Preferable to have passed PSPO I but not essential if you have PSM I or a really good knowledge of Scrum
A background in project management or software development is useful


Boost your CV with an advanced Product Owner qualification, the Professional Product Owner II (PSPO II).Many people take PSPO I, but you can become one of the few with the more advanced PSPO II on your CV.My unofficial course will prepare you for this assessment. Learn how Product Owners actually maximize value with a much deeper knowledge of what it is to be a Professional Product Owner. Do you want to take your Scrum Product Owner knowledge to the next level?Great, then this course is for you.This course will cover all the topics you need to know about for the PSPO II certification. Firstly I explain many advanced concepts such as the project management vacuum, the product mindset and the experimentation loop. We look at the Key Value Areas and the Key Value metrics in depth, explaining what they are and how to calculate them. We cover:Business StrategyHow to budget in AgileThe Product Vision/GoalHow to ensure Product ValueProduct Backlog ManagementForecasting and Release PlanningStakeholder management and CustomersProduct Backlog Management And more.I also provide you with many exam-style questions reflecting the topics and questions you will likely get in the actual PSPO II assessment. I go over these questions in depth explaining the answers so you can fully grasp the knowledge and be fully prepared to take the PSPO II certification from Scrum. I even provide you with 2 practice tests and links to many other free PSPO II tests to give you lots of practice before taking the real thing.I  cover the 5 different levels of being a Product Owner. With this knowledge, you will identify where you currently are and what you need to do to become an even better Product Owner and progress to the next stage. We look at the Product Owner stances meaning, what things good Product Owners do. I also cover some of the bad but common stances that you should avoid. I’ll also take you through organizational design and building an Agile culture, portfolio planning and business strategy.If you are an entrepreneur with an idea, or currently a Product Owner or just aspiring to be one, this course will teach you how to manage risk ensuring you produce a Product your customers really want. We will look at the concept of a Minimal Viable Product, experimenting, and paper prototyping so you don’t waste time and money.I even cover the tricky situation of budgeting in Scrum and which contract types can work with iterative agile development. Have you ever finished a project and the item developed was over budget, delayed and once launched it didn’t get as many users as you hoped? If this sounds familiar, then this course will help.My course will teach you how to keep your focus on the Product and deliver value via regular releases.
