In our digital solution projects around connectivity, infrastructures, data and IT security, agile processes and the associated Scrum.org™️ skills of our employees are indispensable! With the knowledge and experience of our certified Professional Scrum Product Owner™ (PSPO I & PSPO II) and Professional Scrum Master™ (PSM I), we realise digital solutions quickly, agilely and benefit-oriented. But what exactly do the certifications actually mean?
The Scrum.org™️ Framework - Agile Project Work
The small, fine details and improvement requests in a project are usually only noticed after the final implementation. Since the initial project scope is not defined accordingly, additional customer and user needs are added later. We avoid such delays and unsatisfactory project results.
In order to implement digitization projects accurately, but also quickly, we work according to the Scrum.org™️ framework. In this approach, solutions are judged to be very successful precisely when the benefit from the project result for the customer is as great as possible. For this purpose, a short joint exchange is planned – and not only after, but in the middle of the development process! More about project work with the framework of Scrum.org™️
The key roles: Professional Scrum Product Owner™ & Professional Scrum Master™
Our Professional Scrum Masters™ (PSM) keep an eye on the fact that the Scrum.org™ principles and practices are always followed in our internal and external projects. More about the 4 agile principles
Meanwhile, our Professional Scrum Product Owner™ (PSPO I & PSPO II) ensure that the development teams work towards the defined project goals. Simply put, PSPOs maximize the value of the project team and are the voice of the stakeholders there – so their skills are critical to project success:

The PSPO II Certification
The Professional Scrum Product Owner™ Level 2 (PSPO II) certification is one of the highest accreditations in the industry for product owners. It is recognized worldwide and helps individuals demonstrate their competence in product management using the Scrum.org™ framework. Here are some reasons why PSPO II certification is considered the best accreditation in the industry:
1. it validates advanced knowledge and skills: The PSPO II certification is designed for experienced Product Owners who want to demonstrate their advanced knowledge and skills in product management. The certification helps individuals demonstrate their ability to work with complex projects and deal with multiple stakeholders.
2. it focuses on practical application: PSPO II certification is not just about theoretical knowledge. It emphasizes practical application and encourages participants to apply Scrum practices in real-world scenarios.
3. it is recognized worldwide: The PSPO II certification is recognized worldwide and is highly valued by organizations using the Scrum framework. Certification helps individuals distinguish themselves in the job market and provides career advancement opportunities.
Our teams are always up to date with Scrum.org™️
We offer our employees regular workshops with different levels to build and deepen their knowledge of the Scrum.org™ framework. In courses lasting several days, we also prepare them for the official certifications from Scrum.org™️ – and with success, because many of our employees are now certified PSMs and PSPOs!
To become a PSPO or a PSM, a course and exam must be completed. The courses are conducted according to the internationally recognized Scrum.org™️ concept. The certifications “PSPO I” and “PSM I” reflect a good understanding of Scrum.org™ basics. A majority of our Product Owners and Scrum Masters are certified at level II, which means they already have an advanced understanding of Scrum.org™️. But even after the advanced certifications, we do not stop there!
