Hi everyone

I was looking for a serius affordable OKR trainning and certificarion and came across this institute.

I cant find anything about it on the web.

any thoughts?

besides, if you have any suggestions regarding OKR trainning and certification, let me know, please.

There is no way anyone can be accredited by scoring a 50% on a test in 20 minutes. I would say they don't seem very credible and are likely trying to just capture your money.  I honestly have never heard of them nor have they come up before, so I am guessing their numbers are untrue too. I suggest you stick with those recognized in the world of Scrum and creators of it in PSM and CSM.

Eric, tks, you gotta a point there.

I am not looking for any scrum recognition besides I am looking for a OKR certification.

But as I said.. your point are valid as a whole...

Does anyone know any good and recognized OKR certification ?

What is the reason behind having a specific certification for this, if I may ask?

I didn't even realize that there was such a thing as an OKR certification but I guess people will try to capitlize on anything that is hot topic. 

And I have the same question as @Sander Dur.

Just came across this post. I want to notice, that I get the feeling that it's a pseudo-institute. The owner of this insitute, Lars Hendrik Rayher, is also involved in a company called "Agile Offices GmbH". At this company, the owner of "Agile Heroes", Fabian Kaiser, was also previously involved. Furthermore Agile Heroes sells a certificate with the logo of that institute for "Accredited Jira Master Level 1". However, this certificate is not available on the website of the institute. So I get the feeling it's an institute to cell certificates for "Agile Heroes". Finally, the institute itself offers a level 2 certificate for Design Thinking, that can not be purchased on the website (is not a purchasable product).

Hey everyone! I just stumbled across this little thread and thought I'd share my experience with the institute with you guys, as I just recently passed my Design Thinking Coach exam. As far as I know, IFAAI is the official certification institute from Arie van Bennekum, one of the co-authors of the agile manifesto.

According to the description, the content seems to be "Certificate Factory", and there is no essential difference between "Certiprof", "ScrumStudy", "EXIN", "LAI","International Scrun Institute" etc.Start your online Agile Master certification and get the official IFAAI certificate AM ​​​​​​​
