Earning the Agile Certified Product Manager and Product Owner credential demonstrates that you understand both the strategic and the tactical functions of Agile. Displaying the certification credential on your LinkedIn profile, email signature and hanging in your office showcases that you stand out and have deep knowledge of the profession.
