"Inspirational and informative, providing powerful techniques to facilitate change"

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Attend the advanced ICAgile Certified Enterprise Agility Masterclass to gain a deep understanding of agility at the enterprise level by learning the cultural, structural, process and leadership perspectives. Join us on a public course or book a private session to be held at your business, anywhere in the world. 

How does an organisation become more responsive and more value driven? What changes will your organisation need to go through in order to be sustainable and successful? The AWA Enterprise Agility Masterclass will teach you the answers to these questions. You will learn how to design processes with agile in mind as well as how marketing, sales, finance should be engaged for business agility. You will also gain skills, tools and techniques to overcome common dysfunctions like handoffs and waste and how to design a system that supports high-performance, customer focus, and facilitates agility.

You will also have the opportunity to become an ICAgile Certified Professional in Agility in the Enterprise, the only course in the UK to offer this advanced certification.

This course can be taken alongside our other Enterprise Agile Coaching course “Coaching for Enterprise Agility” which teaches co-creating change with large groups of people.
