What is ICP-BAF course?
People at every level and in practically every role in today's organizations are required to focus on customer delight, and bring innovation and continuous improvement into their work. This is a hard challenge and one that requires either building new muscles or limbering up muscles we may not use often. This highly experiential set of learning outcomes equips participants with new knowledge, tools, and techniques to implement immediately. The ICAgile Certified Professional in Business Agility Foundations (ICP-BAF) is intended to jumpstart the organizational and individual transformation towards a more responsive, value-driven reality.

Know your trainers
Matthew Graham based in UK is an Agile Coach and Trainer with broad experience in facilitating change in large scale organisations.
By promoting the culture of a learning organisation and systems thinking I accelerate organisations in their journey towards Business Agility and
adopting a more Agile mindset. I bring a high level of energy as an Agile enthusiast and enjoy showing organisations the positive impact of developing organic agility and have coached senior management, CIO, CIO-1 to software development teams across different scaling frameworks.
Having previously enjoyed a career in the British Army I have naturally evolved from the command and control to servant leadership philosophy -
I've found servant leadership to be very much more effective. I'm passionate about learning and making the world of work a better place!
