Without the capacity for change, an organization will not survive the turmoil of the world. Agility is needed now more than ever before in every person’s thinking, ways of working, and in leading an organization. The introduction of an agile model alone will not bring bliss unless an agile mindset is ingrained in the organisation’s ways of working.
It’s time to change the misconception that agility is only suitable for IT development. After this training, you will be prepared to implement agile methods in your own work environment, regardless of industry. We will review the values and principles of agility as well as the way of thinking. This training includes an hour of personal consultation.
Agile methods are driven by the need to improve the business and deliver a functional product, service or project as early as possible, while continually improving operations during development. When well implemented, agile methods result to better customer and staff satisfaction. In many IT organizations, agile methods have also spread beyond IT development. Organizations have found that agile values and principles can be applied with good results in the various functions of an organization, and that the benefits increase when agile methods are used throughout the value chain. These benefits and positive results can also be achieved through agile methods outside the IT industry, for example in HR, marketing or running the entire business.
This training focuses on the values and principles of agility. Understanding the underlying values and principles will also make it easier to understand how you can apply different tools to your own organization and situation. This training consists of theory, group work and games so that you gain practical tools for everyday use. We will also talk about real-life examples of how agile methods have been utilized outside of IT development.
