Certified Scrum Product Owner Training with Michigan Technology Services
Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training, as well as other Agile and Scrum courses, through a partnership with the only Scrum Alliance authorized Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) based in Michigan, Chet Hendrickson. Chet was the first signatory of the Agile Manifesto and is a globally recognized Scrum Trainer.
Our training takes place at our location in the Farmington Hills/Novi area, 20 miles outside of Detroit, or at your location anywhere around the world. Our Agile workshops and Agile coaching sessions can also be offered virtually, reducing your need to travel.
While many CST’s fly into metro Detroit to deliver a class, and then leave, we live here and support the local Agile community. We continue to sponsor regional Agile conferences and local Agile and Scrum meetups. We have strong ties to Agile companies in the metro Detroit area. We have successfully run this course for multiple teams in the Great Lakes area.
What is Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training?
Scrum is a very useful agile framework for completing complex projects.
This intensive two-day course will prepare you to take on the Product Owner role and is taught by a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer. We’ll cover the Scrum framework but more importantly, what it means to function as the Product Owner, or Customer, for a Scrum team. You will learn about managing stakeholders, creating and refining the Product Backlog, emerging detail with Product Backlog Items and User Stories including Acceptance Criteria and the Definition of Done.
You will participate in exercises, in-depth discussion, case studies and techniques to help illustrate practices and principles. After completing the course, you will earn the Certified Scrum Product Owner credential with the Scrum Alliance. You will also receive a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, an organization that provides valuable materials and resources exclusively to CSPOs.
