FAQ

What is JoinAgile Competency Testing Portal?

This Service is designed for Professional Recruiters and Hiring Companies who want to ensure that their shortlisted candidates for Agile and Lean roles are as good as their Clients or Business requires. This especially applies to Senior Agile positions, which are much harder to fill with quality candidates.

By Senior Agile People for our dear Recruiters, with Love! :)Agile Project Management, Agile Coaching, Enterprise Transformations, Management 3.0, and Sustainable Development are complex matters that a non-specialist Recruiter or HR person would not be equipped to navigate through quickly enough to short-list the right job candidates without external assistance.

A lot of companies (usually larger corporate ones) admit being frustrated with low(er) quality candidates that are sent to them by the external Recruitment Agencies. Even having some higher skilled Agile personnel of their own, not much can be seen or gauged from reviewing forwarded Professional Resumes. A lot of candidates slip through to the Interview process - or even get hired! - just to then later reveal a much lower level of Lean and Agile knowledge and practical skills than the job requires.

This ultimately results in a major waste of everyone's time and money. It also often reflects on how the hiring company perceives professional level of the Recruitment Agency they are dealing with - if they keep sourcing candidates that clearly go through their initial filter, but are all being discarded by the Client. This doesn't help build a good Business Relationship...

Our System is created to address this exact problem - much more accurate and deeper Lean-Agile skills assessment, prepared by the people with years of experience in Agile Transformation, Management, Training and Coaching capacity.

How reliable is this Test?

No exam or Online Test should be taken as a 100% reliable source of truth and advice on whether to hire someone or not.

We built this Testing System however to gauge what your recruitment eye usually can not.

It is one of the best Agile Skills Tests around, but you still should cross-check your observations of the Candidate.The depth and breadth of Candidate's Agile and Lean Knowledge and practical Skills (primarily tested by the ability of your Candidates to recognize common and familiar situations presented to them during our Test), which is very hard or virtually impossible to estimate if you are not a Senior Agile specialist with years of experience, donating substantial amount of their time to filter through the influx of freshly received professional Resumes...

Our Test was developed and fine-tuned over a long time, going through iterations of internal testing, involving Recruitment professionals from Australia, and fellow Agile Coaches, Agile Project and Delivery Managers, Trainers.

Having said all of the above, we believe that this is one of the hardest, most complex and relevant Tests of Lean and Agile knowledge on the market, created by the real people who have spent years in this industry and know what questions to ask, and how.

This hand-crafted custom platform is built with the basic functionality and accessibility in mind, but we are constantly improving it, to keep it relevant to the modern job market and demand. We also seek feedback from our registered Users, as our primary goal is to help them make more educated hiring decisions in regards to new Lean-Agile Job Candidates and Applicants.

 
Is there an explanation Video?

This video is available on our Registration page, but if you haven't watched it already - now might be a good time! It should tell you most of what you need to know about this Skills Testing Service.



 
What does Non-Accredited Certification mean?

JoinAgile Training is not accredited as an official certification authority in Australia or other countries at the moment of updating this FAQ.

So the value of our certification is exclusively in recognition of the creator(s) professional achievements and name in the industry, also being supported by the community of senior and veriafiable professionals - Coaches, Trainers, Technologists.

Our focus is to provide value by creating the most relevant and sometimes hard competency tests available on demand, and offer them as validation of your professional worth compared to those who haven't passed our tests, or who never bothered to obtain an up-to-date certification like ours, still relying on the good old PMP, CSM, PSM and others.

More and more recruiters and hiring companies realise that the value of an up-to-date professional confirmation of your skills and knowledge is a lot higher than an outdated piece of paper you've received 5-10 years ago as a default result of attending some training course the contents of which you can barely remember anymore...
