Training is useful for
Senior managers new to agile and adaptive management styles and project or mid-level managers in agile organizations ready to apply their agile management skills to broader contexts. Experienced Scrum Masters, Project Managers, Program Managers, and Agile Coaches who are passionate about transforming the way organizations deliver value will also find this certification rewarding.
Training helps to
  • dealing with change and uncertainty is the new normal. The era of knowledge work is much more conducive to an inspect and adapt approach as opposed to command and control approach;
  • the best solutions happen when teams are empowered to self-organize and unleash their creativity and brilliance. Shared ownership and accountability can lead to astonishing results;
  • the fundamental paradigm shift to a value-driven vs. plan-driven approach is paramount for managing agile delivery. Those who can identify, deliver, and measure value are positioned to succeed;
  • transitioning to Agile isn't easy. Agile Delivery Managers face unique challenges when advocating an agile mindset at program, portfolio, and enterprise levels. This track provides tools to overcome these challenges.
