The ICP-PPM is one of two Continuous Learning Certifications (CLCs) on the Delivery Management track. This certification focuses on applying agile management principles beyond projects to programs, portfolios, and broader organizational contexts. The learning objectives take a methodology-neutral approach and course providers may teach key concepts using one of the industry-leading scaling frameworks or using a more people-centric transformation approach. Participants can also expect to learn about lean principles and how they apply to eliminate waste and maximize value-delivery across an organization. Upon completing this certification, learners will know proven concepts for managing agile programs and portfolios as well as common pitfalls to avoid when implementing agile at scale.
The ICP-PPM learning objectives are currently being finalized, training providers will begin offering courses for this certification soon. Typically, training providers will cover the required learning objectives in approximately 14 hours of instructional activities over the course of two to three days.
