Impact

On your business

  • Greater focus on company goals and outcomes- agile working is an iterative way of working- meaning there is the opportunity for constant check-ins to ensure that all team members are working with a laser focus on the objective.
  • Improved client involvement and satisfaction- by working in sprints, it ensures regular and consistent input from the client, allowing teams to respond to changes and ensuring that the outcome is in line with the client’s vision.
  • An emphasis on improvement- sprints allow team members to receive feedback earlier on in the project, minimising time wastage and ensuring that the outcome is as refined as possible.
  • Efficient working- everyone involved in the sprint can see progress across the team, ensuring they can plan and coordinate their workflow with other members.

As a result of this workshop participants will

  • Understand the benefits and challenges to both agile and traditional ways of working
  • Recognise where agile ways of working could be beneficial to their team
  • Be comfortable using agile tools such as sprints and scrums in their work going forward
  • Identify practical actions they can take to better align with the values of agile working.

Agile working is an iterative way of working that gives greater flexibility, in line with certain principles. These principles allow and encourage team members to be more responsive, to flex and adapt to challenges quickly, to learn from mistakes and to be more “in the moment” in how they work. 
This can have huge benefits for both the individual and the organisation, helping to develop ways of working that are better suited to our fast-paced, ever-changing world. But how does “agile” work?

This workshop explores the key components of agile working and how they are put into practice within the workplace. Participants will examine the differences between agile working and more traditional ways of working, while acknowledging the benefits and challenges of each. Agile working is not a one-size fits all approach, and participants will have the opportunity to consider how and when the practices would best fit into the workplace by exploring the four principles of agile working. They then take a deeper dive into the role of scrums, sprints and stand ups, equipping them with some key, practical actions that can be put in place.
