Introduction to ICAgile Certifications

The International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) was established by a group of community experts to “change the way people do agile by helping them become agile.” Their foundation lies on the promotion of the agile mindset instead of a specific agile methodology or framework to allow for true flexibility in an organization’s application of agile practices.  With an agile mindset, organizations can better prepare themselves for the uncertainty of today’s competition and achieve a sustainable, agile way of working.

ICAgile offers certification based on their two unique learning roadmaps: Business Agility Learning Roadmap and  Agile Delivery Learning Roadmap. Both roadmaps share a similar structure in their core, learning track design, and certification hierarchy. Each learning track is formed around a discipline and has related Professional level certifications and an Expert certification. Unlike most industry certifications, all ICAgile achievements are received by the verification of knowledge through an in-class or panel assessment instead of testing.

The Business Agility Roadmap structures its certifications into: 

  • Core: Business Agility Foundations
  • 3 Learning Tracks: Agility in Leadership, Operating with Agility and Enterprise Coaching for Agility

The Agile Delivery Roadmap structures its certifications into:

  • Core: Agile Fundamentals
  • 6 Learning Tracks: Agile Coaching, Agile Engineering, Agile Testing, Business Agility, Delivery Management, DevOps, Enterprise Agile Coaching, and Product Ownership
