Agile People Fundamentals
Whether you are a leader, line manager, agile coach or have any kind of HR role (specialist, administrator or business partner), you need to understand how strategy, structures, and processes, methods and culture need to change when working in a company that wants to work according to Agile values in order to increase adaptability to external changes.
This course gives you tools, principles, and knowledge on how you can work to increase business agility in your organization, from building your self-leadership to how you can lead others at different levels in the organization and finally how to create structures and culture which are in harmony and balance to achieve a common vision. You will be helped to identify and correct system errors in your own organization through new principles and agile working methods.
The Agile People Fundamentals training can be combined with other training to tailor the right learning experience for you. Combine with Agile People HR and receive an ICAgile certification for ICP-AHR. Combine with Agile People Leadership and receive an ICAgile certification for ICP-LEA.
The program is made up of 10 topics that we will cover over 10 intensive online sessions - beginning 14 Oct and ending on 28 Oct - 0900 - 1100 CET.

Agile People Fundamentals
Session F1: Introduction to Agile People and important principles/tools
The foundation of Agile People's' mindset is about the principles, values, methods, and tools that we need to start using to release competence and innovation – and what we stop doing. We discuss your challenges and certification assignment. This session is an introduction to the agile way of working and thinking.
Session F2: Psychological safety as a foundation for a learning organisation
The importance of an approach that is permeated by security and confidence to increase profitability and innovation – to increase creativity through a culture where it is ok to fail and try again. We play "The Psychological Safety Game" to facilitate dialogue about difficult topics.
Session F3: Structuring the organisational ecosystem
Emerging strategies instead of long-term planning, new ways of working with strategy, budgets, goals, performance processes, and rewards. Using value stream mapping to optimise flows in a system instead of working with resource optimisation and sub-optimisation of departments.
Session F4: Growing an agile culture
Creating conditions for a fantastic culture where people can perform at their optimal level with a sense of being supported and secure. The gap between structures and culture/values. Structure – Culture Misfit Role Play. The importance of country culture for an Agile transformation.
Session F5: Creating Conditions for Change
Today we are challenged as people and as organisations to be much more responsive and adaptable, to have the capacity to navigate in complexity. How can we make sense of things when things keep changing, how can we make decisions and act when most of the time we don’t have all the information we need and create conditions for change?
Your course leader and facilitator will be:
This course is available 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 different virtual tools. 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.
There will be some work to be done after every session, so this class will need your full attention during these intensive days. The certification assignment can be accomplished in the time between the sessions so that you will be ready on the day of the last session. But in this intense tempo, we recommend that you do the assignment after the training has stopped.
