goAgile’s 3-day course is specifically designed to meet the needs of managers and leaders working in Agile organizations or organizations transforming to Agile methodologies – providing hands-on learning, covering the full management perspective of Agile including benefits, roles, responsibilities, new ways of leading, motivation, change and mindset.
The key to successful Agile management is in doing everything you can as a leader to support following the value – optimizing and maximizing business benefits. Transforming to Agile principles and practices is not easy – it’s about changing mindsets and leading in a new way – carefully balanced between standing back and stepping in to guide the teams in your organization.
We have seen many Agile teams in different countries and cultures, and while many have been successful, we’ve also learned valuable lessons which we share in this course. Common problems are resistance to change, situations where teams are not nurtured, where management interferes too much or intervenes too late. The solutions are often surprisingly simple.
During this course, we will show you how a manager gets the most out of Agile – sharing the business case for Agile; roles and responsibilities, ceremonies and artifacts; how to deal with complexity; planning across the organization; scaling Agile; leadership tools to support Agile; dealing with the uncertainty of change; and mindset shifts.
We mix theory with practical exercises and tools to create an understanding for how you as a leader can act to support your people and the success of your Agile projects to deliver real value – requently and on schedule.
The course is targeted to managers and leaders who want and need to get a deeper understanding about the Agile management perspective.
The course is in a workshop format that varies between presenting theory and hands-on activities. As applying theory is the best way to learn, participants will play a very active role in the course.
There is no prerequisite knowledge required, but it’s an advantage to have some experience managing and supporting projects.
