Course Overview

Leaders and managers are facing increasing challenges as technologies, markets, and customers' needs constantly change. Organizations that use Agile product development techniques will often still employ traditional management approaches, expecting leaders to set firm long-term goals and manage progress toward them with dashboards of static metrics.

After the class, you will get a passcode to take the PAL-EBM assessment. After passing the assessment, you will gain the industry-recognized PAL-EBM certification, which will never expire.

This highly interactive class is delivered virtually over two half-day sessions, which our students love! Our half-day sessions allow you to balance the course with your work, while enabling high focus and deep learning during class time.

More Information

Language: English

With markets and customer needs constantly changing, organizations need information and evidence that helps them adapt quickly to new challenges and opportunities to deliver greater value and achieve true business agility. Yet often, organizations that use Agile product development techniques use traditional management approaches, expecting leaders to set firm long-term goals and manage progress toward them with dashboards of static metrics.

That is why Scrum.org created Evidence-Based Management (EBM) - an Agile approach to help leaders guide their teams toward continuously improving customer outcomes, organizational capabilities, and business results. EBM focuses on customer value and intentional experimentation to systematically improve an organization’s performance and achieve strategic goals.

In the Professional Agile Leadership – Evidence-Based Management (PAL-EBM) course, participants learn what EBM is and apply it through hands-on, activity-based learning. Through a series of exercises, participants learn techniques that support a more agile mindset.
