    This is a very good course. It explains the material well. The cost of this course is very reasonable, affordable and worth the money for learning about the Product Owner role. The questions that I had on the material were answered by e-mails. The simulated exams are very good because they have nice detailed explanations and cover a lot of material. There is a good variety of questions included in the simulated exams. The on-line course includes much more information on the Product Owner role than in the Scrum Guide. I learned a lot from this course.

    However, some of the material does not correspond to what is available on the Scrum.Org Forums. Inconsistency in this material seems to exist in areas that are not clear in the Scrum Guide or where there are differences between material in earlier versions of the Scrum Guide and the current version. After I took the on-line course and the PSPO I Simulated Exams, I reviewed the Scrum Org Forums and found differences in some of the material. I then asked some of the same questions that I asked to the author of this Management Plaza class on Scrum Org Forums, and got different answers from some of the Professional Scrum Trainers. These questions dealt with what could change during the Sprint. The answers I got from Scrum Org was that during the Sprint the “Definition of Done” could change as long as quality goals don’t decrease and the Product Backlog Items could change as long as there is no negative impact to the Sprint Goal. Another question that I got a different answer on was that there is only one time-box for the Sprint Planning, not two separate time-boxes, as there was in the past, which is considered the correct answer on the on-line part of this course.

    In addition to discrepancies between the course material and the Scrum Org Forum there was a discrepancy between an answer on a PSPO I Simulated Exam and the PSM I Simulated Exam. The question was in regards to who supports the Scrum Master in resolving impediments. There was also no reference to Evidence-Based Management , which deals with the Key Value Areas (KVAs) of Current Value, Time to Market and Ability to Innovate and the Key Value Measures (KVMs) for each of them, in the Management Plaza materials. These may be indirectly mentioned through the questions and answers on the PSPO I Simulated exams and some of the on-line course material but not in the same way as presented on Scrum Org. I mention Evidence-Based Management because it is referenced as key material to study for the PSPO I Exam by multiple sources.

    I have not taken the PSPO I Exam due to inconsistencies and discrepancies between sources on the material. There are even inconsistencies between Scrum.Org, the Scrum Guide and the books to learn about Scrum recommended by Scrum.Org to prepare for the exam. Based on these discrepancies I couldn’t be sure how to answers questions on the exam because I wouldn’t know the right answer from the perspective of Scrum.Org’s exam. Perhaps there wouldn’t be any questions on the areas with inconsistencies or discrepancies between sources. But I did not want to take that chance. The new version of the Scrum Guide that came out in November 2017 may also create more inconsistencies between the various sources of materials.

    Question: Does this course give the credits needed for CSM in class hours?

    • Nader K. Rad

      :

      Anil, as far as I know, you must take classroom courses for the CSM certification. The alternative for those you prefer elearning or self-study is PSM.

    Excellent course –
    The training style in the videos makes Agile Scrum easy to learn and I was very confident to take the online exam after using your online Exam Simulator. I have already started using Scrum at our work.
