About the training:

The Program and Portfolio Management (ICP-PPM) is one of two Continuous Learning Certifications on the Delivery Management track at International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) education roadmap. This certification focuses on applying agile management principles beyond projects to programs, portfolios, and broader organizational contexts. The learning objectives take a methodology-neutral approach and course providers may teach key concepts using one of the industry-leading scaling frameworks like SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) and using a people-centric transformation approach.

Participants will also learn about lean principles and how they apply to eliminate waste and maximize value-delivery across an organization.

Upon completing this certification, learners will know proven concepts for managing agile programs and portfolios as well as common pitfalls to avoid when implementing agile at scale.
