Emergn Partners With BCS, The Chartered Institute For IT

NEW YORK and LONDON, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Emergn, a global professional services company, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, to provide its work-based education program, VFQ (Value, Flow, Quality®) as the foundation to deliver a new and advanced program that will certify Agile practitioners.


A new certification program to support organizations and IT professionals

Over the last decade, Agile development methods have become increasingly popular around the world. Organizations have seen major benefits from adopting tools, practices and methodologies, but until now, the industry has lacked a systematic approach to training and education. The resulting dependence on external coaches of variable quality has left organizations struggling to develop the necessary skills.

BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, has been considering how it can best help businesses and IT professionals, and it has selected Emergn as its partner to deliver an internationally-recognized Practitioner Level of the new Agile Professional Certification.

The skills organizations need today

VFQ understands that Agile is not the end in itself – the bottom line is that businesses need to deliver more value, flow and quality. The course provides a thorough grounding in the best way to deliver IT-based products and services. It provides a deep understanding of Agile practices, including Scrum and Kanban. It also offers solutions to challenges that traditional training merely touches on: – how to build a high-performance team; different methods to help prioritize; balancing the trade-offs between cost and speed; how to improve flow throughout the organization and much more.

Continuous learning and a deeper level of understanding

The Agile Professional Certification is built according to the latest thinking in education. With VFQ, learners engage, remember and apply new ideas far more effectively. Rather than offering a superficial 'how to' set of instructions, VFQ helps learners develop their skills at a much deeper level. New ideas are then put into practice through a series of activities and work-based projects. Over the past year, VFQ has been successfully adopted by both private and public sector organizations around the world, including Maersk Line and DFID (The Department for International Development in the UK).
