ICF teamed with ASI Government to propose a program for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) that includes customized learning paths and a combination of instructional strategies that move participants from knowledge and understanding to demonstrated learning, advocacy, and on-job application. The six-month pilot program is specifically designed to strengthen digital services expertise by using an agile approach to learning that serves as a signal for the agile software development methodology its graduates need to understand.
The course delivers new material in two-week iterations combined into four-week releases. Continuous feedback—the hallmark of agile development—will inform real-time adjustments to course content and pacing and allow for individualization of the learning experience. With an emphasis on application, demonstrated learning, and transformational culture change, participants are equipped with the knowledge, skills, to serve as the primary catalysts for change within their own organizations.
