Agile Leadership


The objective of this training is to ensure that the participants learn how to apply and facilitate an Agile leadership framework to realize their career aspirations and advance their organization’s goals. The participants learn how to apply and facilitate an Agile leadership framework to their situation.

Implementing an Agile approach not only has an impact on employees, but also on management. In an Agile organization, work is done by autonomous, self-managing teams. The employees get more responsibility and work together to decide what needs to be done and how they are going to do it.

 

Agile Leadership

Why Agile Leadership is needed?

You may wonder whether we need managers at all if the organization is managing itself. The answer is YES! Working with self-managing teams does not alter the fact that all the work they do has to fit in with the company’s strategy. Leadership therefore remains necessary in order to highlight the broad outlines and communicate these to the entire workforce. It is the task of the Agile leader to ensure that everyone is on the same page. In addition, they ensure that the teams are strong on their own, so they can work freely on the success of the organization.
