Event description

Description

Agile methodology has been proven to foster best possible outcomes in countless tech-driven organisations. Now, the smartest businesses and business leaders are taking these disciplines and utilising them for broader operational excellence through more effectively developing new products, executing project work and making better strategic decisions more quickly.

In an agile work environment, managers and leaders take on new roles: moving from task management to unblocking obstacles, from resource allocation to coaching. Managers need to understand the fundamentals of Agile methodology, how to get the best out of an Agile team, and how to successfully transition from more traditional ways of working.

This one-day bootcamp is for managers, heads of department, business owners and emerging leaders who want to understand the essentials of Agile, and learn how to apply Agile tools and techniques to enhance speed, communication and a culture of continuous improvement in their organisation.
