Agile Fundamentals for Business Teams

Contact us for pricing and a detailed course outline via Enquire Online below

Agility is no longer limited to software development. All areas of the organisation from Marketing to HR, Operations to Procurement can benefit from adopting an agile mindset and implementing agile practices.

Business teams that adopt an agile mindset focus on transparency, collaboration and trust. The result is a more responsive team able to identify market changes, respond quickly to those changes, and lead change in a productive and cost effective way without compromising quality.

However, what works for software development doesn't necessarily work for business as usual teams or teams with shifting priorities. Trying to squeeze the business round peg into the software development agile square hole, is simply not going to work.

Elabor8's Agile Fundamentals for Business Teams course has been designed to provide individuals and teams with the knowledge and skills to transition from traditional plan-driven methodologies to change-driven methodologies using agile principles and tools.

This course starts with the WHY of agile, teaching the agile mindset and how this is of benefit to your customers and business. It then moves to HOW, looking at the frameworks, tools and techniques that individuals need to be productive members of a business team that's adopting agile ways of working. 

This is an immersive, hands-on course delivered by trainers who have experience across business and IT. Participants apply theory to activities throughout the course with a constant focus on the customer, collaboration, delivering value, learning and continuous improvement.
