Description

This course awards the Agile Certified Professional certification from ICAgile. ICAgile is the International Consortium for Agile. ICAgile is a certification and accreditation body, who collaborate with worldwide agile thought leaders to develop learning programs that lead people to agile mastery. Our partner Dragons Arm is accreditd by ICAgile.

Learn why almost 30% of standard projects fail compared to just 9% for similar sized projects where Agile is accepted. Why four times as many projects are successful when using Agile compared with using standard project methodology (Standish Group, the study of more than 10,000 projects 2011- 2015). More importantly, learn how you can make that difference in your teams.

This course is delivered in conjunction with Dragons Arm

Outcomes

This is a fun intense two days of learning. There is no exam at the end, only your active participation and full attendance is required.

The course consists of presentations, discussions, active group exercises, and games. You will have an opportunity to discuss both hypothetical situations and your own experiences.

The feedback we receive shows that, while the learning and the certifications are important, it is these discussions, group exercises, and the combined experiences of people in different situations that give the extra value to those attending. These experiences cannot be gained from reading or online courses.

Who Should Attend

This ICP course is intended for any team members and those working with Agile teams including the builders/developers, testers, designers, business analysts and, project managers..

The ICP is also of value to people not working on projects. People have gained value from attending this course even though they have nothing to do with either software, product development, or even projects. Our trainer has assisted organisations to move towards a full Agile working model and mindset that increases value and throughput and become more transparent and able to cope with change. This transparency and the way that course attendees work allows the team and the organisation to appreciate the work undertaken, monitor (and have a way to handle) disruptions, and showcase their achievements.

It is appropriate for those new to Agile, and for practitioners who recognize the need to focus on “being” agile in addition to “doing” agile. Suitable for entire teams, managers involved in Agile teams, entire organisations undergoing change, and for Consultants looking to gain understanding, marketable skills, and the certified qualification to show it.
