SQS continues in its quest to make businesses more agile by offering an ICAgile-accredited course.
SQS, the world’s leading specialist in software quality, is now offering an Agile Fundamentals course accredited by the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile). The collaboration between SQS Academy and ICAgile, a leading global Agile certification and accreditation body, ensures that the course is accredited against proven learning objectives which were developed by worldwide industry experts. Professionals who successfully complete this course with SQS will be granted the ICAgile Certified Professional (ICP) credential.
The Agile Fundamentals course takes a methodology-neutral view, looking under the hood at the fundamental philosophies behind the most popular Agile approaches. It gives students both a broader and deeper appreciation of the core of Agile methods, leading to better overall application when deploying Agile in businesses.
The benefits are even greater for organisations. Applying Agile brings products and services to market quicker and reduces overhead while improving customer satisfaction. Businesses that work with SQS to train their staff can expect a rapid acceleration towards their goal of becoming agile, rewarding them with increased competitive advantage in the shortest time possible.
David McGrath, Head of Agile at SQS Ireland, comments, “Agile has been hailed by both technologists and business analysts as the way forward for the vast majority of successful businesses and employees alike. Until relatively recently, Agile has tended to be the preserve of software development businesses. However, word has spread and the benefits are being seen in all manner of departments, across an ever-broader range of industries. Businesses not practicing Agile are being left behind which means the pressure to either train staff or acquire Agile specialists to fill the skills-gap is mounting. “
Ahmed Sidky, President of ICAgile, added, “Many organisations still think that Agile is just another IT process and therefore focus on the rituals of the process. ICAgile and all of its partners like SQS understand that Agile is more than a process, it’s a mindset. We are excited about welcoming SQS to our community of partner organizations who support our mission of unlocking the power of agility through the transformation of people. ICAgile-accredited courses are designed to help people embrace the Agile mindset and embark on learning journeys that lead to mastery in various agile disciplines.”
