Organizational benefits of a Master's Certificate in Agile Management (MCAM)
Like all other hyper-growth trends in the IT industry, the adoption of Agile is not immune to potential misunderstandings and misconceptions. Besides relevant tooling and technology, Agile predominantly entails a cultural shift towards a new mindset, behaviors, a new organization, and a new way of working.
Agile Coaches and Agile Leaders with MCAM qualification within organizations make remarkable contributions within their organizations in terms of advocating and demonstrating benefits of Agile, helping management and stakeholders with preparing for the associated change as a result of Agile adoption, educating management and stakeholders with culture and structural changes necessary as a result of agile adoption, laying out the road-map for agile transformation, and tracking the sustained transition and transformation to Agile.
Agile Coaches and Agile Leaders with a Master’s Certificate in Agile Management (MCAM) can earn between $125/Hour to $250/Hour ($237,500 to $475,000 annually) if they work on a contract basis. For full time employees, earnings between $135,000 and $300,000 per year with benefits is prevalent within the US. Demand for these Agile Leaders is expected to rise much faster than other IT roles and even other Coaching roles. Experience, training and certifications, location, and industry are several factors that would impact expected earnings of Agile Coaches.
