Want to know the simple steps in becoming a PO? Start with goal definition and the why-question of becoming a PO. Then move on to research job roles, scope, payouts, recruiting companies and so on. The next step is doing the training and certification to get skill-equipped through experiential learning.

They help you earn the 14-16 PDUs/SEUs required to take the professional exams. Remember certification alone is insufficient. You will need to think and act according to the Scrum framework and breathe the Scrum Agile principles. The 2-day CSPO training trains you well in being a full-time dedicated PO. The course also addresses the needs of gaining practical knowledge on real-time industrial projects and honing the PO’s abilities and knowledge of Agile principles and Scrum values.

PO Requirements

The PO’s main role is to lead from the front in strategy and systemic iterations. The PO has complete clarity on the needs, strategy and requirements of each marketable product and has to collaborate with clients and the Scrum team in daily meets. The goal is to produce more sellable products and improve productivity and effectively lead the enterprise to the Lean-Agile state of project management. 

Scrum Master Certification Exam

No essential qualifications or experience is needed for the course, and you can start from scratch. It helps to have basic knowledge of Lean, Agile and Scrum by having worked on an Agile team. 

The Scrum Alliance’s Certified Scrum Product Owner® Certification is an endorsement of your undertaking of continuous perfection in your Agile sojourn and makes you well suited to take on the Product Owner role and manage lucrative projects. To earn this certification, you are required to take the training at any of the Scrum Alliance’s training partnersThis 2-day course enables you to face your role challenges and responsibilities while preparing you for the certification through doing and being in practical situations that are real-time and industry-relevant.

At the end of this course and online exams, you are awarded the CSPO Certification.

Certified Product Owner Salary

According to the CPO at Nokia earns Rs 2,200,000/annum, while at SAP it is Rs 1,900,000/annum and at Appster the salary on offer is Rs 1,530,000/- currently. The scope for certified POs and certified Agile professionals is unlikely to meet the supply demanded as long as the industry wheels keep churning. 

That’s the present scenario. Having researched briefly on the topic get to the next stage and enrol on your route to becoming an effective PO.
