Product Ownership is hard! If you're working as a product owner in an Agile team, you already know this is the toughest and most critical role in a successful product organization. If you're a UX practitioner, senior engineer, or marketing professional in your organization, it may seem like adopting Scrum or Agile development has stripped away your ability to contribute as a product decision maker.

If you're adopting an Agile approach, your organization may be struggling with bloated backlogs that aren't well understood, stressful planning meetings that last too long and fail to get at details needed to deliver predictably, a nagging feeling that you're building the wrong thing, a lack of time to work with customers and users, chronically late delivery, and frustrated business stakeholders...There's hope!

The Passionate Product Ownership workshop takes on the bad assumptions and bad practices that often emerge from overly simplistic approaches to agile development and Scrum. Jeff Patton will leverage his past product leadership experience, and years of coaching product teams to teach an effective product ownership strategy.

  • Agile, Scrum, & Product Ownership
  • Agile origins and values

      Hi Bharath,

      Janice here; I support Jeff so am jumping in to help.  :-)

      Thanks for your interest in attending Jeff's workshop.  Yes, this is a Scrum Alliance (scrumalliance.org) certified workshop.  You will achieve your CSPO certification once you attend this 2-day course and then "claim" your certification from the email that Scrum Alliance will send you.

      I hope this helps and that Jeff will see you in class!

      Meanwhile, please do reach out if we can help with anything else.

      Thanks again and all the best,

          Hi Bharath - We/Jeff are not associated with Scrum.org so unfortunately have no knowledge of what their requirements are.  Apologies that we cannot be of more help on this question...
