Professional Agile Leadership

What is this course?

The Professional Agile Leadership (PAL) is a 2-day hands-on workshop that uses a combination of instruction and hands-on exercises to help managers and other leaders who work directly with agile teams understand how to best support, guide, and coach their teams to improve their agile capabilities.

The workshop provides a foundation for the role that leaders play in creating the conditions for a successful agile transformation. Leaders and managers are critical enablers in helping their organisations be successful, yet the role of leaders and managers in an agile organisation can be quite different from what they are used to. This workshop uses a combination of instruction and team-based exercises to help participants learn how to form and support agile teams to achieve better results, and how to lead the cultural and behavioural changes that organisations must make to reap the benefits of an agile product delivery approach.

What will you learn?

To succeed in a changing world, organisations need to become more agile, more responsive to customer needs and market changes. This workshop will equip leaders and managers to help their organisations change by providing participants with:

  • An understanding of how agility can help you improve your organisation’s performance
  • An understanding of how you, as a manager or leader, can help your organisation achieve the benefits of agility
  • An understanding of how culture and values influence your organisation’s ability to reap the benefits of agility
  • Practical skills for helping to guide and coach agile teams, and to help them remove impediments
  • An understanding of how to measure the benefits and impacts of agility in your organisation

You will understand where and how agility can help your organisation improve, by addressing challenges you can solve in no other way. You will also understand how agile teams work and what you, as a manager or leader, can do to help them to improve. You will also be able to quantify the benefits of improving the agility of your organisation through concrete measures.

What topics will be covered?

Becoming an agile organization is a profound transformation that requires senior leaders, middle managers, and agile team members to change the way that they organize their work, manage that work, and measure the results of the work.

Agile teams cannot do this on their own; they need help from the entire organization. The changes for all involved are profound, but so are the results when everyone’s goals and ways of working are aligned.

Throughout the course, the following topics will be covered:

  • Theory and Principles
  • Improving Value Delivery
  • Value – The “What”
  • Culture – The “Who”
  • Professionalism – The “How”
  • Scaling
