Today, the Agile industry tends to reserve the “expert” label for people who gain exposure in the community by writing great blogs, speaking at conferences and publishing agile books. While this is certainly a significant contribution to the community, we believe that there are great agilists within organizations who live agile every day and make exceptional contributions on the ground, where it matters most.In light of this, ICAgile seeks to provide the industry with two things: (1) a Learning Roadmap for people to acquire knowledge and build capability in agile approaches, and (2) a means of recognizing expertise through real-world experience and demonstration of capability. ICAgile offers ICAgile Certified Expert (ICE) level certifications for various disciplines across the Learning Roadmap (e.g., Agile Coaching, Agile Testing, etc.)The ICAgile Certified Expert in Agile Coaching (ICE-AC) designation is granted to professionals who successfully complete an Accredited Expert Program (AEP) by demonstrating competency in the disciplines of agile coaching and facilitation. These rigorous programs — offered by leaders in the domain of Agile Coaching — guide qualified candidates on a journey to build competence over time alongside a cohort of peers. Vetted for quality, each Accredited Expert Program allows candidates to sharpen competencies in a real-world setting with ongoing feedback from facilitators and fellow candidates.
Are you ready to dramatically advance your skilfulness and impact as an Agile Coach, Mentor, Trainer, and Facilitator? This program takes what you learnt in the Agile Coaching and Facilitating courses and goes much deeper into your application of these skills, tools, and techniques. You will explore these topics thoroughly and apply these at your place of work within the teams you coach and get help when you find your own, your teams, or your organisation’s blockers in moving towards high performance.
You don’t become an ICAgile Expert in Agile Coaching after a quickfire 3-day class but you can after a 6-month intense learning experience focusing on real-world application and peer support.This programme builds on your knowledge and experience and helps you reflect on where you want to go next in your agile coaching journey.
Join TeamCatapult for a journey of personal growth and skill development towards coaching agile teams. In this 8-month program you will gain clarity, growth, and proficiency and increase the demand for your services. You will join a group of like-minded peers who will walk with you on your journey to coaching competency, supporting you, and holding you accountable to your own growth.
