About this Course

Kodak. Blockbuster. Nokia. Big businesses have failed to survive in a competitive and disruptive marketplace.

Increasing customer demand and expectation, the rise of disruptive competitors shaking up established industries, legacy processes that no longer fit in today’s environment, a company culture that fails to support rapid go-to-market.

These factors are all driving change and most organisations today know they need to transform if they want to survive.

AgileSHIFT, developed by global best practice providers AXELOS, helps prepare everyone across an organisation for transformational change. This offering provides staff with the knowledge and guidance to be able to understand, engage with and influence change by embracing agile and lean ways of working.

Taking a holistic view of an organisation, this easily tailorable, lightweight framework helps organisations on their change journey and to thrive in an ever emerging disruptive and competitive marketplace.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain why organisations need to create a culture of enterprise agility in response to a changing context
  • Start to think and work differently to enable change
  • Talk confidently about what it means to be agile
  • Use the easily tailorable lightweight AgileSHIFT framework to champion change within their organisation

Who is this course for?

The purpose of AgileSHIFT is to win over the hearts and minds of the entire organization.

This course is therefore targeted at both:

  • The “change enablers” who have been tasked by the organization to lead or be an active part of a transformation change business.

AND

  • Senior positions in functions that have an awareness of, and interaction with, agile delivery but are interested in learning more

Typical audience members include:

  • Transformation lead/manager
  • Change lead/manager
  • Coach/evangelist roles (could relate to agile)
  • Senior positions within Product Management, Portfolio (PMO), Finance, HR, Legal, Sales and Marketing, Commercial, Procurement and Operations

FAQs

What do you mean by virtual training?

When we refer to virtual (classroom) training we are meaning just that: delivering live training (not pre-recorded) with a trainer to wherever you are real-time – otherwise referred to as Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT). Our trainers are based in actual training rooms complete with training and AV equipment.

What will I experience during a virtual training session?

Your virtual classroom trainer has access to a variety of options to ensure effective communication and learning, both individually and as a group, including:

  • Changing how webcams are viewed
  • Screen sharing to display a document, presentation or other training content
  • Changing the view to make an attendee the presenter
  • Conducting polls and tests
  • Splitting the classroom into small groups for activities
  • Uploading materials

How do I interact with the trainer? Other attendees?

Collaboration and actively participating in a training session are essential. You can:

  • Raise and submit questions/comments to the trainer or other attendees
  • Use shared apps and drawing tools to collaborate with the whole group
  • Participate in ‘breakout’ rooms for activities/small group discussions
  • Share the trainer’s keyboard and mouse control

Note: Drawing tools, shared keyboard/mouse control and multi-monitor screen sharing are available on the installed desktop app only.

How long will a session be before I can have a break?

As virtual training is a very different experience to face-to-face training, each virtual session will be a maximum of 90 minutes (many sessions will be shorter), followed by a break. Your trainer will confirm the timings of breaks at the start of each day.
