Agile People Leadership (ICP-LEA) [Online]
Today the most progressive companies have changed the formal management role to a more servant leadership role, realizing that people are most productive, creative and happy when they have personal control over their own lives and the ability to be leaders of their destiny, private or work-related. In these organizations, everybody is expected to be a leader, so there is paradoxical, a lot more leadership there.

We are working with Zoom for presentations and team exercises, Trello for keeping track of the agenda items and exercises and Slack for communication between the sessions. There will be some work to be done after every session, so add about 5 hours more every week. Course literature and material will be sent to your location and distributed digitally.
During the period, you take part in 1,5-hour sessions. Totally 12 sessions - six options, depending on where you are in the world. The date and time are the starts of every session. Please add what Option you choose when you sign up.
Do I need any pre-competence?
You don't need any pre-competence of agile to attend the online course. We are tailoring the course for the participants and your level.
How does the process look for this training?
The training is a copy of the physical training but we will use online tools instead of face-to-face meetings. You will need a good internet connection and an undisturbed workplace where you can have a quiet background. We will work in break-out sessions in Zoom and use Slack för communication between the instructor-led sessions, which will happen every week between 15-17 Central European Time.
All material will be shared via a Trello board and a Google drive. We will let you know everything about practicalities during the first session.
Are the classes scheduled on specific days at specific times?
Yes, classes will be scheduled on specific days and times. See above what applies to this course.
After training completion, what is the process to become ICAgile Certified?
The process of certification is that you need to finalize the certification assignment, which is to describe how you would turn around HR and leadership in a company that has gone bankrupt due to not being agile enough (real case, a Swedish fashion company). When the assignment is finalized (approved with feedback from us), we will make your certificate download available from ICAgile via a link.
