The agile approach creates a resilience against unforeseen occurrences and applies robust systems to continuous improvement.

Attend this course, which has been specifically designed to be delivered virtually, to understand different agile systems and develop a more agile culture throughout your organisation. Learn how to target core users, and understand and implement the most effective agile tools.

Through the use of virtual breakout rooms that facilitate group work in smaller groups, gain a much better understanding of the different agile methodologies.

Take part in online exercises that will demonstrate different agile techniques.

There will be plenty of opportune moments for you to network, share resources and experiences with other delegates. Gain valuable contacts with other like-minded peers to create that invaluable support network to help apply agile within your organisation.

This virtual ‘Developing Agile Teams’ course allows your organisation to assess your structures and create simple, results-focused procedures that are based on clear business intelligence.
