Scrum Product Owner Certified Overview

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.

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.
