What you will learn

To succeed in a changing world, organizations need to become more agile, more responsive to customer needs and market changes. This workshop will equip leaders and managers to help their organizations change by providing participants with:

  • An overview of what “Agile” is, why organizations need it to survive and thrive in a changing world, how it works, and how to quantify its benefits from a business perspective
  • The means to identify the potential opportunities and impacts of Agile in terms of business value
  • An understanding of how Agile addresses the root causes of business uncertainty and IT project failure and/or dissatisfied customers
  • The ability to compare and contrast Agile practices with alternative business practices and discuss how Agile fosters a culture of innovation and enhances financial performance
  • An understanding of how to help form and support agile teams using an empirical approach to product delivery
  • An understanding of typical challenges that agile teams face and how to support them by removing impediments

Expected Outcomes After Attending the Workshop

You will have leaders who understand how being agile adds value to their business, and why leadership understanding, sponsorship, and support of Agile practices are essential to successfully becoming more agile as an organization. Leaders will be prepared to support and enable successful teams by providing guidance and removing impediments that are beyond the team’s ability to address.

This class can be delivered on-site, in a specific organization, to help its leaders understand their important role in transforming their organization or in a public class setting.
