In this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world, many individuals and organizations struggle to keep up with the rapid pace of change. The ability to adapt will separate not just successful organizations from those that will fall to the side, but also those in the workforce who will either thrive or fade.

Agile Leadership: From Strategy to Execution will unpack the latest thinking to successfully navigate agile transformations. Through this certificate, participants will gain crucial insights into agility that they and their organizations can implement from day one. Come prepared to engage in the latest thinking on agile best practices, including interactive exercises and case examples across sectors that highlight the benefits of nurturing a winning organizational mindset and culture ready to adapt to a world of increasing competition for customers and talent. Participants will leave this immersion with a clear understanding of why it is essential for leaders across sectors to understand aspects of both strategic and operational agility, and learn how to draw on these skills to scale success across teams.
