The benefits of Agile working

View in Finnish / Suomeksi

An Agile organization, from the employee’s point of view, means both freedom and awareness. Each person knows exactly what is expected of them and why. On the other hand employees have the freedom to choose how to accomplish tasks in their preferred way. Well-being at work improves since expectations are clear and people get to manage their own process for reaching goals. In an Agile workplace employees truly feel a sense of importance.

Agile can be taught and that is exactly what we have been doing for the past 15 years. Now we have condensed the lessons of experienced agile coaches into one online course, that can help anyone begin their transformation towards more agile ways of working and better wellbeing at work.
