Course Details

Professional Agile Leadership with Evidence-Based Management (PAL-EBM) training experience uses a unique blend of self-paced learning, live classroom hands-on activity-based exercises, and 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  & Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) classes and deepens participants’ 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 organization’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.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the essential aspects of goals and measures and how they influence behaviors and an organization’s culture and values
  • Help organizations embrace empiricism as a leadership approach. Using experimentation to incrementally steer toward the organization’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
Who should attend?

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 Prerequisites

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:

Assessments & Certification

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.

Flipped Learning Experience

Flipped Learning Experience

Flipped learning is an alternative format that moves some or all of the learning of theory away from the classroom, and reflecting and practising is done in the class (hence the name "Flipped Learning").

Benefits of flipped learning

  • Consuming content in smaller iterations helps learning stick
  • Multiple reflection cycles make the practical application of learning more impactful
  • Variations of learning environment cater better for personal learning styles
  • Continued access to learning materials

Flipped Learning Experience Overview

This class comes with 8 hours of live virtual classroom experience. The course content is divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities that are provided for self-study complemented by 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural. These live interactive workshops create a dynamic and interactive environment where we dive into the core concepts of EBM through group activities, interactions, and sharing experiences, all with the guidance of an expert Professional Scrum Trainer.

Obtaining new knowledge through self-study materials along with having an in-depth, rich engagement in a class allows students to enjoy learning that sticks. Students will complete the course ready to take the globally recognised Evidence Based Management I certification exam which is included in the course fee.

Student will leave this course with an application for Agile Leadership.

Prerequisites

  • Computer - Your computer will need to be fast enough to run both Microsoft Teams and Mural. We recommend 2 monitors so that you can see everyone and the work easily.
  • Webcam - Please consider your staging and presence; what others see when you are on video. Try to avoid backlighting that renders you in shadow, the up-nostril, the baldie, or the half-head. 80% of human communication comes from body language and other visual queues. Consider your camera angles and try to have a view that is as close to what you would expect in person across a table.
  • Internet - We recommend a strong internet to support high fidelity video both from you and with us.

Supporting people with disabilities

We do our best to support people with disabilities. Please ask us about what we can do. Closed Captioning - For persons who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, live captions allow to see what others are saying. Class Recording - A meeting recording can be helpful for people with cognitive difficulties, for example. You can go through the recording at your own pace as well as go back to double-check anything you might have missed.
