Course Objectives

The goal of the Agile Cultural Change workshop is to provide participants with a solid understanding of the opportunities any organization can gain from improved agility as well as an appreciation of the risks and challenges of maintaining the status quo or a “go slow” approach to change.   There are technological changes anticipated in the coming years that will disrupt entire industries and remake the competitive landscape.  This program provides a broadband view of the opportunities as well as providing practical insights and applications for every participant who takes the program.  This is a 2-day workshop, but can be customized for your needs.

Benefits from Taking this Workshop
