NoW-Academy
The future of work is NoW - Are you ready?

Programs

Our course content and syllabus have been informed by leaders in our community, research through our employee experience surveys, and decades of real life experiences in modern companies.

We believe strongly in experiential design, collaborative learning and the building of lasting relationships through community. All programs leverage multiple educators (local and international), an inspiring and fun environment, and practical take-aways that you can immediately use. Further, all our graduates will join our ever-growing online community where we open-source our learning and best practices.

All our bootcamps are hosted at the campuses of RED Academy - an organization committed to redefining education and shares in our passion for the NoW of Work.

We are living in exponential times. Companies, teams and individuals must learn to deliver innovative products and services at speeds never seen before.

Being innovative however, must not come at the expense of your important daily tasks, and your organization’s scorecard outcomes (revenues, profit, NPS, community impact, employee experience etc.). Balancing all the possible work people work on, while remaining necessarily nimble, has become more and more complex as our world moves at its rapid pace.

In this 2-day bootcamp, we’ll guide you through the history of Agile and the terms and acronyms you should be familiar with before taking a highly interactive journey on how to utilize the principles of Agile in non-technical environments. You’ll leave with a framework that will enable: cross-functional teamwork; transparency in team objectives; on-going progress; constant improvement; continuous feedback; and of course, a mindset of innovation and agility.

As a bonus to this program, we’ll utilize the OKR (Objectives and Key Results) framework that is being practices by the most modern companies around the world.
