As documented by Srinath V 

I always strive to improve my skills to remain relevant and valuable to my organization. Upgrading myself according to technological advancements is one aspect of this. I wanted to join the product owner role to accomplish more challenging tasks and increase my worth and get promotions.

My Journey

I started my career with TCS, and later I shifted to Cognizant. Here I was a part of the Business Development Group. After working at Cognizant for four years, I felt the need to change my domain to a Product Owner role. For this, I decided to pursue CSPO certification from Simplilearn to gain knowledge on the Product Owner profile and the Agile concepts. Eventually, I got an offer for the PO’e position at Cognizant, which helped me gain recognition.

The Challenges I was Facing

I loved working as a business analyst at Cognizant. All the projects were interesting, and the pay was also good. However, I always felt something was missing. At the same time, product management kept attracting me. Therefore, I wanted to learn more about working in this domain. The best way to shift to this area was to earn a professional certification so I could demonstrate the skills and earn the trust of my seniors in Cognizant. Therefore, I decided to upskill myself with the CSPO offered by Simplilearn.

The instructors of this course explained every topic and its principles very clearly, and their guidance helped me understand what are the responsibilities and roles of a product manager. This was possible because they knew what challenges a product manager had to face and accordingly provided tried and tested solutions.

The Impact of Simplilearn Certification

Before getting CSPO certification, I was working as a Senior Business Analyst at cognizant. However, once I earned this certificate and informed my seniors about it, they offered me the position of product manager. This helped me get into a domain that I always wanted to work in. not just this, I even got a salary increment of 5%. This way earning the CSPO professional certificate proved to be fruitful to me in every manner. Today I feel very happy and fulfilled executing my everyday task working in this position.
