In times of extremely volatile markets, the traditional methods and tools are no longer enough to tackle the challenges of the digital world. Individuals and companies need to adapt to changes in an agile manner, being able not only to follow trends but at best to trigger and lead them.
'Agile' is a mindset, a set of values and principles as well as several frameworks, and methodologies and tools. Originating from the software development industry, the agile way is applicable to any complex, uncertain and fast changing environment. It enables leaders from all sectors to be innovative every day. Growing in popularity, agile methodologies have been expanded and adopted in financial institutions, design firms, government offices and other places. With a flexible approach and the right starting base, this training course will support you in finding a way to make agile work for you.
This workshop will be held in English language.

What motivates me: Creating the right environment for individuals, teams and products to grow and stay at the edge of the future.
What I’d like to move and shake with this course: Create awareness of an innovative mindset and share the frameworks agile offers to approach culture, complexity and continuous change.
Experience I bring to the table: I have been part of many complex projects, in global corporations, middle sized companies, as well as working with startups. In these projects my role has varied, including project management, process management, team development, and organizational change. The one common denominator has been approaching these complex setups with the agile mindset and methods. Currently, I am the agile coach for HalloFreelancer at New Work SE (formerly XING SE). At HalloFreelancer, we strive for agility among all disciplines and structures to foster an innovative and customer centric approach to our daily work.
