Professional Agile Leadership - Evidence Based Management

Live Virtual Class, December 15, 2023

Class Overview



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

  • Use empiricism to set and achieve strategic goals, managing the unknown and complexity through experimentation and by adapting goals along the way
  • Create a cultural environment using clear goals, appropriate measures and trust to enable self-management and autonomy
  • Shift the conversation away from measuring progress purely through team performance metrics, toward a focus on customer-centricity and improving customer outcomes
  • Drive operational improvements by using four Key Value Areas (Unrealized Value, Current Value, Time to Market, and the Ability to Innovate) as lenses for evidence-based decision-making
