Professional Agile Leadership™ Certification

PAL I Certification Badge

Prove your Knowledge of Professional Agile Leadership

The Professional Agile Leadership™ (PAL I) certification validates that you are a leader who understands the value Agile can bring to a business and how to actively practice Agile. This certification demonstrates why leadership support of agile teams is essential to achieving organizational agility and what leaders can do to support their teams to help them achieve higher performance.

While attendance is not a prerequisite, attending a Professional Agile Leadership Essentials (PAL-E) class is highly recommended. 

PAL I includes questions from the following Focus Areas as defined in the Professional Scrum Competencies.

Unlike other Scrum certifications that are awarded for attendance in a class, earning a certification requires proof of knowledge and understanding by passing the certification test. You can take the Professional Scrum certification test whether you have attended a class or not, though each training class is a great learning experience and includes a free attempt at the associated certification.

Protecting the integrity of the certification process is very important to us. By taking a test with you agree to abide by our Standard of Conduct. You will not receive information about the specific questions that were answered correctly or incorrectly, however  you will receive a breakdown of your performance based on the Professional Scrum Competencies.
