Course Overview

Professional Agile Leadership with Evidence-Based Management (PAL-EBM)ย training experience uses a unique blend ofย self-pacedย learning,ย live classroomย hands-on activity-based exercises, andย community-based aftercare. With markets and customer needs constantly changing, organizations need information and evidence that helps them adapt quickly to new challenges and opportunities so that they can deliver greater value and achieve true business agility.The course goes beyond the topics explored in the Professional Agile Leadership Essentials ย &ย Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) classes and deepens participantsโ€™ understanding by introducing the four key-value areas and a number of suggested key-value metrics that can 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 organizationโ€™s performance and achieve its strategic goals.Students should already have at least one year of product development experience and practical knowledge of Scrum to participate in and benefit from these exercises. Having previously taken the PAL class is recommended but not required.

  • Session 1: Goals, Measures, & Behaviors
  • Session 2: Key-value Areas & Key-value Metrics

Each session includes STARTUP activities before and WRAPUP activities to be completed after each session. Before, during, and after the class, students can interact with other students and thought leaders in our Lean-Agile Community.The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognised Professional Agile Leadership – Evidence-Based Management (PAL-EBM) certification exam.

Our next available class is on 8 - 29 Mar, 2024 deliverd in-person over 4 weekly half-days for ~£600

Learning Experience Options

Our primary method of increasing EBM knowledge is a deliberate developmental experience divided into learning blocks, each with four hours of live virtual classroom training with a qualified trainer-practitioner complemented with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities provided for self-study. Live sessions are delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural, with Mighty Networks provides the self-study portal.

Every participant on every option receives:

  • Two attempts at the industry-recognised Scrum.org Assessments.
  • A 30m learning review, generally delivered between assessment attempts.
  • A 60m one-on-one coaching session

At a minimum, we deliver all of our training in four hour sessions or block of live practitioner-instructor lead experiances, complimented by offline self-paced content. Depending on the training course We can deliver as:

  • Traditional Learning Experience - four intensive consecutive days or four non-consecutive days over two weeks
  • Flipped Learning Experiance - a flipped learning experiance with live classroom sessions as well as offline self-paced learning.
  • Immersive Learning Experiance - an immersive learning experiance with weekly assignements that are debriefed at the next session.
  • Guided Learning Experiance - an guided journey where a trainer-pratitionar cureates and provides feedback on self-paced learnings.
  • Extended Learning Experiance - Traditional, FLipped, or Immersive compimented by additonal integrated workshops, coaching, and consulting as needed.
Please contact us for details.

  • Understand the essential aspects of goals and measures and how they influence behaviors and an organizationโ€™s culture and values
  • Help organizations embrace empiricism as a leadership approach. Using experimentation to incrementally steer toward the organizationโ€™s goals
  • An appreciation for how goals and trust act together to enable autonomy, transparency, and value delivery
  • Correlate market leadership and sustainability to curiosity, adaptation, and empiricism
  • Understand how to use EBM and its KVAs to focus measurements on improving market value and operational capabilities

PAL-EBM is for professionals in leadership roles (including executives, managers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, coaches, and consultants) who:

  • Are responsible for the success of their product delivery programs or Agile transformations and are seeking a means to measure and demonstrate that success
  • Are looking for a framework that identifies improvement areas that increase their business agility, including their time to pivot to meet new challenges and deliver customer value
  • Want to help their organization embrace empiricism and experimentation to find solutions for complex problems (where more is unknown than known or the situation changes rapidly)
  • Want to articulate goals and measures in a way that fosters self-management and empower their teams to understand the connection between their work and the value their organization is providing and customer is receiving
  • Want to be more effective in how they measure success by using Agile measures rather than traditional measurement models (including the use of velocity) Attendees should have read the Evidence-

Based Management Guide, have an understanding of Agile practices and a desire to move away from traditional, (plan-driven,) ways of working and measurement models, however, they do not need specific experience with Scrum. Our Professional Agile Leadership- Essentials course helps leaders understand how to best support their Agile teams and is ideal preparation for PAL-EBM, but is not a prerequisite. Our Professional Scrum Product Owner and Professional Scrum Product Owner – Advanced courses teach Product Owners how to deliver value and can be a great complement to the PAL-EBM course

Course attendees do not need experience or knowledge of Scrum, though a connection to the various aspects of Scrum (Product Goal, Sprint Goal, empiricism) is made. Ideally, the attendees will have familiarity with Agile principles and are proponents of using Agile methods at their organization. For the best outcome of the class I recommended that you read:

All participants completing this course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Agile Leadership – Evidence Based Management (PAL-EBM) assessment. The industry-recognized PAL-EBM certification requires a minimum passing score of 85%. PAL-EBM class participants who attempt the PAL-EBM assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.

Why naked Agility with Martin Hinshelwood?

naked Agility Limited is a professional company, registered in Scotland, that offers training, coaching, mentoring, and facilitation to help people and teams evolve, integrate, and continuously improve.

We recognise the positive impact that a happy AND motivated workforce, that has purpose, has on client experience. We help change mindsets towards a people-first culture where everyone encourages others to learn and grow. The resulting divergent thinking leads to many different ideas and opportunities for the success of the organisation.

Our Core beliefs

Courage | Commitment | Focus | Respect | Openness

We believe that every organisation deserves usable software on a regular cadence that delivers the highest possible value. Organisations are complex systems. They evolve over time and the current ways of working are a result of this evolution. We help an entire organization focus on value delivery and agree to new norms.

By reducing bureaucracy and command and control management, we believe that everyone will take responsibility for achieving the organisationโ€™s goals. Our tailored blend of training, coaching and mentoring, gives people the opportunity to learn and develop, making the organisation, and its clients, successful.

What We Do

On an evolution towards agility and becoming a great organisation, it is your people that will determine your success. We help the entire organisation agree on methods, goals and cultural values that will enable you to adopt a product-first approach.

We have learned from the success and failure of different organisations and their experiences of introducing an agile mindset. We want to help you transition to a world within which you can delight your clients.
