Duration Two Days
Background You may know the basics of Agile. You may have run a pilot project or even have a complement of Agile teams already embedded. But the principles and methodologies are only half the story. How do you actually apply the theory, turn ideas into action and deliver real-world, practical value to your organisation?

Take the next step in your Agile journey and become an Agile Alchemist - transforming base metals into gold! Learn how to unlock the potential and power of Agile across your organisation - at the project, program, portfolio and Enterprise level. Then light the spark for complete Business Agility.

This two-day, advanced course will enable you to take Agile to the next level in your team and across your organisation. Mark out your whole Agile roadmap, from initiation to delivery and beyond. Explore practical strategies to scale up (SAFe, LeSS), how to manage multiple teams in an Agile framework and successfully interact with adjacent teams and organisational areas.
