Agile change for management -workshop series

A concrete start for agile transformation for the management team. We clarify the benefits of agility for your organization and identify areas for improvement to achieve the change. You will also learn how to enhance your management team collaboration with agile methods.

Change or Die – why would you sacrifice your time for this?

When agile practices first emerged in a big way in the IT industry, organizations that were unable to adapt gradually died off from the market. Nowadays, agile is actually the only vital way to do product development in the IT industry. However, a new, even broader transformation of operating practices is already well underway. Agile principles are common, efficiency-boosting lessons that can be applied in other areas of the organization, ranging from marketing and sales to HR and top management strategy work. The benefits of agile methods can be realized regardless of the industry.

Having led numerous business and agile transformations, we help your leadership team discover the benefits of agility for your specific organization. We also take leadership team collaboration to a new level with agile methods. A successful journey towards agility and the realization of its benefits come when the change starts with a committed leadership.

Choose the scope according to your needs

Our leadership workshops are organized into modules of appropriate size according to the agile model. You can choose the scope based on your change needs. We can initially focus either on increasing the leadership team’s understanding and taking their teamwork to the next level, or on laying the groundwork for an agile transformation throughout the organization.

Through retrospectives, we identify the development areas of your leadership team or the entire organization, and create a concrete, prioritized backlog for your organization’s agile change. Our workshops are a suitable combination of theory and practicality, as well as means to successfully bring the change to goal.
