Adapting the organization, management and operations

  • to understand Agile principles and fundamentals and associated issues
  • to grasp the organizational, managerial and operational impacts
  • to share concrete examples from companies developing products and services
  • to anticipate the key success factors of deployment and change
  • to determine the applicability and the level of agility appropriate to the maturity and the stakes of their company.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 2 days (14 hours) and includes:

  • An exploration of principles and issues in a didactic and fun way (serious game)
  • An overview of methods, tools and approaches to implementation
  • Illustrative examples and feedback from recent achievements
  • Practical situations.

GENERAL APPROACH :

The Agile principles and fundamentals were formalized in the 2000s with the rise in software development and the need to deliver in a short time in a competitive environment where innovation dominates and needs evolve very quickly.

Designers of complex products, services and systems understood the value of the approach but encountered organizational, managerial and operational challenges. How can agility be applied to the entire organization or to a multi-project environment, beyond the software teams?

This course looks at agility in a business transformation dimension, addressing organizational, human, managerial and process impacts. It introduces the traditional Scrum method and extends agility to agile team synchronization issues, timing and convergence of technical decisions, and emphasizes learning.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to establish an Agility roadmap appropriate to the maturity and stakes of their company.
