Business Agility Foundations Certification
As the world changes at an unprecedented pace, imagine if organisations could navigate through change and use it as an opportunity to get better, rather than simply getting through. This unique program offers an intense, strategic appreciation for leaders and practitioners to understand the ingredients to create an Agile organisation that is responsive to value creation in a disruptive environment.
This practical workshop is designed to help you to speed your business up, to focus on what’s important, reduce waste and red tape and, most importantly deliver value to your business and your customers. This foundation is essential for leaders to jumpstart learning on how to thrive in uncertainty and create organisational success.
The ICP-BAF Certification from ICAgile is granted on the successful completion of this workshop, the subsequent 2 webinars, and a written submission. To obtain the certificate there is an additional $100 USD fee to be paid to ICAgile.

Seeing the increasing complexity and dynamics in our business and organizational environment, a large, 2000 people product development organization within Ericsson started the journey towards Agile in 2008. We early understood, that this journey can only be successful, if it is not only done by our SW development, but also involves changes in the way we run strategy, financial planning and HR.
In this talk, Hendrik Esser, who has been one of the key drivers of this change, will share experiences from that journey.
He will share how we got the essential parts of business planning, finance, HR and SW development aligned towards business agility: what we found, what we tried, what succeeded, our set-backs and lessons learned.

When faced with seemingly endless choices and a world moving at an increasing speed, how do you evaluate strategic options with speed and precision?
As a leader with over 30 years experience in sales, marketing and corporate roles within tech companies, Andy Cooper has pondered this problem for many years. Andy will explain how using concepts borrowed from Lean, Lean Startup, Agile Software Development, Beyond Budgeting and other adaptive approaches, you can create a highly effective process to make and evaluate decisions using a Value Engineering approach with the benefit that it can be used in multiple situations including evaluating product direction, strategic initiatives, or personal situations evolving value-based thinking.
In the session, Andy will walk through an example and show how this can be applied to solve many other tough value-based problems. Andy will also share how he has used this approach to solve sales and marketing challenges in the companies he has worked for.
