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.
Yet often organizations that use Agile product development techniques use traditional management approaches, expecting leaders to set firm 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 which is 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 their strategic goals.
In the Professional Agile Leadership™ – Evidence-Based Management (PAL-EBM) one day* course, participants learn what EBM is and how to apply it through hands-on, activity-based learning.
Through a series of exercises participants learn techniques that support a more agile mindset:
To be confirmed – please revisit this page for updates on public course dates and times for the PAL-EBM course. Alternatively, enquire about private training classes for your leadership and executive teams.
PAL-EBM is for professionals in leadership roles (including executives, managers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, coaches, and consultants) who:
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.
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.
John is an incredibly helpful instructor. I completed the Agile Leadership course with his assistance, and his explanations were always very clear and emphasized the big picture thinking of Agile. The work in the class was very dynamic, looking at scenarios and working in small groups or pairs to discuss our ideas. I also appreciated his real world examples from his extensive work experience and knowledge base. John also has a wonderful sense of humor, an ideal trait in a teacher. Thank you!
Well-structured and balanced course between theory and practice. Course full of exercises to put into practice what you are learning. You take home with you useful techniques that you can immediately apply in your work the day after. Many thanks to John Coleman for what he shared with me during the course and the follow-ups!
Inspirational, insightful and engaging John thank you for your support guiding over 100 of our Agile Leaders through PSM1. The feedback from the groups was phenomenal with people sharing how much they liked your depth of knowledge, facilitation and support - Thank you! Could not recommend John highly enough - fabulous experience.
John is an excellent trainer and an extremely knowledgeable mentor. I was able to gain so much from his teaching during the 16 hours of Professional Kanban training course. If anyone is looking for a Kanban trainer who not only can deliver the course material, but also share so much from his personal journey as an Agile practitioner, look no further, John is your guy.
