ICAgile LEADING WITH AGILITY
Organizations today are struggling to stay responsive and effective in the face of increasingly turbulent economic, technological, sociological and market forces. Most companies are struggling just to catch up with, let alone get in front of, the accelerating turbulence that seems to infect every industry. The problem is that business leaders are not only dealing with rapid change. What most leaders are dealing with is a condition of increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA). The Leading With Agility certification is valuable to anyone wishing to learn about the paradigm shifts necessary to lead in VUCA environments, and to develop relevant leadership capabilities.

Today’s leaders must be able to recognize and respond to dynamic global challenges and opportunities while tapping into the intrinsic power of their employees to deliver industry leading solutions and services.
