Workshop Improving Organizational Agility at XA2021

October 3, 2021 - October 7, 2021

I’m giving my workshop Improving Organizational Agility at the Experience Agile week (XA2021) as a three-day online workshop. Book your seat at eXperience Agile.

Improving Organizational Agility

In the workshop Improving Organizational Agility, you will learn how to apply agile practices throughout your organization to develop the right products and deliver faster with better quality to serve your customers!

This is an online interactive workshop where you will practice and experiment in small groups to learn techniques and gain insights on how your organization can become more agile:

  • Practice how to create a psychologically safe environment that enables teams and empowers people to apply agile practices.
  • Learn ways to establish an agile mindset and adopt flexible and effective ways of working throughout the organization.
  • Create a culture that supports collaboration, and which motivates people to work together to create high-quality products and services.

The workshop is loaded with games, exercises, examples, and suggestions to help you increase your agility.

Many organizations are going through agile transformations. They are implementing Scrum or Kanban and using large-scale agile frameworks like Lean, SAFe, LeSS or DAD, hoping to better serve the IT needs of the business and to develop products that satisfy their customer’s needs. Unfortunately, many of those transformations do not always live up to the agile promise of delivering better products, faster, at lower costs.

Improving organizational agility isn’t easy. But it can be done!

If your organization is:

  • having difficulties adjusting itself to shorten delivery times
  • having products with quality issues and is losing customers
  • doing an agile/Scrum/Kanban transformation but not seeing the expected benefits
  • unable to remove barriers that are blocking cross-organizational collaboration
  • trying to adopt agile but finding it hard to change the culture and mindset
  • looking for ways to apply agile practices more effectively and needs help with that
  • not able to improve in small but meaningful steps
  • on an agile journey but unsure where to go next or what would be the best thing to do

then this is the workshop for you!
