Scrum Product Owner Certified (SPOC)


Scrum, created by Schwaber and Sutherland (c. 1995), is a popular Agile framework for developing and sustaining complex products.  It offers a collection of roles, events, artefacts and rules, providing a way to assess the efficiency of your practices so that you can improve.

Scrum was formulated as a faster, more flexible way to deliver the greatest value in the least amount of time.

The Scrum Product Owner Certified (SPOC) course focuses on the perspective, responsibilities, tools and techniques employed by the Product Owner.   It provides an interactive hands-on learning experience through a mix of highly interactive facilitator-led discussions, group activities, games and product development simulation.
