Professional Agile Leadership - Evidence-Based Management

In this Professional Agile Leadership - Evidence-Based Management course, you will learn about Evidence-Based Management (EBM) from Scrum.org - an Agile approach to help you guide your teams toward continuously improving customer outcomes, organizational capabilities, and business results. This highly interactive class is delivered virtually in two four-hour sessions. After the class, you will get a passcode to take the PAL I assessment.

Description

PAL-EBM Logo

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 great value and achieve true business agility. Yet often organizations that use Agile product development techniques use traditional management approaches, expecting leaders to set form long-term goals and manage progress toward them with dashboards of static metrics.

That is why Scrum.org created the Evidence-Based Management (EBM) framework - an Agile approach to 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 strategic goals.

In the Professional Agile Leadership – Evidence-Based Management (PAL-EBM) course, you will learn what EBM is and how to apply it through hands-on, activity-based learning. Through a series of exercises, you learn techniques that support a more agile mindset.

This highly interactive class is delivered virtually over two half-day sessions, which our students love! Our half-day sessions allow you to balance the course with your work while enabling high focus and deep learning during class time.

As an added benefit of attending this class from Unstuck Careers, you get a one-hour professional coaching session after the class. You can use this session for PAL-EBM assessment preparation, coaching to apply what you have learned, or whatever else you need!
