Description

Fortune 500 companies are urgently adapting Agile to their work, whether building eLearning or IT solutions. Unfortunately, just about everyone is a novice. Agility, collaboration and learning through mistakes is NOT the way most teams are used to working.  Training professionals have the unique ability to help grow a new Agile way for people to work together to serve the customer needs. 

Transitioning to an Agile philosophy, process, tools and mindset is a positive experience, but only after you let go of your Unconscious Bias to Hierarchy. The focus changes to:
  • Satisfying the customer
  • Embracing constant change
  • Creating working ‘stuff’ instead of lots of diagrams
  • Equal voice and contribution
  • Emphasizing face to face (not email) interaction
  • Choosing simplicity over everything
  • Constantly adjusting through reflection and learning
 
Training professionals are often more qualified to identify and shift culture, collaborate no matter what, and focus on the hard “Soft” skills – collaboration, communication and clarity. But traditional workshop will not be popular.  Learn how to transfer learning in small ways within the Agile process. 

In this session, you’ll learn to lead the charge by:
  • Building confidence in leading in the Agile space through in the moment learning.
  • Identifying how roles and norms are different in Agile and how they create anxiety in a hierarchical company
  • Learn from stories of others so you can use your training powers to lead your company through the rough cultural transition. Lead the people side of Agile to support your IT project success.
