ICAgile Certified Professional – Agile Fundamentals (ICP)

Course Overview

Agile Fundamentals is a non-dogmatic course that immerses students into an agile mindset. “Being agile” is the foundation for the team and organizational success in “doing agile”. Students will learn and experience the values, principles, and foundational concepts, and achieve a solid step on their agile journey. Students will be able to apply the learnings to their work environment, and any future training in agile practices and techniques. The collaborative learning environment offers opportunities to learn from interactions with co-attendees, apply newly learned perspectives, and hear first-hand examples of agile enablement from instructors. All that while having a lot of fun!


Who should attend?

This is a foundation certificate and has the broadest target audience: members of the team, leaders, coaches, HR, delivery, and project managers, and anyone who wants to understand the true meaning of an agile way of work without being tied to any particular framework or method from the start. The content is equally applicable to software development teams as it is to teams engaged in any form of business change, as well as for people who wish to learn an agile mindset and boos their CV. 


Prerequisites & pre-reading guidelines

There are no prerequisites. Prior experience working in an agile environment will be an advantage.
