A new Agile certification scheme has been launched in response to a growing interest in Agile and the reported benefits for organisations.

BCS, which is The Chartered Institute for IT have set up the scheme after research found that 80% of organisations which implement Agile improve their ability to manage changing priorities, be more flexible, and better align business and IT.

The scheme is in partnership with IT company Emergn and will see the developed certification project piloted this spring with view to an autumn launch.
