The Certified Scrum Product Owner course is an interactive two-day training course, accredited by Scrum Alliance. It allows delegates to explore the role of the Scrum Product Owner in detail. It covers the ways in which a Scrum Product Owner will interact with a Scrum     team, the responsibilities of the Scrum Product Owner and their responsibilities to the business and Scrum team.

Scrum is a simple yet incredibly powerful set of principles and practices that help teams deliver products in short cycles, enabling fast feedback, continual improvement, and rapid adaptation to change. As the leading Agile development framework, Scrum has predominantly been used for software development, but it is also proving to be effective in efforts far beyond.

Certification in Scrum is provided by the Scrum Alliance - a membership organization that encourages and supports the widespread adoption and effective practice of Scrum.
