Certification and Agile People Membership

Following successful completion of the online programme modules participants will be asked to submit a project proposal based on (1) their understanding of the AgileHR principles and practices and (2) how they will be applied in practice in their specific work arena.

This submission will then be reviewed, and once accepted, participants will awarded full AgileHR certification (ICP-AHR) with the ICAgile certification body and will also be welcomed into the Agile People network, a global network of agile professionals collaborating to promote and help modern organizations towards increased Business Agility.

Online Delivery

As mentioned above, we typically work with Zoom for virtual collaboration and team exercises, and Slack for communication between the sessions. Other tools such as Mural, Trelloa and Menti will be used over the course of the programme. Course literature and material will be sent to participants and distributed digitally via the Agile People learning management platform.

Accumulation of certification assignment material will be done during and between the sessions so that participants will have minimal work to do to complete their post-programme submission for certification.

During the period, participants will take part in 2-hour sessions. Total 8 sessions – at a regular and mutually agreed weekly time slot(s) to be established with you.
