Agile Change Agent

Build your practical ability in Agile and change with Agile Change Agent

Participants will learn about agile ways of working and how an agile approach impacts their role and interaction with those driving and leading change. The course also equips participants with tools to ensure change initiatives are embedded, adopted and deliver benefits throughout their organizations.

Less focused on the theories of change, it is a very hands- on course full of opportunities to “see, do, learn”, packed with exercises and practical tools, tips and advice, and is a great introduction to the world of Agile and Change Management.

Who is this course for?

This Agile Change Agent course will benefit anyone who has to plan, manage and participate in creating change at work. The course doesn’t assume any prior knowledge of change management or agile approaches so is suitable for all.

If you have knowledge of these areas the course will explain how what you already know fits into the structure of an effective change initiative whilst at the same time developing new skills and abilities. If you have a background in project management or business analysis this course will enable you to see where you fit into the wider community of change and where you can best apply your skills.

Training and certification will be particularly beneficial to those participating in Agile or transformational change, but aren’t necessarily responsible for leading it. These roles include:

  • Change Support (e.g. Programme Office)
  • Change ‘Agents’ (e.g. Business Change Managers)
  • Change Implementers (e.g. Project / Programme / Change Managers)
  • Change Leaders (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners)
  • Operational Line Managers/Staff would also benefit from a higher level of understanding

Resources

The following resources may be helpful when thinking about this Agile Change Agent course:

APM Webinar – Reducing resistance to Agile methods

One of the most common causes of resistance to adopting an Agile approach is a lack of understanding of the business benefits of Agile approaches.

Some of the greatest push-back comes from the concept of the evolving solution. To those who have little exposure to Agile methods, an evolving solution appears threatening. They are being asked to commit the money and resources to an unknown deliverable. There is fear that the Agile initiative, with its sprints and increments, is never-ending. One director recently queried if I was asking for an “open cheque book”.

If we want to broaden the adoption of Agile in our organisations, and unlock the full potential benefits, we have to take everyone with us. That means explaining, in business terms, what we are delivering and, critically, the many controls that exist within Agile to make sure we do what we said we would do.

In this webinar, presenter Melanie Franklin addresses the challenges put forward by those resisting change. Hear examples of how she has overcome these challenges and gained support from all levels within organisations for a move towards agile, adaptive practices. A perfect introduction to the power of Agile Change Management.

 

COURSE OPTIONS

  • Onsite
  • Virtual

ONSITE TRAINING

A two day training course and certification course designed to bridge the gap between the formal theories, models and techniques in Change Management and Agile Project Management, providing a follow on course for those with the qualifications and an entry point for those who need the capability but haven’t studied the subjects in depth.

What is the Agile Change Agent course and what does it entail?

This course is based upon the successful book “Agile Change Management – a practical framework for successful change planning and implementation. The book provides entry level access to the subjects of change management and agile management. It begins with an explanation of Agile concepts, which gives those involved in making change happen in their part of the business a link between their experiences of iterative change and the ideas behind Agile.

The course provides a roadmap or lifecycle model that helps them think through how they will manage the evolving changes that they are on the receiving end of, without having to become an expert in either Change Management or Agile. The course is divided into 4 parts to reflect the chapters in the book:

  • Concepts and roadmap
  • Business need
  • Relationship building
  • Environment

It is a very hands-on course full of opportunities to “see, do, learn”. The emphasis is on building capability using preprepared checklists, questionnaires and models that can be tailored to the context and content of whatever change you are involved in.
