Description: ICAgile Certified Professional in Agile Fundamentals (ICP)
This ICAgile accredited course examines the roles and responsibilities of team members working on Agile projects, explores the specific practices which are used on Agile projects, explains the theory and concepts behind the Agile approach and prepares team members to be immediately productive working in an Agile environment.
Agilocity’s Agile Fundamentals is a proven, world-class course: As at late 2014, it has run over 250 times in a range of countries around the world.
During three dynamic days participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of what to expect on an Agile project and the skills to be effective on one.
The course covers the philosophy, values, principles and background of the Agile methodology. It explains the flow, the processes and the environment of an Agile project, giving participants an overall understanding of the Agile world and the tools and techniques used in delivering value. It presents a structure for defining value and ensuring the project delivers the right product at the right time for the right customer. All participants receive a pack of Agile Sizing Cards.
This course is not tied to a particular tool.
- Team members starting out in Agile projects
- Project managers entering the Agile environment
- Managers of teams involved in Agile development
- Consultants looking for a solid grounding in Agile software development
Lecturing is kept to the minimum necessary, most of the learning is achieved through applying theÂ practices and techniques in group exercises and a case study.
Assessing the Acquisition of Knowledge
ICAgile requires instructors to assess their students in class prior to granting certification. ICAgile’s course accreditation process ensures that the training provider’s assessment method is valid and commensurate with intended learning outcomes. Assessments are not limited to written exams; rather, instructors can use a variety of means to assess knowledge acquisition. ICAgile highly encourages instructors to include their assessment process both in course descriptions, and during a discussion with the students on the first day of class. Students need to know that demonstration of learning, not simply attendance, is necessary for certification, and that it is ultimately the instructor’s decision to grant the certification. ICAgile requires instructors to explain their reasoning when denying a certification, and to let students know what they will need to do or change to obtain the credential.
