After talking to a few mentors and other professionals, I was told that Agile is a type of process improvement that is comparable to LSS. The PMI website says that it is a combination certification that encompasses different methodologies. I would love to know which is preferable to the market and to an employer?
My take is that PM Cert. is much more flexible in your options. PMP Cert is portable across many industries and applications such as IT, construction, etc. You are right, Agile is a process much like ITIL. They are frameworks that companies use to keep continuous process improvement. PMP though, is a universal method and a licensed Certification. Kind of like getting a license to drive a tractor trailer. You may have a passenger vehicle license but when you get a commercial tractor trailer license, a whole different set of possibilities are open.
