1 Agile Certification Options Primer Presented by: Tom McGraw, CSM VP of Public Sales

2 Presentation Agenda What is Agile High Level Look High level Model for Agile and the flavors that drive implementations Certification versus Certificate programs Elements of a quality certification program Authorizing body creditability Application requirements Exam depth and breath Recertification requirements ISO standards What employers look for from certifications What employees look for from certifications Currently available Agile Certifications Scrum: including Scrum Alliance and Scrum.org Agile: including PMI ACP, IC Agile Lean: including Six sigma certifications Accredited Kanban Training: Lean Kanban University Questions

3 Agile in a Nutshell Transformational way of work Built a foundation of values and principles No 1 inch thick rule book From those values and principles come practices Like daily stand up, retrospective, story points, etc. Practices are organized into flavors Agile flavor model on upcoming slide Highly extendable very similar to open source Scrum is to Agile, as Red Hat is to Linux

4 Agile Core Values We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more. agilemanifesto.org

5 Agile Flavors

6 Certificate Certificate vs. Certification Accredited Over a period of time Role specific Focus on the training Certification May or may not be ISO compliant Tied to product, role or process Focus on experience and knowledge Usually sizable supply chain

7 Examples Certificates St. Louis University Executive Certificate in Agile Development Villanova s Master Certificate in IS/IT Project Management George Washington s Master s Certificate in Project Management Certifications Certified Scrum Master PMI ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner) PMP (Project Management Professionals) CCNA (Certified Cisco Network Associate) VMWare, Microsoft, Net App, other vendor certifications

8 Elements of a High Quality Certification Respect of authorizing body and the thought leader impact on the certification objectives Pre certification requirements Training Experience Previous certifications Exam Third party hosted and managed Security/ integrity of questions Recertification Continuing education requirement Re certification requirement

9 Employers value of Certifications First filter in hiring Can reduce hiring process time Reduces risk of failed hire Employee compensation Great non cash benefit Also used as part of individual development plans Increase rate potential for consultants Certificates increase billable hours for staff Meeting regulatory requirements

10 Employees value of Certifications Recognition / resume builder Quantifies skills and experience Compensation increase Most likely comes with next employer not current Prestige within industry Increase awareness at industry events Very helpful if going independent
