About the Event

Agile People Fundamentals training covers three perspectives:Individual perspective (YOU)

  • Knowing yourself and why you do what you do
  • Helping others find their perfect place in the organization taking their personality and situation into account

Team perspective (WE IN OUR TEAM)

  • How to increase the pace from immature to mature high-performing teams, using  skills for communication and conflict resolution
  • How to grow and develop teams to be independent and empowered to make their own decisions, for example about their contribution to the organization's goals or their salaries

Organizational perspective (ALL OF US)

  • How to balance an agile culture with an agile structure by providing enough support for emerging strategies where all people are involved in setting the direction (via OKRs or other kinds of relative targets)
  • How to work to change behaviors – accomplishing an agile mindset and culture through removing limiting structures (budgets linked to fixed performance targets and rewards)
  • Create a Learning organization where it's ok to make mistakes and learn from them (requires a platform of Psychological Safety)
