Five Agile Certifications to Earn

As the governing body for certification in Disciplined Agile, we promote a principled, Shu-ha-ri strategy via five distinct designations. We start by building a strong foundation (Shu - learn). As your knowledge deepens you progress to a stage where you can demonstrate a deeper understanding of the range of strategies available to you (Ha-reflect). Finally, once you’ve achieved a proficiency (Ri – transcend) of disciplined agile, you can extend and improve upon disciplined agile techniques by sharing your learnings with others.

Reasons for Attaining a Disciplined Agile Certification

  • Increase your knowledge. DA certification requires a comprehensive understanding of Disciplined Agile Delivery, which in turn describes how all aspects of agile principles and practices fit together in an enterprise-class environment.
  • Demonstrate your professionalism. DA certification indicates to employers your dedication to improving your knowledge and skills.
  • Advance your career. As you demonstrate your increased knowledge base and leadership, DA certification can help you attain that new position or role.
