Organizations are seeking growth and change as their markets, competitors, and customers evolve rapidly. Most organizations and individuals are skilled and well-focused in their day-to-day skills, but this does not suggest they have the knowledge, skills, or ability to create a coordinated and lasting change. Organizations need to be able to alter culture and thinking to remain competitive in this challenging environment. This course teaches how to create and empower this change within the organization.


Enterprise Agile Transformation LiveLessons presents a model and a defined plan to transform your organization. Agile and Change consultant Robert Annis presents the Model for Activating Change in your Organization (MACO). Robert walks you through the three phases of MACO--Assessment, Preparation, and Delivery--which are intentionally simple and intended to be continuously repeated. These phases, along with successful Leadership change (also taught in the course) are the drivers for environmental change and enablement.
"Genuinely one of the best training I've attended. One thing is to learn about concepts of agile, another completely different story is to know to successfully transform your organisation to move into agile ways of working, change its culture to agile. If your company is going through this extremely interesting but also challenging journey of agile transformation - I strongly recommend Enterprise Agile Transformation course to be taken by Leadership Team and Change Agents. It's a great combination of theory and practice - all delivered in a truly agile spirit by Robert - definitely worth your time."  -Anna Pajak, PMO Manager,  GSK
