Scaling the Product Owner

Welcome to the Scrum@Scale online module to help you prepare for the in-person scrum@scale training. Scrum@Scale is a framework within which networks of Scrum teams operating consistently with the Scrum Guide can address complex problems, while creatively delivering products of the highest possible value. These “products” may be hardware, software, complex integrated systems, processes, services, etc., depending upon the domain of the Scrum teams. This module will take 15-20 minutes to complete.

About This Course

Scrum@Scale enables the transformation of every division, department, and service in any organization and can efficiently coordinate an unlimited number of Scrum teams through its use of a “scale-free” architecture. Scrum@Scale naturally extends the core Scrum framework and was created by Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum. .

As a Certified Scrum@Scale Practitioner (CSaSP), you will learn how to apply fundamental Scrum and Lean product development skills to scale Scrum from one to many teams across any sized initiative. Scrum@Scale courses are interactive and teach how to scale Scrum through a combination of lectures, hands-on exercises, and real-world case studies.


Scrum@Scale requires a strong foundation as a Scrum Product Owner or as a Scrum Master.
