Understanding and Facilitating Agility
Agile methodologies, once developed and used by software development teams, are now being implemented throughout entire organizations. Agile teams are small and designed to stay close to the customer and adapt quickly to changing conditions. Agility changes the way teams work, collaborate, and interact. The Agile environment creates new opportunities for leaders, coaches, and facilitators. This workshop will demonstrate the basics of Agility and the impact it can have on an organization.
In this workshop, you will learn:
- Where agile began and why.
- The language and principles of agile (“the scrum guide”).
- Why organizations strive to be agile.
- How to facilitate in an agile environment.
- How to facilitate agile training.
- How to facilitate agile ceremonies.
- The Lean Six Sigma innovation cycle.
