Is PAL-1 Good start for Agile Transformation
Its been some time since, I have posted.
I am starting a new initative and would like to know if the PAL-1 certification would be a good start point ?
Objective is to enable a company to move to agile adoption across all Business Units and Functional units.
What course would you recommend for an Agile transformation manager.
I have many years of SCRUM / Kanban practices and also PSM1 certified.
Has the problem of transforming someone else's company been delegated on to you?
Ian Mitchell , no this our organization that needs to adopt agile process
Is it your company? Do you own it, meaning it is your company to change, and it does not belong to someone else?
its the compnay I work for
If others own the company, what you seem to be facing right now is the abdication of professional agile leadership. Those owners are trying to delegate the job of transforming their company on to someone else, and you absorb the risk. This will surely be recognized, and unless the situation changes, it will impact how the transformation attempt is perceived. No accreditation on your part is likely to improve that dynamic or create the requisite sense of urgency for change to happen.
You've already got your PSM certification. I'd suggest that the PAL accreditation would be of significant value if senior leadership set out to obtain it.
@Ian Mitchell, I have already indicated that the Accountability and transformation responsiblity's rest with the Stakeholders and Functional Unit heads. MY Role would be to a help lead them on the journey. I have enrolled for the PAL-1 certifcation and brushing up the assessment questions. Hopefully I can get this one going. Thanks for your feedback
I am not sure how certification will help you with you work in a company where you are already hired. Certificates are mainly marketing tools for a job seekers. If you have been already trusted with a job, you may have whole parade of scrum.org certificates, or none of them, it would not help or hinder your job at all.
