Description

AGILE FOR LEADERS WORKSHOP

Agility is a mindset, not a methodology.

At Next Paradigm, we understand that not everyone wants, or needs, to be a Scrum Master - but the benefits of Agile and Lean are available to the whole organisation, not just software developers.

Agile for Leaders is a one-day workshop for anyone who wants to learn how to incorporate agile and lean thinking into their, and their team's, daily work practice.
