The Three-Day PSPO-A Training plus Liberating Structures for Scrum

The three-day extended PSPO-A training adds a third day that focuses on the application of Liberating Structures to Scrum Events such as the Sprint Planning or the Sprint Review.

Created by Keith McCandless and Henri Lipmanowicz, Liberating Structures cover a set of easy to learn, yet powerful ways to collaborate as a team—even as a (very) large team by Scrum standards—, overcoming traditional communications approaches like presentations, managed discussions, or another disorganized brainstorming at which the loudest participants tend to prevail. Liberating Structures are well suited to improve the level of engagement among participants of Scrum events, thus stimulating the kind of outcomes that are necessary to create learning organizations.

The Professional Scrum Product Owner (Advanced) training will provide not just the PSPO-A class manual and the PSPO II certification code. (Including an additional complimentary code within the first 14 days after the completion of the class if the trainee does not achieve 85% the first time.)
