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.
