There are quite a few Agile HR programs out there and I had researched almost all of them before enrolling for the APF Certified PeopleOps Coach program. The APF CPSM program is very different in the sense that it is very comprehensive and based on a sound framework, the APF (Agile PeopleOps Framework), that has been continually evolving based on feedback from the community. It provides a good way to structure the thought process around the application of lean and agile practices to the people operations.
I also found the program to cover a breadth of PeopleOps practices with very useful and engaging discussions about how different global organizations have transformed their people operations. And lastly, absolutely all other Agile HR programs grant certification based only on attendance. APF programs require participants to not only take an exam, but to also demonstrate practical understanding of the Agile PeopleOps Framework by requiring participants to complete weekly quizzes, and to develop a PeopleOps Transformation Roadmap and present it to the instructor.
APF programs are a must-do for all HR professionals, agile practitioners, consultants and coaches!!
