Agile Affinity LLP has announced the first Agile Coaching course in Europe accredited by both the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) and the International Coach Federation (ICF).
[UKPRwire, Thu Oct 10 2019] Agile Affinity LLP has announced the first Agile Coaching course in Europe accredited by both the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) and the International Coach Federation (ICF).
The advanced course will allow professionals to learn critical knowledge to develop the competencies to coach an agile team. Participants who successfully complete the course will be eligible for ICAgile’s Professional Certification in Agile Coaching (ICP-ACC), as well as ICF’s Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units.
“As organisations change towards becoming Agile to obtain greater Business Agility the demand for Agile Coaching has increased immensely and shows no sign of abating,” said Rickard Jones of Agile Affinity. “Therefore how do companies adapt to compete in an ever-changing world and accelerate their employee's capability towards greater Business Agility?”
Agile Affinity LLP seeks to answer this question by professionalising the world of Agile Coaching with a top-quality learning experience. The team has striven to embed the “Gold Standard” in its course, accrediting it against the rigorous criteria for the two leading certification bodies in both Professional and Agile Coaching.
With this announcement, Agile Affinity LLP becomes the first ICAgile Member Organization in Europe to offer training dually accredited with ICF. By exceeding industry standards to achieve this status, participants can be assured of the course’s rigour and quality.
“When we originally partnered with global thought leaders to create our Agile Coaching track, this is the level of rigour we aspired to achieve. We are thrilled to see this come to fruition for Agile Coaches around the world and we hold the ICF in high regard,” said Shannon Ewan, Managing Director of ICAgile.
Rickard Jones, an author of the Agile HR Manifesto, added: “this European first adds extra value to our Agile Coaching course and provides a solid assurance with additional confidence to all our clients that the course has been peer-reviewed by the leading industry organisations for Agile and Professional Coaching.”
International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) is a community-driven organization that consists of pioneers, experts, and trusted advisors. ICAgile is not just another certification body. We are changing the way people do agile by helping them become agile.
From the beginning, ICAgile’s mission has been to help organizations achieve sustainable agility by focusing on the transformation of people, not just processes. We do this by providing learning journeys that equip people with an Agile mindset as a foundation, then guide them along a path towards mastery in their chosen discipline
