About Agile Fundamentals with Scrum and Kanban (ICP)
To succeed with agile approaches, teams, and organizations should focus first on "being agile" as a foundation for success in "doing agile." ICAgile's fundamental learning outcomes delve into key concepts such as adaptive planning, value-driven development, team collaboration, and frequent feedback for continuous improvement. They also cover the history of the agile movement, the Agile Manifesto, the Agile Principles, and some widely applied frameworks and practices. Course participants come away with a solid understanding of core concepts as they prepare to embark on their agile journey.
About Business Agility Foundations (ICP-BAF)
The aim of this workshop is not to simply review dozens of practices and buzzwords that will be well-known (to some participants). Instead, the goal is to take a higher perspective and achieve a foundational understanding of how all these tools fit into the larger picture of the innovative, evolving company as a family of business models with individual business life cycles. It is the perfect starting point for organizations aiming to achieve a coherent approach to a startup and scaleup culture within a corporate environment, with an equal emphasis on both disruptive and sustaining innovation.
You will see that the basic unit for innovation is the strategic business model. You will understand how each business model evolves from exploration and effectiveness to exploitation and efficiency. And you will learn how managers, leaders, designers, and developers need to organize their work differently to create an organization that can reinvent itself continuously and that can scale tremendously.
Agile Fundamentals with Scrum and Kanban (ICP) helps to:
  • Become acquainted with the Agile approach not as a set of practices but as a way of thinking
  • Get an idea of the approach through actual examples of Agile implementation

  • How can we have something like "a startup culture" in our company?
