Spreading the Agile Mindset Masterclass

Leading Transformations

Are you responsible for helping lead an Agile Transformation?  Executive, Agile Coach, Consultant, Scrum Master…

Then you already know that spreading an Agile Mindset is key to your success.

You also already know your core agile training did not quite teach you how to do this well, or why – but we do.

Spreading the Agile Mindset Masterclass” is a special offering created for seasoned Agile Professionals demonstrating exactly how to spread an Agile Mindset beyond the teams and throughout your entire organization.

Spreading the Agile Mindset is Essential

You already know an Agile Mindset is vital to successful Agile transformation! When those outside your Agile teams think with an Agile Mindset they naturally:

  • Support, and do not undercut, your agile progress
  • Increase agility across their teams
  • Achieve the larger value-driven objectives of the entire organization

Spreading the Agile Mindset Masterclass teaches how to outreach to your entire organization.

  • Making everyone allies in your agile transformation 
  • Spreading agility without formal agile processes
  • Securing the funding and support needed for Agile teams
  • Generating a positive ROI for other departments
