Agile Leadership

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not currently able to deliver any classroom based training courses. We are in the process of adapting all of our content so that we can provide an equivalent service online. For more information please get in touch.

Being an agile leader requires providing direction, support and trust in your team to get the job done.

The biggest challenge to leaders is being able to adapt at the same pace as the changes that are shaping our modern world.

The drive for growth and greater efficiency, for delivering more with less is the norm.

The role of leaders is changing.

A command and control culture just doesn't work anymore - the problems we're trying to solve have so many moving parts, the complexity is too high. Leaders have to think, act and be different - literally, they need to be more agile.

Our course gets you thinking about what being an agile leader really means and how to create the right environment for teams to collaborate, innovate and be effective. We look at your responsibility for providing direction and helping to solve organisational challenges. You'll gain an insight into what you need to do to change the working culture.

The course helps you understand your role in engaging and leading agile teams and how to support teams to ensure the products they're developing add value and meet clear business and user needs.

We'll look at why it's important to keep up to date with the latest changes in technology and innovation and keep a strategic overview of the products and services that are being delivered by the organisation.

Who's it for?

Our agile leaders course, is suitable for anyone responsible for leading one or more teams.

It's for leaders who are new to agile, who need to understand what being agile is about.

It's for leaders who need to support their agile teams but aren't sure how to get started or what to do next.

It's also suitable for leaders who are attempting to make agile work for them in their organisation, but are struggling to make it work.

If you're an agile or digital leader but don't directly lead a team, you might find our one day Agile Basics course useful instead.

Why should I attend?

Our course will engage you, challenging the way you currently work and think, exploring what it means to be an agile leader and how to support your teams and business to thrive in an agile environment.

This course gives you examples and tips about how to spot problems and will help you think differently, with an agile mindset to solve problems, work better with others, understand what value means and where to spend your energy.

It's interactive, full of discussion and exercises to really get you thinking.
