Develop and Sustain Value-based Organizations.

Gain important insights and perspectives for teams and beyond.

The Value Management Track emphasizes customer-focused approaches and practices to maximize value delivery at various levels within organizations. The learning objectives highlight concepts around organizational alignment, adaptive planning, establishment of value teams to set priorities, and techniques for spreading value-based approaches such as product roadmapping, progressive elaboration, and frequent cross-program communication. The knowledge-based certifications in this track are Business Value Analysis and Enterprise Value Management. Once learners obtain this foundation upon which to build competence, they can apply for the coveted ICAgile Certified Expert in Value Management.

This track is developed for: 
Business Analysts, Product Owners, and Agile team members will gain important tools and techniques from the Business Value Analysis course.  Product Managers, Product Leadership, and those in roles managing value across programs and portfolios will benefit from the Enterprise Value Management course.

    "When putting together the Value Management Track we looked at the practical skills needed to really be able to maximise the delivery of valuable products in an organisation. All too often we really efficiently solve the wrong problem - value management ensures that we get the best return for the investment made in product development."
