Becoming a certified agile marketer gives you the relevant skills to keep up with the new world of marketing.


You know you need to keep your skills relevant, and agile marketing isn't just a fad---it's a totally different way to work that focuses on customer-centric campaigns that can be delivered in just a few weeks.

Why Agile Marketing?


More than 60 percent of Marketing Departments plan to implement agile marketing this year. To stay relevant as a marketer, it's time to learn agile marketing.


Agile marketers are able to:


  • Create valuable campaigns that reach customers in one-to-two weeks (not months or years).

  • Make informed business decisions made from actual customer feedback (not from whoever is screaming the loudest).

  • Thrive in a culture of innovation (without it, most companies won't survive).



"Even though I've been practicing agile for a long time, I learned so much in this class! It was so refreshing to have a class that's just for marketers using marketing language!"

-Stephanie, Health Partners

Agilify Coaching & Training

At Agilify Coaching & Training, we’ve all worked in traditional waterfall organizations where handoffs, sign-offs and other “offs” get in the way of producing really cool, innovative campaigns.


In 2012, founder Stacey Ackerman began experimenting with agile for her advertising agency clients and saw first-hand how the collaboration, structure and mindset changes really paid off! In no time at all work was getting out the door faster, the relationship with the agency and its client was better and quality improved.


In 2014, Agilify Coaching & Training launched and set out on its mission to help companies find a better way to work.
