What You Will Learn
How to Focus on the Customer
Building a successful product is all about understanding the customer’s needs and building the most effective solutions in response. Created originally for software development projects, Scrum is focused on satisfying the customer by collaborating closely with the customer and, in doing so, delivering the value the customer needs.
Maximize the Return on Investment
Managing successful product development is about creating maximum product value for the customer while minimizing unnecessary delays and costs and eliminating unwanted functionality and defects. Scrum focuses the
team on the importance of value-driven prioritization of work and the relentless elimination of waste in the product
On Time, On Budget Delivery
Product value can’t be realized and customers aren’t satisfied when projects are delayed and product deliveries are postponed. Scrum allows the development team to complete high-value, high-quality work and deliver what the customer needs when the customer wants.
To earn your CSPO certificate you are required to complete the 2 day CSPO Course from an Authorized Certified Scrum Trainer. No specific work experience is required for the course, however CSM certification or some Scrum knowledge is recommended.
The CSPO exam is administered online and sent via email after attendance is recorded and reported by your Scrum Alliance Instructor. The link is sent 24-48 hours after class concludes. You have 90 day access to take the exam and 2 attempts towards passing. The exam is in multiple choice format.
