Last month I wrote the Quick Guide to the Basic Agile Certifications. There was a lot of interest in the two Scrum Certifications, the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and the Professional Scrum Master (PSM). But I was surprised there was also some interest in the less popular Agile Certified Practitioner certification from PMI. And I believe there are many of you out there who can achieve this certification without hardly trying.
Join us on Monday October 2 through Thursday October 5 for a fun and interactive deep dive into Agile. This is a great opportunity to get an in depth understanding of Agile frameworks and practices, to level up your skills, and to prepare for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner certification (PMI-ACP) if that is your goal.
Bewildered by the number of Agile and Scrum certifications and training courses offered today? Do you wonder what would be the best Agile certification for you? It is a question that I get asked frequently by those new to Agile and Scrum. It doesn't help that the names of the certification and the certification bodies are strikingly similar. Anyone new to Agile would be understandably confused.
Key Planning Considerations:
I recently had a participant tell me that my Agile and Scrum for Teams class was 1,000% better than he expected. Which I took as a great compliment, even though I noted the hyperbole. When pressed to explain why, he said that his previous Agile training had been horrible. Which got me wondering if I was that much better, or if the expectations were simply low.
As an Agile Trainer and Coach, I find an interesting paradox. Most people will state that they already know all about Agile. And if asked, most organizations will say that they are already using Agile, even if it is A.I.N.O. (Agile in Name Only). Or they will describe what they are doing as "agilish". I am pretty sure that "agilish" in this context means that they aren't following Agile Values and Principles.
