Description

Beyond projects: Agile as a culture

Agile’s appeal now reaches far beyond the world of IT; proving very effective at developing innovative solutions to the wicked problems we experience in public services.

Public sector leaders love Agile – and they are recognising that it should go together with a leadership capacity that can deal with complexity. On top of this, they want to build a broader culture of agile, self-managing teams (Teal type organisation).

When dealing with complicated problems, the leader is expected and rewarded for knowing the answer. When there isn’t always a definitive answer (and there is complexity), leaders need to mobilise their organisations and enable
more self- managing teams.

Learn about Agile beyond IT; developing a broader Agile leadership and culture and how organisations such as the Dutch social care organisation Buurtzorg, the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, a US Care Health Trust, and Government Digital Service have been on and survived the journey.

Cost: £174 (including VAT, £145 excluding VAT). If you would like to pay using an alternative method then please contact luke.faulkner@basis.co.uk.
