In-depth learning session A
Enterprise agility for leaders – how to keep your teams and business agile

This interactive learning session will explore what makes a truly agile organisation. The secret sauce is not applying a single Agile method (although you may gain some benefits from this), but is instead a mindset. Unlike where so many other workshops and training sessions tell you mindset is culture, this workshop will delve into real solutions that can be systematically applied by leaders to change how you deliver.

Key take away skills/benefits:

  • Understanding that there is a pattern to thinking styles and how this relates to organisational agility
  • Ability to recognise this pattern to both your organisation and to the people inside of it
  • Understanding that there is a pattern to transformation and the pain points that you can expect based upon which pattern approach you take
  • Ability to recognise this pattern within your organisation
  • Understanding the many different methods that comprise the world of Agile and the pain points that these methods are trying to address
  • Walk through best practice enterprise agility – including decentralisation and decoupling, fluidic roles and outcome driven establishment of agile meetings – from teams, to at scale to leadership and portfolio management.
  • Ability to build your own agile method that meets the pain points and needs of your organisation.
