Live Online Training Workshop

Introduction to Agile for Business Professionals

How to manage VUCA and increase business effectiveness and productivity in challenging times

Course overview

As recent events have shown, the world as we know is constantly being disrupted, both positively and negatively. VUCA, or volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, is the norm in many workplaces and organisations. How do we deal with this? How do we remain effective and productive in such challenging conditions?

In this live online training workshop, business professionals will learn why embracing Agile is becoming a rite of passage for many organisations, big and small. Understand what are the values and principles of Agile that can help in managing business and work in complex environments.

Participants will also learn how to make use of the Cynefin model to make effective and sustainable decisions. To be able to practise Agile values & principles immediately, participants will also learn Kanban, a work management system that helps to increase focus and productivity, and, more importantly, Customer-Outcomes.
