Design and Deliver awesome Products
Scrum is a lightweight framework that enables teams and organisations to design, develop, and deliver better products faster, while adapting to external changes.
Scrum originated in Software Development and IT, where it was used to deliver high quality and complex software products. Today, Scrum is adapted across multiple business functions (operations, security, marketing, sales, HR, etc.) making it an ideal enabler for agile transformation initiatives.
The Scrum Product Owner Role
Within a Scrum team, the Product Owner serves as the link between the Scrum Team and the Business or Customer, and his primary focus is to communicate the product vision and strategy while ensuring it remains aligned to business goals.
The Product Owner achieves these by helping everyone understand the vision and strategy, the product’s value proposition and the business goals it will achieve, and by directing, prioritising, and collecting feedback.
Why should you get PCSPO I certified?
Although Scrum is lightweight and easy to understand, it is very hard to master. Today, 81% of organisations use Scrum (66%) or a Scrum hybrid (15%) as they have embraced agility, but only 16% report that their agile maturity is above average. This creates an urgency for up- and re-skilling, to match the need.
Becoming a PCSPO I certified professional will help you prove your skills and stand out from the crowd.
