Business Agility

Bring out the best in people, for people.

What is business agility?

Business agility is the ability to continuously delight customers and inspire employees in the midst of emerging challenges. It is the collective agility of people that is developed from a culture of learning.

Fuel business agility with learning

Thriving agile organizations are learning organizations. They foster a culture of continuous and organization-wide learning to sustain the agility of their leaders and practitioners, who can in turn delight customers.

There is no single framework, software, or magical process that will give an organization more agility. It takes a human-centered approach to business, together with flexible teams and networks, to pave the way for better workplaces that bring out the best in people, for people. (That’s our kind of magic.)

Unlock your organization's potential with ICAgile-accredited Learning

ICAgile’s Business Agility Learning Roadmap represents:

1) the capabilities organizations need to build (i.e., Operating with Agility) and
2) the deep, transformational journeys leaders need to experience (i.e., Agility in Leadership and Enterprise Coaching) to enable the business agility journey.

Build a foundation of agile knowledge, starting with Business Agility Foundations (ICP-BAF). Then, activate leaders and practitioners in the key domains of your organization with the additional certifications represented across the Business Agility Learning Roadmap.

Which track is right for me?

Agility in Leadership includes four certifications designed to support leadership at all levels of the organization: Leading with Agility, People Development, and Adaptive Strategy, culminating in the competency-based ICAgile Certified Expert in Agility in Leadership (ICE-AL).
Operating with Agility serves leaders and practitioners in domains paramount for business agility. This track contains Lean Portfolio Management, Product Management, Adaptive Org Design, Agility in Marketing, Agility in Finance, and Agility in HR.
The Enterprise Agile Coaching track was developed for Agile Coaches who have completed the Agile Coaching track who wish to take their skills to the enterprise level find this track most appealing. Also, anyone with a strong background in change management and/or organizational design and a curiosity about agile approaches at the enterprise-level will benefit from this certification.


We believe that to achieve sustainable agility, organizations need competent agilists at every level and across all disciplines. Imagine having not only knowledgeable, but also competent agile professionals in development, testing, coaching, engineering, etc. Our goal is to help organizations build mastery to support meaningful business agility. 


The beauty of ICAgile's roadmap is that we created it with more than 60 global thought leaders. We didn't want to just create a set of certification topics. Instead, we asked a fundamental question, "What does someone need to learn to become an agile expert in a particular discipline?" We gathered agile thought leaders from around the world and facilitated sessions to unearth the answers. The group developed over 500 learning outcomes covering eight different agile disciplines. Teams from throughout the international community volunteered countless hours to build the most comprehensive set of agile learning outcomes to date. Without their passion and dedication, none of this work would be available to the community today.
The learning outcomes in our tracks are methodology-neutral. The roadmap's design intentionally focuses on starting with an agile mindset opposed to on any particular methodology or framework. This empowers every organization to leverage the roadmap and customize its agile processes and practices to meet organizational realities as they evolve. In addition, the learning outcomes are regularly reviewed and modified based on feedback from students, trainers, and the agile community, to ensure cutting-edge skills and knowledge are taught.

    "ICAgile certifications prove you can do the work because you've met a certain set of learning objectives. It means you can already do the work we are asking you to do."

    "The ICAgile learning roadmap aligns with our fundamental belief in the power of agility across all levels and disciplines of an IT organization."
