Certified Agile Training

We offer the ICAgile ® Certified Professional training class to greatly improve your agile adoption and education.

This class is impactful and practical. Each participant can earn the ICAgile ® certified Professional Designation.

ICAgile believes that agile is not a process, methodology, or framework; it is a mindset that welcomes uncertainty, embraces challenges, empowers individuals, and views failure as a learning opportunity. Adopting an agile mindset unleashes the brilliance of people and teams, which enables rapid discovery and faster innovation. This is a game changer in today’s competitive and uncertain world.

The course not only conveys knowledge and skills but also teaches the approach and techniques that significantly increase the efficiency of using the Agile framework.

Why should you attend this ICAGile fundamentals training?

Well, contrary to other agile training that focus on a single framework such as Scrum or Kanban, this training focuses on the mindset of agility as well as the practical applications therein.

In order to succeed with agile approaches, teams and organizations should focus first on “being agile” as a foundation for success in “doing agile.” ICAgile’s fundamentals learning outcomes delve into key concepts such as adaptive planning, value-driven development, team collaboration and frequent feedback for continuous improvement. They also cover the history of the agile movement, the Agile Manifesto, the Agile Principles, and some widely applied frameworks and practices. Course participants come away with a solid understanding of core concepts as they prepare to embark on their agile journey.
