The world around us is changing at an extraordinary pace. It is not just the rapid pace of change, but that business leaders now deal with a VUCA world where there is increasing Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity.

In this two-day Agile leadership training, participants learn why we need business agility, the personal key competencies to lead the transformation, and the organizational elements required to survive and thrive in today’s turbulent environment.

This course goes into specific tools and techniques to help you develop relevant leadership capabilities. We combine exercises, case studies, and interactivity to understand the principles and concepts behind agility. In addition, we address the organization and the key elements for thoughtful improvement of our organizational abilities.

The ICP-ALP is one of the Continuing Learning Certifications (CLCs) on the Agile Executive Leadership track.
