What will I learn?

By the end of the course, you will be equipped to:

  • Recognise and understand why transformation in your organisation is necessary
  • Utilise agile and lean ways of working to be able to work in more agile ways immediately
  • Be part of a culture of organisational-wide agility
  • Use the tailorable framework to champion change within your organisation
How will I benefit?

Most organisations know that they need to transform, and work in a more agile way. Yet a frequent problem is the creation of isolated agile delivery teams unsupported by a wider organizational engagement initiative. These agile delivery teams need to interact with other business functions including: Finance, HR, Operations, Sales & Marketing and Legal. Often, these teams do not know why an agile approach is being used, the benefits associated with it, or how best to enable that way of working. Plus, their traditional working processes are not set up to support agile. This is where current approaches to organisational agility are failing.

  • AgileSHIFT training and certification will help you enable transformational change in your organisation by equipping you with a holistically targeted approach to enterprise agility.
  • It will enable you to adapt to change opportunities more quickly and establish a culture of enterprise agility.
