Leading with
Agility (ICAgile Certified)

Goal

The nature of leadership has changed. The top-down, directive style of leadership is not successful anymore in adaptive work environments. The 21s century requires a new kind of leader: lean, agile, adaptive, and innovative. In this program, leaders learn how to create an environment that will allow teams to thrive with agility, innovation, and higher productivity.

Participants who finish this program (in either collocated, online, or a self-paced workshop) qualify for an official ICAgile Leading with Agility certificate.

This workshop is for you if

  • You are a leader or an aspiring leader at any level in an organization.
  • You lead or aspire to lead in an organization on a business agility journey.
  • You aim to be a changemaker, helping the organization achieve continuous innovation.
  • You are committed to developing yourself as a people manager or leader.

This is a standalone workshop, meaning that no prior knowledge or certifications of lean agile thinking, business agility, or continuous innovation are required. However, this is not merely a beginner’s workshop. Having some experience with new product development and business management (in any role) will make attendance easier. We recommend first attending and completing the Business Agility Foundations learning program.
