'Agile for Business' for non-technical people is designed to give you a broad introduction to Agile principles, methods, roles and leadership. This program is targeted at those working in areas related to technology, but that may not be working directly on the technology themselves (e.g. programming, software development).
While Agile is closely related to technology and software, its principles are also broadly applicable beyond technology. After taking 'Agile for Business,' you should be able to recognize the benefits of Agile for technology teams and for other types of organisations. You should also be able to apply and benefit from the flexibility of using Agile methods in your own work.
This program is completely hosted on Gnowbe, a mobile micro-learning app that is available on Apple iOS and Android. It provides bite-sized content (10-15 minutes per day) and includes experiential learning actions using multiple media like personal reflections, peer to peer learning through team chats, articles, videos, and out-of-app actions to deepen learning.
It's the first app of its kind where learning is made tangible through practice and application. It's self-paced so you can learn at your own pace. It takes about 10-15 minutes a day and on average 1-2 months to complete one program. The digital Certificate of Completion can be shared on your LinkedIn profile.
