The Professional Agile Leadership - Essentials course is designed for attendees who have a solid grasp of Agile practices, have read the Evidence-Based Management Guide, and desire to shift from traditional approaches to working and measurement.

As a result, it serves as excellent preparation for PAL-EBM, although it is not mandatory. Additionally, our Professional Scrum Product Owner courses offer guidance for delivering value and can complement the PAL-EBM course, enabling leaders to enhance their Agile skills and knowledge.
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.
Upon completion, all participants will receive a password from the Professional Agile Leadership - Evidence-Based Management (PAL-EBM) assessment. The PAL-EBM certification requires a minimum passing score of 85%. In addition, participants will be given a second attempt at no extra cost. This ensures that participants can improve their performance and attain the PAL-EBM certification without incurring additional expenses.
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 its strategic goals.
