Agile Foundation Purpose
The Agile Consortium stimulates people to become aware of the benefits of being agile and to discover the many different means to get there. These means include the Manifesto for Agile Software Development, a great number of agile practices and of course agile behaviour.
The Agile Foundation Certificate is meant for people who are new to agile and curious about what the agile principles and practices are all about.
The idea behind the Agile Foundation Exam, which preceeds the granting of an Agile Foundation Certificate, is that people submerge themselves into knowledge about agile by reading books and articles, visiting agile events, observing agile behaviour in their organizations or by being trained.
