Agile ways of working differ dramatically from traditional ways of working. Understanding and mastering them does not only require practice but also a mindset change.
Training is an important contributor for enabling agile practices and the formation of an agile mindset.
MyBusinessAgility offers standard and customized training to support you in your agile journey.
As illustrated in the agile funnel model above, trainings are used heavily at the beginning of an agile journey to create awareness about agile ways of working with a broad audience within a business.
Often, this is done without a clear mandate or pressure by management in form of teasers to create interest.
Individual and teams who show interest in proceeding are then selected to form agile pilots and received additional training, workshops and coaching to succeed.
