Agile People Fundamentals


Engage in this experience and gain both knowledge and practical skills to bring forward new ways of working and being in a leading position to creating lasting change, engagement, and a truly empowered workplace. 

Program Content

Introduction to Agile People and important principles/tools

The foundation of Agile People's' mindset is about the principles, values, methods, and tools that we need to start using to release competence and innovation – and what we stop doing. We discuss your challenges and certification assignment.

Psychological safety as a foundation for a learning organization

The importance of an approach that is permeated by security and confidence to increase profitability and innovation – to increase creativity through a culture where it is ok to fail and try again. We play "The Psychological Safety Game" to facilitate dialogue about difficult topics

Emerging strategies, structures, and goals

Emerging strategies instead of long-term planning, new ways of working with strategy, budgets, goals, performance processes, and rewards. Using value stream mapping to optimize flows in a system instead of working with resource optimization and sub-optimization of departments. Mindset Slider exercise. WoWs to be used: Beyond Budgeting, OKRs, Impact Mapping, VSM, etc.

Building conditions for agile culture

Creating conditions for a fantastic culture where people can perform at their optimal level with a sense of being supported and secure. The gap between structures and culture/values. Structure – Culture Misfit Role Play. The importance of country culture for an Agile transformation.

Creating Conditions for Change

Understanding the dynamics of complexity and change; the learning organization as Strategy and the future role of HR and managers.  Getting familiar with the use of the Cynefin model, Wicket Problems, and the use of Boundary Spanning to increase cross-border collaboration and increase the opportunity to create a fantastic organization together. Tips and examples for the change journey and how HR and managers need to change their role to support it.

These books written by Pia-Maria Thoren are included in digital format.


Course Leaders

Your course leaders and facilitators will be:

Hilda Färnsveden and Oscar Reyes

Online Delivery

This course is available online.  Before our first session, you will receive access to the Agile People Learning Management System where you will access all of the course content, workbooks, and supporting materials.

We are working with different virtual tools. We will provide you with guided information to access all of the various tools prior to our first session as well as on-going throughout the experience. 

There will be some work to be done after every session, so this class will need your full attention during these intensive days. The certification assignment can be accomplished in the time between the sessions so that you will be ready on the day of the last session. But in this intense tempo, we recommend that you do the assignment after the training has stopped.
