Emergn Partners With BCS, The Chartered Institute For IT

Charles Agnew, CIO for The Department for International Development said "VFQ has brought a tremendous amount of value to our adoption of more agile ways of working. Its unique work-based approach helps our people develop their capability whilst adding value to the project directly, solving their own problems and really learning about the principles of Agile software delivery. The industry has been in need of a benchmark and quality standard for some time.  I'm delighted that BCS and Emergn have made this possible using VFQ. This will help more organizations transform the way they work with IT and provide a quality standard that allows us to know we are developing the right capability."

Helping business transform

Martyn Lambert, Chief Executive Officer, BCS Learning & Development Ltd explains: "We have always been committed to developing capability in all roles and responsibilities to help the industry improve. We knew there was a real need for an in-depth and expert course that would really help IT professionals achieve the grade of certification required in Agile. We are delighted to be working with Emergn on this which dovetails with the aims of our skills and competency framework, SFIA plus ."

Alex Adamopoulos, Chief Executive Officer of Emergn adds: "We're delighted to partner with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. From our experience we know how businesses need to develop the right skills if they are to make Agile work for them and deliver on its potential. Indeed, we decided to create VFQ because we continued to hear from our clients that traditional training or coaching just wasn't enough. It has been exciting to see individuals and organizations around the world learn from VFQ and begin to implement new practices and build on them. With the new BCS program, we hope to see more and more organizations realize the benefits of Agile and develop their own capacity for change."
