

The A-CSPO agenda is defined by A-CSPO Learning Objectives which fall into the following categories:

🔎 Product Owner Core Competencies

🔎 Advanced Purpose and Strategy

🔎 Empathizing with Customers and Users

🔎 Advanced Product Assumption Validation

🔎 Advanced Techniques for Working with the Product Backlog​

* This agenda is rough as it will be adjusted based on participant interests and the amount of questions. We will be using Scrum for the course, and thus the Course Backlog is subject to change based on participant requests and feedback.
