Digital badges from Scaled Agile give SAFe-certified professionals a way to display their verified skills on a variety of social and web-enabled platforms.
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) May 16, 2017
Scaled Agile, Inc. (SAI), provider of SAFe®, the world’s leading framework for enterprise agility, today announced the Scaled Agile Professional Certification Program digital badging initiative. This new feature will help SAFe-certified professionals connect with the best opportunities to use their skills and experience, and give employers the ability to quickly validate an employee’s knowledge and skills.
Scaled Agile is teaming with Acclaim, a leader in digital professional recognition, to roll out digital badging incrementally starting this month with select SAFe certifications. Nearly 50,000 members of the SAFe community—those certified on SAFe 4.0—are eligible for a badge. Those certified on SAFe 3.0 or earlier will have the option to re-certify on SAFe 4.0 to earn eligibility for digital badging.
“Digital badges are quickly becoming the new standard for displaying achievements online. The Acclaim digital badging platform—used by companies like IBM, Oracle, and Microsoft—provides both employers and peers with evidence of what SAFe-certified professionals have done to earn a credential and the skills associated with it,” says Chris James, President and Chief Operating Officer. “People work hard to gain SAFe certification and we want to help them capitalize on the career opportunities facilitated by digital badging.”
“Digital badges from Scaled Agile give SAFe-certified professionals a way to display their verified skills on a variety of social and web-enabled platforms,” says Susan Farago, Certification Program Manager. “Because certification badges are issued to the individual, they have full control when, where, how, and with whom to share their valued skills. The Acclaim platform also provides skills-related analytics so badge holders can track which of their skills are in demand. This provides a powerful way to personally manage professional skills development and growth.”
