Iterative and incremental development requires a steady stream of highest-value Agile requirements which are elaborated just-in-time and thus remain fresh and relevant. Agile software development puts both control and responsibility for success squarely in the hands of the "Product Owner". The challenge becomes how to provide the constant evaluation of value, the constant interaction with the delivery team, and the constant determination off whether requirements are, indeed, done. The best Product Owners harness the Agile feedback loops to constantly improve the value the software organization is delivering. Whether the "product" is for sale in the marketplace, for internal consumption, or custom software built on spec, the Agile product organization must be able to plan for success.
Upon completion of the course and a post-course online evaluation, participants are registered as Certified Scrum Product Owners (CSPOs). Registration includes a two-year membership in the Scrum Alliance, where valuable Scrum Product Owner material and information are available.
