AgileSHIFT® will enable your organisation to:

  • Understand and accept the need for change – through understanding the risk of disruption but also the opportunity for change, and develop the internal ability to work effectively in such an environment
  • Understand and maximise Agile ways of working – through understanding why people, teams, and organisations are adopting these ways of working and focusing on delivering value early and having a customer-orientated deliver culture

Who should use AgileSHIFT®

AgileSHIFT® has been designed to be used by the entire organisation, regardless of role, function or seniority. Through enabling the whole organisation to learn and understand the value and benefits of agility, and where and how it should be adopted, the organisation can begin to transform.

Most organisations know that they need to transform, and work in a more “agile way”. However, a frequent problem is the creation of isolated agile delivery teams, unsupported by a wider organisational engagement initiative. These agile delivery teams need to interact with other business functions including, finance, HR, operations, sales and marketing, legal and many more. Often, these teams do not know why an agile approach is being used, the benefits associated with it, or how best to enable that way of working. Plus, their traditional working processes are not set up to support agile. This is where current approaches to organisational agility are failing.
