Let’s picture for a second the following scenario

Right in front of you lies the opportunity of a lifetime to create a product that can blow your users’ minds off. However, the outlook does not look too promising.

Your stakeholders have opposing interests, so you will undoubtedly have to facilitate challenging meetings to help stakeholders make the best decisions without pulling each other's hair out/throwing things at each other.

On the other hand, you have the developers. They talk about technical debt and an infinite amount of engineering techniques that guarantee a robust product. However, they talk so technically that it sounds like a foreign language to you.

At the same time, your most important responsibility is none of those mentioned above; instead, your primary focus should be the end-user. You are the one that represents the customer/client/user. You must put their interests above all else and make sure that the outcome of all the work to be done indeed solves end-users’ most profound issues.

On the way, you will have to identify typical cognitive biases, conduct consumer research, almost to the point of being able to read your customers’ minds, develop hypotheses, and put into practice different techniques to validate them.

And the journey does not end there. If everything goes as expected, you are likely to lead a product at scale, where multiple teams work simultaneously. Which will require an advanced degree of knowledge about organizational structures and coordination of multiple agile teams.

Not even the best Product Owners can do this instinctively. They need to learn how to manage stakeholders, interact with developers, facilitate meetings, empathize with users, use design thinking approaches, develop and validate hypotheses, and lead large-scale product development.

These new skills are waiting for you in the Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO) program.

Sign up today and start boosting your career right away.

PROGRAM

WEEK:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

1. CORE COMPETENCIES & STAKEHOLDERS

In our first meeting, we will analyze the Product Owner profile as it relates to the competencies of Agile Product Management. I will focus on the relationship with stakeholders and how to manage their interests. I will teach you techniques that will help you facilitate meetings so that you can help stakeholders negotiate opposing interests and make better decisions.

2. INTERACTIONS WITH DEVELOPERS

In our second meeting, we will learn how to interact with Developers. I will show the different practical techniques that you must know and how to manage product development on scale where you encounter multiple teams.

3. CUSTOMER RESEARCH

We all agree that you cannot start designing a product or service without first understanding what your users really want, right? Therefore, in our fourth meeting, we are going to delve into customer research practices so that you can design a product that your customers love.

4. PRODUCT DISCOVERY

Steve Jobs once said 'Some people say: Give customers what they want. However, this is not my approach. My job is to find out what customers are going to want before they know it... People do not know what they want until you show it to them.' During our fifth meeting, I will introduce you to Product Discovery techniques that will help you identify the appropriate product to develop.

5. HYPOTHESIS AND VALIDATED LEARNING

You need to doubt your assumptions and view your proposals as hypotheses, especially in the development of new products. This discipline is plagued with cognitive biases and if you are not aware of them, they can play very dirty tricks on you. You are not leading projects but rather, experiments and in this meeting, I will teach you how to do those validations.

6. DEFINING VALUE AND OUTCOMEE

One of the biggest challenges when switching from product management to agile product management is to shift the focus from delivering features to delivering value. But, what does value mean? How can you measure it? Why is this approach change so critical? All of this will be covered in our sixth meeting.

7. PURPOSE AND STRATEGY

Creating and evolving a product requires an immense effort for everyone involved. All that effort without a North and motivation ends up stressing everyone. Establishing a purpose (or a vision) should be the starting point of any product initiative but it is overlooked often. In this meeting, I will teach you how to establish a purpose and develop a strategic map that stems from that vision.

8. ADVANCED PRODUCT BACKLOG

At the end of the course, we will see different techniques for organizing/ordering/prioritizing, and refining the Product Backlog. This will be the 'cherry on top' and your last step towards certification.
