In today’s Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA) environment, business agility is more and more critical for success. The tools that served us well in the past don’t necessarily still apply. Change is constant, disruption is an expectation, and innovation is a competitive advantage.

Who Should Attend
Anyone interested in the paradigm shifts necessary to enable organizational agility in today’s innovative business climate will find the Business Agility Foundations course compelling. Although this is a generalist certification and an entry point to several ICAgile tracks, it is not intended to be a direct substitution for the ICAgile Certified Professional credential. Those already holding the ICP are likely to find this course compelling, especially if they are on a journey towards business agility outside of a software development context.
