Scaled Agile, Inc., provider of SAFe®, the world’s leading framework for enterprise agility, today announced that company certification team members have been invited to join the Agile Development Task Force of the IT Certification Council (ITCC). The ITCC is a council of IT industry leaders focused on promoting IT certifications and committed to growing professional certifications, while recognizing the need for a qualified workforce to support the world’s technology needs.
“Joining the Agile Development Task Force speaks to Scaled Agile’s dedication to ensuring that our certification program continues to lead through constant improvement,” said Chris James, President and Chief Operating Officer, Scaled Agile. “We believe that not only can we contribute to testing and certification around Agile, but we can also contribute our expertise in using Agile methods for exam development on a global level.”
As Agile software development practices advance to address today’s ever-changing software demands, the Agile Development Task Force helps ensure that tests and certifications are reliable, valid, and fair. Members of Scaled Agile’s certification program team joined the Task Force to share their experience, promote the value of IT certification, ensure that hard-earned credentials are protected, and help define policies for certification.
“As Agile becomes more important for our enterprise members responding to digital disruption, the ability for certification to match the progression of developments in Agile practices is essential. Companies must be able to quickly assess candidates and employees as well as ensure that their workforce has the most current skill sets,” said Kristin Gibson, ITCC President. “Scaled Agile brings extensive experience and expertise in Agile software development training and certification to the IT Certification Council.”
Scaled Agile is the certifying body of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®). Its Professional Certification Program provides a valid, reliable, and consistent method of assessing SAFe skills, knowledge, and mindset.
