Detailed Description of ICP-CAT Course
“This designation is one of ICAgile’s most advanced knowledge-based certifications. It demonstrates an understanding of the skills and competencies needed to become an Enterprise Agile Coach.” ICAgile
The Coaching Agile Transitions or ICP-CAT explores the world of Agile transformation, particularly from the perspective of people. The typical top-down approach often fails due to resistance or lack of a clear vision. What is truly needed is engagement of everyone and supporting self-management in solving real business challenges.
ICAgile’s ICP-CAT provides students with a deep understanding of systemic coaching and facilitation techniques that allow everyone involved in a transformation to join in its co-creation. We will examine components core to agile transitions including organizational and human change processes, transformation strategies, addressing organizational impediments, and educating, communicating and facilitating at an organizational level.
In this course, individuals will further enhance their servant leadership skills and organizational coaching abilities. We will provide useful enterprise coaching techniques and tools that they can practice throughout the course and can be immediately applied to their personal and professional world.
Participants will learn to see organizations as unique systems and become aware of the different systems and subsystems within those organizations. From understanding organizational impediments and resistance to change to developing enhanced communication skills and utilizing powerful questions, course participants will learn to coach leaders through their journey toward Business Agility.
Through this knowledge, participants will be able to identify and interact with organizations at each stage of an Agile transition to have the greatest impact as an Agile Coach. This will empower leaders and their organizations to achieve the next level in overall Business Agility and Servant Leadership.
