Certification Class Track Course Description
ICAgile Certified Professional - Agile Testing The Whole Team Approach to Agile Testing Agile Testing This three day course explains how testers can become valued agile team members and how other team members can contribute to testing activities to help deliver a continuous stream of business value. It describes the values and principles that help teams adopt an agile testing mindset. Students learn how to complete testing activities in short iterations, and how testers contribute on a daily basis during each iteration and release cycle. Processes such as ATDD (Acceptance Test Driven Development) will be stressed throughout the course. Through interactive exercises and group discussions, participants will discover good strategies for guiding development with both executable and manual tests. The course is filled with real-life examples of the many ways agile testers add value. A simulation of an agile project wraps up the whole course giving participants an opportunity to put all the puzzle pieces together, to practice what they have learned.
ICAgile Certified Professional - Agile Team Facilitation Agile Team Facilitation (ICP-ATF) Agile Coaching Leading teams to higher levels of maturity requires the ability to plan and conduct effective team meetings to ensure the team is working collaboratively. In an Agile environment, the team depends on the facilitation skills of the Agile Team Facilitator to lead the team to higher levels of performance. The Agile Team Facilitator (ATF) role is broader than conducting meetings. The ATF must also guide the team through the paradigm shifts required in Agile team environments and lead them towards collaboration and self-organization. To do so requires a mindset shift for the team leader – the facilitator mindset. ASPE’s Agile Team Facilitation course meets the requirements to offer the ICAgile Certified Professional in Agile Team Facilitation (ICP-ATF). This is the first step towards achieving the coveted expert level certification in ICAgile’s Agile Coaching track. The course gives you the much-needed skills to design and conduct collaborative meetings while leading teams toward higher maturity levels, more effective results, and self-organization. As a stepping-stone towards becoming an Agile Coach, this course focuses not only on skills and techniques but also on the mindset for the facilitator and the facilitator’s path towards becoming an Agile Coach. It includes group facilitation tools and techniques for effectively designing meetings and workshops that both engage the entire audience and drives toward agreed-upon outcomes. The learner will develop an appreciation for the art of facilitation as key to fostering collaboration and enabling self-organizing teams.

ICAgile Certified Professional - Enterprise Product Ownership Enterprise Product Ownership (ICP-EPO) Product Ownership ASPE’s Enterprise Product Ownership course looks at how to maximize value across the organization – and it is more than just dollars and cents! Enterprise Product Owners, Product Owners, Product Managers, Business Analysts, and other Value Managers need to look at the overall business value across a variety of proposals to answer questions such as: which initiatives to select, how much to spend, and when to stop. They have to look at the bigger picture to ensure their initiatives are aligned with company strategy and articulate value at the organization level. The course will go into specific tools and techniques to help you keep initiatives on the value track.

Attendees will also learn how to focus on the correct items at the right time to make the best possible decisions for a successful project and happy customers and stakeholders.
