Certificate in Agile Workplace Development
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” –Socrates
Our world is in a constant exponential state of change, with the pre and post effects of a pandemic, technology advances such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), polarized politics, changing trade policies, dwindling confidence in governments and corporations, political movements for climate change, migration, inequality gaps, changing demands of the workforce and consumer buying, etc... the list goes on.
These changes affect all aspects of our lives including the workplace. In recent years we have seen long standing traditional structures fall and new organizations soar. The idea of how, when and where we work are being questioned. An organization’s ability to adjust to the constant ebb and flow of the world around it, aid its success in an ever-evolving environment. Organizations today need to be agile in their approaches to business. They need to increase the use of the talent they have, develop their employees to handle increases in responsibility, as well as allowing them to make more decisions. While hierarchy and structure are still needed, an attitude of agility should be part of any organizations strategy to succeed.
Participants will have the opportunity to challenge their current beliefs and practices, using small and large group discussions, exercises, and case studies. Participants will learn new ways to approach their organizations and prepare them to adapt to consistent change.
In the Certificate in Agile Workplace Development, you will discover the challenges and windfalls of cultivating the agility of your workplace.
