Learn how to create customer focused solutions with Innovel’s Product Owner certification training
Make responding to markets and better business results your new normal.
Taking Certified Scrum Product Owner® training from Innovel is fun and engaging. Our courses are highly interactive workshops where participants learn by doing, discussing, playing and debating. Innovel trainers are very highly regarded experts who have been using Scrum since 2002 and teaching it since 2006.
Over 90% of all Innovel students “definitely recommend” Innovel’s training to their colleagues. In fact our our biggest business is repeat customers getting training for others within their company.
Certified Scrum Product Owner Training by Innovel will show you how to effectively work with a Scrum team to take a product from idea to implementation. While we cover Scrum basics, this course focuses on Agile Product Management, Lean Startup, working with stakeholders, prioritization, reducing risk and maximizing business value. If you want to learn Scrum we recommend the Certified Scrum Master® Course.
We will go from business case to product backlog, using practical techniques that Product Owners can apply on their next working day. We write user stories, create two dimensional backlogs in the form of user story maps, do release planning, and deal with changes to the plan. You will learn real world examples, case studies and the unique perspectives of your fellow students as you collaborate.
The course covers more than the basics as outlined by the Scrum Alliance. Our goal is to provide you with concrete tools you can implement the day after training in your company. Our students learn how to succeed with an Agile mindset, so they can handle the many changes in directions as they arise. When you leave an Innovel Certified Scrum Product Owner course you will have a new set of tools and a more effective way to achieve product and project success wherever your career takes you.
We guarantee our Certified Scrum Product Owner® workshop will be an engaging experience that will give you the knowledge and confidence to to lead your next project or product development effort using Scrum.

The vast majority of attendees do obtain CSPO certification. There are a few reasons someone may not achieve CSPO status after a course:
- They did not meet the trainer’s expectations of attendance so they are ineligible for CSPO status.
- They did not complete the homework assigned to make up for missed course time to the trainer's expectations.
- After the training they did not follow directions in the Welcome email from the Scrum Alliance inviting them to set up a profile and accept their CSPO certificate.
