Since the ICP is foundational and the gateway to all other ICAgile tracks, the ICP credential has the broadest target audience. 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. Training providers may tailor course delivery for specific audiences and career levels, while still ensuring coverage of all learning objectives.
The ICP's learning objectives focus on the agile mindset, values, principles and foundational concepts. They are grounded in what it means to be agile and achieve organizational agility without specific focus on any single agile methodology or framework (i.e. Scrum, XP, DSDM, SAFe, etc.)
Upon earning this certification, the student will understand the history of agile, the importance of “being” as well as “doing” agile, key aspects of value-driven development, adaptive planning techniques, and how to cultivate collaboration with customers, within organizations and within teams. Students will also have gained the vocabulary to discuss the benefits of agile and how to avoid common pitfalls with fellow agile practitioners. In addition, accredited ICP courses focus on helping the student understand the value of continuous feedback, learning, and adaptation for products, processes, teams, and organizations.
Whole Team Training - ICP courses generally include two full days of instruction and activities.
