Since the ICP is foundational and the gateway to all other ICAgile tracks, the ICP credential has the broadest target audience. It is appropriate for those new to agile, and for practitioners who recognize the need to focus on â€œbeingâ€ agile in addition to â€œdoingâ€ agile.

While the Agile Fundamentals class is not a requirement to pursue any professional-level certifications on ICAgile various learning tracks, we highly recommend taking the class and receiving the ICAgile Certified Professional (ICP) certification as a first step. This ensures a consistent foundation - one that is rooted in an agile mindset - across all students. We have also received feedback from people who have been doing agile that the ICAgile Fundamentals curriculum results in powerful "ah ha" moments around the being of agile.
