Agile at Scale will help you assess and leverage hybrid Agile approaches, teach you to determine your organization’s readiness to scale, empower you to mitigate challenges with synchronized deliverables, and the gain the special leadership skills needed when dealing with decentralized decision making.

During this program, you will also examine successful and failed large-scale rollouts in both case studies and simulations. With a network of your peers and Agile coaches, you’ll develop your own rollout action plans.

Course Pre-Work and Post-Work: The four modules may consist of assessments, discussion forum exercises, videos, and/or reading assignments. Additionally, each module requires post-work application action planning, exercises, and/or self-reflection. Please allow two to three hours to complete these items each week.
