About the program

This training leads to an ICAgile Certification: Agility in HR (ICP-AHR) and Leading in Agility (ICP-LEA) and the course price includes the cost for the 2 certifications

Although the changed view on leaders and of the formal manager role is far from mainstream today, many organizations are experimenting with alternative structures, replacing budgets with forecasts and dynamic resource allocation, to create the best possible value.

The role of managers is changing rapidly and also, the role of HR is under tremendous change, from focusing mainly on policies and processes to understanding that the future for HR lies in creating conditions for people to perform and be happy. By removing impediments, we can instead maximize engagement and employee satisfaction that will fuel speed and adaptability in a common, strategic direction.

You will leave this experience having gained both knowledge and practical skills to bring forward new ways of working around Leadership & HR that place you in a leading position to creating lasting change, engagement, and a truly empowered workplace.

This course will be delivered online. Prior to our first session, you will receive access to the Agile People Learning Management System where you will access all of the course content, workbooks, and supporting materials.

We are working with Zoom for live sessions, Mural as a digital canvas for collaboration, Trello for keeping track of the agenda items and exercises, and Slack for communication between the sessions.

We will provide you guided information to access all of the various tools prior to our first session as well as on-going throughout the experience.
