Everyone is talking Agility, change management, and continuing improvement. I felt that there was a lack of clarity of these terms in my professional life, which led to confusion and loss of meaning. The ACP training allowed me to understand and improve my application of Agile methods. It's difficult in industries like mine, the non-profit sector, far removed from the traditional software industry where agile is strong. Thank you to the great trainers !
