About the course

This workshop is designed to provide individuals with practical tools and approaches to support large-scale agile transformation efforts.

Coaching agile organizations (CAO) can be a challenging task, requiring patience, humor, and long-term commitment. It can take many years to discover how to make agility work within your organization. However, once you have gone through this process, you should be better equipped to respond more efficiently to changing market conditions.

This workshop, based on the book “Creating Agile Organizations” by Cesario Ramos and Ilia Pavlichenko, uses a mix of instruction and group activities. Participants learn to adopt agile at a large scale, avoid common mistakes, and use practical workshop formats to coach their organization in their journey.

In this 3-day workshop, participants explore how to guide an agile transformation and how to guide an agile organization redesign, from product definition, structure, roles and responsibilities to people practices.
