Receive your ICAgile Certified Professional Certification while learning Agile fundamentals from a company that practices what they preach.
“Thank you for a great two day training experience. I loved all the group activities! Overall, great class!”
This ICAgile Certified Professional (ICP) certification course follows learning outcomes that focus on the Agile mindset, values, principles and foundational concepts. They are grounded in what it means to "be agile while doing agile" and achieve organizational agility without specific focus on any single agile methodology or framework (i.e. Scrum, Kanban, XP, DSDM, SAFe, etc.)
Upon earning this certification, the course participants will understand the history of the agile movement, the distinctions among Agile values, principles, and practices, key aspects of value-driven development, adaptive planning techniques, and how to cultivate collaboration with customers, within organizations and within teams. Paricipants will also have gained the vocabulary to discuss the benefits of agile approaches and how to avoid common pitfalls with fellow agile practitioners. In addition, accredited ICP courses focus on helping course participants understand the value of continuous feedback, learning, and adaptation for products, processes, teams, and organizations.
“We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it”. The Manifesto for Agile Software Development grew from the frustrations of real-life software development leaders who discovered that traditional waterfall methods limited them and resulted in low-quality software. In 2001, these leaders gathered together to define a new philosophy for approaching software development. This philosophy places primary value on the people involved in the development of software, daily collaboration with customers, measuring progress through frequent delivery of working software, and the creation of lightweight planning structures that allow the customer to respond to change. Methodologies and frameworks like Scrum, eXtreme Programming, Kanban, DevOps, and Continuous Delivery are implementations that adhere to the values and principles espoused in the Agile Manifesto. The Agile community continues to refine these methodologies and the technical practices that accompany them.
In this course, participants will gain an understanding of the latest Agile methods and practices, and how those practices adhere to the principles of the Manifesto. Organizations that embrace Agile are able to regain control of their development environments, embracing change for their competitive advantage, and delivering value to their customers more quickly.
