Why product owner?

According to Indeed.com, there are almost 7,000 open postings for Product Owners or closely related jobs as of August 2020.

Even with today’s economic uncertainty, many companies understand that they need a highly capable person reacting quickly and leading the way for their teams to provide the best products and services possible.

Job growth for the Product Owner role across all industries is expected to grow about 11% per year between 2018-2028.

Anyone with a bachelor’s degree or required experience within a technical field, alongside a Product Owner certification, will have a strong resume to apply to one of these jobs today.

Note that the base pay described is a national average that includes both entry-level and senior-level positions.

Take it from us - having a Product Owner certification will set you apart from other applicants that haven't put in the time or effort.

 

Human resources managers, the ones that are sifting through the resumes, know that finding this certification is a great way to quickly narrow down the field.

 

If you apply without one, you risk being thrown into the trash before you've even been considered!

The Product Owner fills a unique position within a Scrum Team that allows them to display creativity along with their technical skills or experience.

 

The best Product Owners have the ability to tell great stories about what their customers or users want from their product or service.

 

If you specialize in getting inside the heads of your customers, you need to be creating and sharing those stories with a Scrum Team.

While many Product Owners are involved with technical teams, there is not a great need for a PO to be extremely technical.

 

In fact, a lack of technical expertise can sometimes be an advantage for Product Owners because they won't approach a situation with bias or presuppositions.

 

Instead, you'll approach the situation with the most important mindset - the customer's.

Any organization that is going through or has gone through an Agile transformation has empowered, self-organizing teams in need of vision and direction from a capable Product Owner.

 

With no shortage of applications, an aspiring Product Owner can choose to participate in a wide variety of projects within nearly every industry.

Why choose scrum?

According to Indeed.com, there are over 5,000 open postings for Scrum Masters or closely related jobs as of August 2020.

This indicates that even during an economic slowdown, many businesses understand the value of using Scrum to increase their efficiency and survive.

Of companies that have chosen to implement an Agile management system, 82% are still early adopters or growing their adoption.

This means the job potential is just getting started!

Note that the base pay described is a national average that includes both entry-level and senior-level positions.

If you are seeking a role as a Scrum Master, having a certification listed on your resume is a mandatory requirement to get a call back from your application.

 

Even if you aren't applying for a Scrum Master role, having this certification on your resume can indicate that you have a more versatile or T-shaped skill set within an Agile organization.

According to the recent 'State of Scrum Master Salary' report, this role is experiencing a strong positive salary trend.

In 2017, about 26% of surveyed Scrum Masters made between $50,000-$75,000.

The next year, this percentage dropped to 21% but the number of Scrum Masters making $100,000-$125,000 increased from 14% to 18%.

National average Scrum Master salaries reported by hiring organizations:

 

  • ZipRecruiter - $118,353
  • Payscale - $91,032

In 2017, 30% of Scrum Masters were female and salaries were rising faster for women in this job role than men.

Gaining a Scrum Master certification provides you with a highly marketable and versatile skill.

 

Because Scrum training is useful within any organization or industry that has adopted Agile methodologies, you will be able to better navigate and set yourself apart from other applicants if you choose to look for a new job or seek other opportunities within your current company.
