Event Summary

As a Certified Scrum Product Owner®, you’ve already experienced the excitement of learning about your stakeholders’ problems and then, with your teams, making those problems go away. There’s nothing more satisfying than helping people do their work more effectively. However, it’s time to take your skills to the next level.

In Artisan Agility’s Advanced CSPO, you’ll learn how to identify poor product ownership and poor product management, identify and emulate strong product ownership, perform a market assessment, apply emotional intelligence to work with those you depend on, and validate product assumptions.

You’ll also improve your customer interviewing skills, feature prioritization and roadmap planning skills, group facilitation skills, goal setting and planning skills, and product backlog management skills.

Our training offers so much more!!! Through a combination of hands-on exercises and real-world stories, you will leave class ready to put your new and improved skills to work to improve both your career and your organization’s bottom line.

What Our Students Have to Say


“Jim Schiel was the best instructor that I have experienced…EVER! Even in a fully online course, Jim was 1000% engaging, spending the majority of the course with the presentation minimized and talking to us face-to-face. His presence and experience are unparalleled…”

“Jim is a dynamic, personable, and energetic trainer. The depth of his knowledge and personal career experiences are interwoven into the curriculum bringing it alive, which gets the class fully engaged in their own learning. I highly recommend any class taught by Jim!”

“Jim is a great instructor, keeps his students very active and engaged. Jim made sure everyone thoroughly understood the concepts of Scrum.”

“I’d highly recommend Agile/Scrum professional development and organizational transformation coaching from Jim. I really appreciated the fact that he focused on us becoming great agile practitioners rather than getting us to pass a test.”

“I recently took Jim’s CSM class along with two of my colleagues to become Certified Scrum Masters. The two-day course was informative and real-world practical. As a trainer, Jim is enthusiastic and insightful. My colleagues and I just took our CSM exams and passed with flying colors thanks to Jim’s instruction.”

Registration Information
