Scrum.org Launches Professional Agile Leadership
July 21, 2021

Scrum.org announced its new Professional Agile Leadership – Evidence-Based Management (PAL-EBM) training course.

Scrum.org and its founder Ken Schwaber, co-creator of Scrum, introduced the Evidence-Based Management™ (EBM) framework and Guide in 2014, which is an Agile approach to help leaders guide their teams toward continuously improving customer outcomes, organizational capabilities, leading to positive business results. PAL-EBM is a hands-on, activity-based training course where participants in leadership roles (including executives, managers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, coaches, and consultants) learn what EBM is and how to apply it.

"Ken Schwaber first introduced Evidence Based Management 7 years ago. Since its creation, the Scrum community has been using it and incrementally improving it," said Patricia Kong, Product Owner - Enterprise Agility, Scrum.org. "Many organizations continue to adopt agile but measure it with traditional, non-agile approaches. This class provides attendees with clear, practical advice on how to move to an agile approach to measurement."

In the class, participants learn what EBM is and how to apply it. Through a series of exercises, participants learn techniques that support an agile mindset:

- Drive operational improvements by using four Key Value Areas (Unrealized Value, Current Value, Time to Market, and the Ability to Innovate) as lenses for evidence-based decision making

- Create a cultural environment using clear goals, appropriate measures and trust to enable self-management and autonomy

- Shift the conversation away from measuring progress purely through team performance metrics, toward a focus on customer-centricity and improving customer outcomes

- Use empiricism to set and achieve strategic goals, managing the unknown and complexity through experimentation and by adapting goals along the way
