Grasping Agile to Advance Outcomes Beyond IT

Learning Tree Offers Live Webinar & New Certification Course Supporting This Enterprise Shift

HERNDON, Va., February 13, 2020 — To further support organizations that are undergoing an organizational transformation in the face of digital disruption, Learning Tree has announced two key opportunities for organizational staff of all levels and departments (including non-IT) to better understand the value and benefits of agility — an upcoming AgileSHIFT webinar and AgileSHIFT certification training. 

AgileSHIFT Transformation

According to a recent PwC survey, a quarter of organizations are facing a digital disruption that is causing them to actively redefine their business model and the way the organization operates.1  Hence, there is a shift toward organizational agility vs. IT agility, going from following rules and processes to achieve an outcome to changing the ways we approach work all together throughout the enterprise, so that the entire organization realizes the benefits of Agile. 

"Most organizations know they need to transform to work in a more agile way, but the creation of isolated agile delivery teams unsupported by wider organizational engagement leads to not recognizing the full value of agile," states Allan Thomson, AXELOS PPM Product Ambassador. "Enabling the whole organization to understand the benefits of agility can truly help your transformation take shape."

AgileSHIFT primes people for transformational change by creating a culture of enterprise agility and an understanding of agile ways of working.

Key Features:

  • 2-Day Instructor-Led Course
  • Exam Included
  • Attend In-Person or Online via AnyWare®


Who Should Attend AgileSHIFT Training?
AgileSHIFT has been designed to be used by the entire organization, regardless of role, function or seniority. Through enabling the whole organization to learn and understand the value and benefits of agility, and where and how it should be adopted, the organization can begin to transform.


"AgileSHIFT is exciting for a few reasons — first for the organization, this is a way of engaging with your people and offering them the tools to get small, valuable improvements done in a controlled and effective manner," said Duncan Wade, Learning Tree Agile Instructor and Course Author. "Second, for the people working in organizations — many will have heard of agile working practices that have transformed technical departments, and AgileSHIFT brings those practices to all teams. AgileSHIFT is agile thinking and working for everyone."

"We're excited to offer this new, holistic approach to Agile to our clients and attendees," said Jackie Visnius, Learning Tree Director of Product Management. "AgileSHIFT enables organization leaders to shift their whole organization toward Agile by equipping staff with the knowledge and guidance to confidently understand, engage with, and influence change by embracing agile and lean ways of working."
