Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training by Marco Mulder

The training has a healthy mix of theory and practice. By using Agile exercises with powerful debriefs, the participants will internalize the theory. During the training Marco shares his own experiences in many organizations, which is highly appreciated by the participants. Participants who are Product Owner already leave with clear insights on how to improve further. Participants who are new to Scrum and/or Product Ownership are able and usually very enthusiastic to apply their learning points immediately after the training.

"Last week, I attended a fully remote Certified Scrum Product Owner training. While I did not have too many expectations towards a fully remote training session, I honestly have to say that our trainer, Marco Mulder, has done an incredibly good job in making the training as interactive as possible. By integrating a broad set of methods and tools (collaborative group works in breakout sessions, live quizzes, …) the remote training really covered all aspects I usually value at on-site trainings. Nicely done, Marco! "

"If you are planning for your online CSPO, then I wouldn't have recommended anyone other than Marco. Two interactive full days which were full of learning. He is so attentive to every detail, willing to answer all of your questions and always keeps the team engaged. Thank you, Marco!"

"I attended Marco's course on CSPO and I must say he is a fantastic trainer. Even though it was a virtual training but the assignments and other activities were planned so thoughtfully that it happen to be very interactive and interesting session and overall Marco managed the things pretty well. Thanks Marco for making 2 days of my time worth learning."

"I participated in Marco's CSPO training this week. I genuinely enjoyed the entire training, it was the best I ever participated in. The word "participate" must be stressed in comparison to other trainings, where it was often required to only sit and listen. I admired how the practical exercises perfectly illustrated the course content, it was all so very well thought through and didactical. I took a lot of inspiration with me for my own training sessions or just the next time I'll explain the principles of scrum to a group. The entire training was agile in itself - and Marco allowed me to transfer what I learned to my actual projects, because he answered all the specific participants' questions. I absolutely recommend Marco's CSPO training."

"Marco is an excellent trainer. I had the pleasure of participating in a 2-day CSPO training. He provides great insights about the Scrum framework using exceptional real-world examples, backed-up by well structured theory mixed with realistic problem-solving "games". Without doubt, it is the best course I have attended during my career. If you want to deep dive into Scrum, I highly recommend participating in one of Marco's trainings."

"Marco's 2 days course is simply the best I've attended yet, for few reasons: Marco is engaging from the first minute to the last, you won't fall asleep and you won't need coffee. He's an expert, you will learn and feel confident to apply the skills by the end of his course. His course is delivered in the most effective possible way, I won't ruin the surprise: you'll have to attend. Let's just say he walks the talk and 'applied' Scrum on improving his own course!"

"I had the opportunity to be trained by Marco during a 2-day Agile course. Marco is a wonderful trainer, he is efficient, involved and allowed all of us to incorporate our different backgrounds to the experience. Marco took the time to give me valuable career advice which I will now take forward. It is rare to meet an individual that will give you the right advise with exclusively your interest at heart."

"Marco's CSPO training material and the interactive sessions made learning and practicing application of scrum principles extremely easy and memorable. The course content is not simply academic justification of PO best practices, but instead real world examples of their pragmatic implementation. 100% recommendation!"

Christoph Janssen
"Just had a great training session with Marco on the scrum concept and in particular the role of a product owner. The class was very helpful, engaging and brought a lot of theoretical and practical insights and training. I would recommend everyone to look into participating in one of his classes or to bring him into your own company! Thanks Marco!"

Patrick Burger - Sr. Software Product Manager

"I attended a Product Owner Certification Course (Scrum Alliance) which Marco hosted as instructor. He has a lot of experience in the Agile/Scrum area and his personality and communication skills made these two days very interesting to attend. Especially he is able to 'map' the theory on actual cases / questions (daily work) of the course participants. I for sure recommend Marco when in a project or at a certain company is a need for an agile / Scrum coach."

Kevin J Vella - Head Of Customer Experience at Genting Casinos UK
Kevin J Vella
"It is amazing how Marco manages to make the role of a product owner come alive in a training course through a series of clever examples and intricate role playing games. After his two day course, I went back with many ideas to put into practice and take the product team a few notches forward. It is rare to find instructors like Marco."
