Professional Agile Leadership Essentials™

Professional Agile Leadership Essentials™


Becoming an Agile organisation is a profound transformation that requires senior leaders, middle managers, and Agile team members to change how they organise their work, manage that work, and measure the work results.

Professional Agile Leadership Essentials™ is a 16 hour hands-on workshop that uses a combination of instruction and hands-on exercises to help managers and other leaders who work directly with Agile teams understand how to best support, guide, and coach their teams to improve their agile capabilities. The workshop provides a foundation for leaders' role in creating the conditions for a successful business transformation with Agile. Leaders and managers are critical enablers in helping their organisations be successful. Yet, the role of leaders and managers in an Agile organisation can be quite different from what they are used to. This workshop uses a combination of instruction and team-based exercises to help participants learn how to form and support Agile teams to achieve better results and lead the cultural and behavioural changes that organisations must make to reap the benefits of an Agile product delivery approach.

What do our students say about our training?

Great mixture of interactivity and passive learning, even so it was remote it didn't feel as tiring as Zoom meetings normally are
