Designing Agile Organizations
Are you ready to transform your organization into an agile powerhouse? As a leader, you know that being agile is key to meeting your customers’ needs. But did you know that your organizational design plays a critical role in enabling or hindering your team’s ability to adapt? By taking this course, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how organizational design impacts your team’s agility, and learn guidelines and techniques for designing an agile organization that supports your business strategy.
This 2-day course is about re-designing an organization into one that can respond effectively to market changes and delight the customer.
To quote John Seddon: “Culture Change is Free. People’s behaviour is a product of their system”. In this 2-day course, participants explore how to guide an Agile transformation and how it affects the organization design, from product definition, team composition, roles and responsibilities to your appraisal system.
This workshop, based on “Creating Agile Organizations” by Cesario Ramos and Ilia Pavlichenko, uses a mix of instruction and group activities. Participants learn to designing agile organizations, avoid common mistakes, and make informed transformation decisions for their organization.
