About the Course
Current market conditions and rapid changes are forcing many organizations to seek ways to remain competitive and relevant by responding quickly to customer needs. To this end, many organizations adopt the Agile mindset. These organizations have to recruit or train professionals who are familiar with the Agile mindset and the principles and methodologies derived from it. Emphasis will be placed on teams as team spirit is key to the success of the modern organization. Therefore, Team Building processes and the cooperation and communication between the team members and between teams should be increased.
The role of managers in the organization also varies. The manager was and remains a key figure in the organization but he/she becomes a “Servant Leader” that allows teams to be “self-managed.” Large organizations are also adopting the Agile concept to remain competitive. Large enterprises often adopt Scaled Agile frameworks that are designed to manage large-scale programs and projects.
