Agile Product Ownership

The ‘Agile Product Ownership’ modules teach candidates the role, responsibilities, and general traits of a product owner that affect their day-to-day activities. In doing so, you will find out how the differences between product owners and product managers condition the kinds of tasks they carry out within companies. You’ll also learn the twelve main principles that dictate an agile business environment as well as how product owners embody agile principles and values in the roles and responsibilities that they carry out within their respective organizations.


Business Model & Validation Framework

‘Business Model & Validation Framework’ is a compound section that serves to help candidates gain key insight into the inner workings of four of the most common business models associated with product management. In doing so, you will compare and contrast the peculiarities of the most common business models and how they each impact product development as well as how to synthesize your product and business ideas into powerful and concise elevator pitches.


Scrum & Kanban

‘Scrum & Kanban’ are two fundamental topics that are fully examined in this course. The Product Manager HQ Product Owner Certification Program breaks down the differences between Kanban and Scrum frameworks that every serious product owner needs to be aware of and also teaches you the best situations in which product owners should leverage a Kanban-centered managerial approach as opposed to Scrum.


Capstone Project

With the capstone project, you will use the knowledge you’ve acquired throughout the course to complete your own product ownership project. In doing so, you will complete the steps required within each PO sprint as well as document the frameworks and approaches used to deal with each specific managerial activity you carry out.

"As someone who really related to this module, I found it very enjoyable. Similar feedback to the previous module, I am not sure exactly the stress on the PO to action things from this module, but I still loved learning about the different validation options."

Product Manager HQ is an independent product management community and certification institution. With a community of over 7,000+ product management professionals, Product Manager HQ boasts some of the best PM experts in the world. PMHQ offers world-class Product Owner Certification courses that support the development and growth of professionals within the product industry. Highlighted by major publications such as Forbes, Product Hunt, Huffington Post, AlphaUX, and Mattermark, among others, PMHQ also stands out as one of the top PM communities around the globe. Some of our sponsors include Facebook, TechCrunch, Hired, and more.
Product owner certifications are credentials given to individuals who successfully complete a product owner course and pass the certification exam. These types of courses tend to cover concepts such as product ownership, how to engage with stakeholders, how to administer product development, and how to launch products.
According to Glassdoor, the average product owner salary in the United States is $100,757, with the lowest and highest salaries being $70,421 and $144,161 respectively. However, a product owner's actual professional salary will differ based on factors such as education, certifications, additional skills, years of experience, and the hiring company. Product owners with certificates, such as the ones offered by PMHQ, usually have a greater chance to reach or exceed the national average salary.
While the PMHQ Product Owner Certification Course does provide you with a comprehensive set of resources to take your career to the next level, candidates can go a step further by complementing it with additional courses in the field. A good choice is our PMHQ Technical Product Manager Certification Course. This internationally recognized online program dives deep into the technical aspect of product development so you can foster better working relationships with technical teams. This course is ideal for candidates looking to transition into more technical roles within product management.
Once you complete the course and receive the certification, you will be given a unique URL that leads to a PMHQ verification source. You can share this link with current or future employers, the Linkedin community, team members, or any other concerned party.
Our Product Owner Certification was developed to be the best resource for professionals wanting to become a product owner. With over 90+ lectures, 10+ hours of content that includes everything from product vision to project management, 5+ downloadable templates, and exclusive interviews. By the time you complete this course, you'll have gained fundamental knowledge of what it's like to be in a scrum development role representing the business and user community.
Some institutions that offer certifications require that you keep earning credits to renew your certification every two years if you want to keep it valid. Unlike those programs, the certification provided by the PMHQ Product Owner Course is valid for an entire lifetime.
How does lifetime access sound? As mentioned before, we are 100% committed to adding even more bonus content (we love all things product and enjoy adding content!) as well as bonus interviews with awesome product leaders. After enrolling, you will have FREE LIFETIME ACCESS to all of it for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
