Certification - Accelerate Your Career!

  • “Why should I invest in becoming a Certified Scrum Product Owner?”

  • “Is Six Sigma Certification the same as Lean Six Sigma Certification?”

  • “What are the requirements for Agile Scrum Master Certification?”

  • “What is CSM Certified?”

  • “What are the different types of Scrum Certifications?”

  • “Can I complete Six Sigma Certification online?”

The topic of certification comes up frequently in Agile, Lean, and Six Sigma and not all organizations agree on the requirements or standards for Certification.  We believe the best way to separate training and resulting Certificates of achievement from formal Certification or “being certified” is, “Those who complete the training CAN and those achieving Certification DO”, as depicted in the following image;

Learn-Do (1).bmp

It is our opinion that “trained” means that one is well-versed in a given body of knowledge.  For example, “I completed Scrum Master training.”  Certification or being certified, however, is a confirmation of one’s ability to APPLY that body of knowledge… the “DO” of the learn-do model.  Some institutions might consider this the culminating performance.

When it comes to Lean Six Sigma and Agile Project Management, there are some (a few) organizations that will offer certification without the requirement for the “DO” element and we strongly believe that this does a disservice to the student/recipient as well as the industry as a whole.  For those seeking to accelerate careers and leverage Lean Six Sigma and Agile to open new doors of opportunity, training courses alone are not enough.  Successful application of the principles, tools, and methods acquired during training offers the evidence… the compelling story that is a confirmation of your ability to bring tremendous value to any organization in virtually any industry sector.
