Certified Scrum Product Owner (Cspo) - Boston
The Hyatt Regency BostonMarch 04, 2015 8:30 AM
1 Avenue de Lafayette
Boston, MA 02111
Course Description 66% of software features are rarely or never used. Making the right product decisions, building the right features, and incorporating feedback is the difference between building products that satisfy customers and building products that delight and engage them. As one of the largest and fastest-growing agile frameworks, Scrum is a simple, yet powerful way to manage product requirements, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. One of the key roles in Scrum is that of Product Owner, the person tasked with setting and communicating the product vision, the one who ultimately determines what gets built. The BigVisible Certified Scrum Product Owner course is a 2-day, hands-on workshop, filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed with Scrum. Our Certified Scrum Trainers are coaches first, which means that long after your course is over, we have the experience and expertise to provide ongoing support and assist you in implementing what you've learned. Our CSPO course offers a detailed examination of the Scrum project lifecycle and the product owner role, going beyond the basic definitions to focus on how to achieve success as a product owner with Scrum. Course delivery is varied for optimal learning, with activities ranging from case study analyses and in-depth lectures, to hands-on exercises and interactive games. Each person will leave this course empowered with practical, applicable advice and skills they can apply to their own projects and teams. Agenda & Learning Objectives Our CSPO course covers a broad range of topics, including: How Scrum helps organizations cope with change, budget constraints, quality issues, and moreThe product owner role and how it differs from traditional roles, such as business analystWays to manage the product backlog and write effective user storiesPragmatic practices for managing and communicating the scope and vision of a productHow to partner effectively with a development teamStrategies for delivering faster by taking advantage of the iterative, incremental nature of ScrumCourses typically run from 8:30am to 5:00pm, though the exact hours may vary. Coffee in the morning, lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided and are included in the course price. These informal breaks are outstanding opportunities to visit and network with your trainer and classmates. Intended Audience This course is appropriate for stakeholders, business analysts, managers, product owners, and anyone who wants to understand what agile and Scrum are all about from the product-owner perspective. Though no agile experience is required, some experience managing projects is helpful. Course Benefits Upon completion of the course, students will be eligible for the following benefits: Eligibility for the CSPOAbility to apply for 1 PDU per contact hour with the Project Management InstituteSatisfaction of two-thirds of the 21 required training contact hours for the PMI-ACP® (Agile Certified Practitioner) as well as a strong foundation for the associated certifying examWhy a BigVisible Course?

Born to Tunisian parents in Düsseldorf, Loco Dice has a penchant for international sound. He created his start early on, inspired by the hip hop of the early '90s, eventually breaking his way into huge festivals such as Germany's Time Warp festival and Ibiza's Cocoon. It wasn't until 2002, with his studio partnership with Martin Buttrich, where his tracks such as "Menina Brasiliera" and "Seeing Through The Shadows" really showcased his international talent. Over the years Loco Dice has cautiously switched from Hip Hop to Techno, still managing to maintain himself as a force in nightlife scene
