Topic: Agile Certifications – Let's Continue Our Conversation...

The PMINJ Agile LCI will conduct our remote Agile Discussion Group (ADG) to share information about agile certifications. This is a repeat of the topic that we covered last year with updated content. We are doing this now to provide guidance on potentially the best certification that may meet your needs since you may be interested in pursuing a certification (or two) during the Summer.

Do we really need more acronyms? CSM or PSM? PSPO or CSPO? CSP or ACP? What do these mean and which path should you take to pursue agile certifications? Not interested? Maybe you should be! Perhaps you will be interviewing someone holding one or more of these or you may want to obtain a few for yourself to help you understand and work with agile teams.

During the session we will discuss what certifications you could consider through a comparison across a few tracks and how to get there. It is good to understand what they are and how they can help you since there are many to choose from.

We hope you can join us for our last remote agile discussion group of the PMINJ program year!

  • This session will be similar to the Agile Certifications session that the ADG conducted last year. Keep in mind that as time goes by and your job demands change you will probably be looking at certifications with a different lens. Our previous presentation will be updated to reflect what's trending now while including newer certifications.
  • Please join the meeting early since our Zoom license limits us to the first 100 attendees who sign-in.
Based on survey feedback from our last session (Inspect and Adapt) we will ensure that there is more time for questions and discussion throughout the presentation. We plan to formally end the presentation and discussion at 7pm but Bob and Nitin will stay on-line until 7:15pm for any additional questions.
