Technology is moving at a fast pace, disrupting organisations and the ways in which we have worked for decades. When paired with other organisational challenges that are encountered in daily working life, it is increasingly more difficult to drive your organisation to change to meet these needs and challenges as they arise. One way in which we can prepare for change and equip our teams with the skills they need to thrive and adapt, is with agile training.
An Agile team can evolve and react more rapidly, meaning that challenges are more easily overcome and projects are delivered more successfully on an ongoing basis. Here are our top three tips to create agile working teams:
1. Focus on results
Placing emphasis on the outcome and not the process drives your team to work smarter, rather than adhering to processes that may not work for the project for the sake of procedure. It also empowers your team to make their own decisions and work more efficiently to achieve their objectives.
Collecting and curating feedback throughout a project ensures that you have a constant flow of communication. This helps your team to identify issues at an early stage, enabling your teams to react and change paths if required, reducing time spent and increasing team optimisation.
If your team are lacking the basic knowledge they need to work in an agile environment, this will cause problems for projects. It’s absolutely vital that team members have knowledge of the framework and that training is provided on an ongoing basis to allow teams to develop their various skillsets within that, particularly team leads and those in senior and management roles.
