SAN FRANCISCO, October 2, 2018 – AgileCamp announced today that the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) has been named the Official Education Partner for its 2018 AgileCamp conference series.

ICAgile, a global agile accreditation and certification body, has accredited a new public course presented by Hyperdrive Agile Leadership, a Silicon Valley-based training and advisory firm, and taught by Toyota Connected Chief of Agile Nigel Thurlow.

The ICAgile accredited public course, called “Scrum: The Toyota Way,” will be held in concert with the upcoming AgileCamp Dallas-Fort Worth conference scheduled for Nov. 2, 2018, in Irving, Texas.

We selected ICAgile as our educational partner based upon their outstanding reputation in the Agile community. We think the addition of new courses to be held in concert with AgileCamp will be of great value to our attendees.

“AgileCamp 2018 promises to be an invigorating experience for our agile community, all the more so with the stellar educational programming presented by Hyperdrive Agile Leadership,” said Ahmed Sidky, president of ICAgile. “ICAgile is proud to be entrusted with the accreditation of the ‘Scrum: The Toyota Way’ class as the Official Education Partner of AgileCamp 2018.”

“We selected ICAgile as our educational partner based upon their outstanding reputation in the Agile community. We think the addition of new courses to be held in concert with AgileCamp will be of great value to our attendees,” said Stacey Louie, AgileCamp founder.

The “Scrum: The Toyota Way” course will be held on Oct. 31-Nov. 1, 2018, in Plano, Texas, prior to the AgileCamp Dallas-Fort Worth conference. The course, which will be taught by Thurlow, will give students a rare glimpse into Toyota’s highly successful operating processes while providing an introduction to agile methodologies.

“As one of the most successful practices in history, Toyota is well known for creating the Toyota Production System and establishing the ‘Toyota Way’ culture,” said Louie. The course, which is being debuted for the first time to the public, will be highly valuable to Agile students, he added. “To attend a class taught by Nigel, who is an internationally renowned Agile expert, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Louie noted.

Participants who successfully complete the class will be certified as ICAgile Certified Professionals in Agile Fundamentals. The class is open to all. Attending the conference is not a requirement for registration for the class, however, a discount combination package is available for those who attend both.
