Certified Scrum Product Owner


Scrum is a process framework that has been used to manage complex product development since the early 1990s. The Product Owner is responsible for maximising the value of the product and the work of the development team. Some of the work a Product Owner does includes defining the product backlog, prioritising them and making sure that development team understand the items clearly.

The Certified Scrum Product Owner course will empower you with the knowledge and tools to excel in this role. Conducted by Certified Scrum Trainer Pete Deemer, it consists of lectures modules and case-study-based exercises with ample open discussions and Q & A opportunities.

This course is not recommended for those who have already attended NICF - Business Analysis for Agile Practitioner course.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will earn 9 PDUs (PM: 9) that can be used to maintain your PMP® credential. Note that for the purpose of PDU reporting by those with PMP® credentials, the PMI REP Provider Number of ISS is “2339”.
