Roman’s Scrum Certified Product Owner course was extremely well run and provided a great deal of value to me even though I had already been working as a Product Owner for a couple of years. The level of expertise Roman has was invaluable in both improving my Scrum skills and inspiring myself and the other people taking the course. I highly recommend it.

Roman teaches a very engaging CSPO course with a good mix of interaction and presentation. He is obviously very experienced and knowledgeable–a real authority. I’ve enjoyed and benefitted from the course a lot.
− Yvonne Anderson, Managing Director
Roman’s Product Owner course is probably one of the most valuable courses that I’ve ever attended. The unique and dynamic structure of the course really aided my own learning and allowed me to apply my previous knowledge in a practical way right from the beginning. I cannot commend Roman highly enough and his courses are a “must-attend” for anyone wanting to improve their product owner knowledge and skills.
