What is Agile Change Agent?
The Agile Change Agent certification is based upon the book “Agile Change Management – a practical framework for successful change planning and implementation”. The book, authored by Melanie Franklin, renowned Agile & Change Management expert, provides an approach for managing transformational change initiatives using a lot of the ideas from the agile methodologies.
The certification is designed to bridge the gap between those that have studied the formal theories, models and methodologies of Agile project management and/or change management, and those who are looking for the practical application of effective agile and change management techniques.
It could also be an entry into the world of Agile and change for all those in the business who are impacted, but whose day job continues to be a “business as usual” role.
The purpose of this course is to support the ideas of collaboration, empowerment and self-direction that are core to Agile approaches. These ideas are also at the heart of effective change management. Unless people participate in designing, practicing and adopting the change for themselves, the change does not happen and benefits cannot be realized.
The certification includes a simple, repeatable lifecycle model which acts as the structure of any change plan. It provides questionnaires and checklists to help create the culture for effective change as well as the structural techniques for creating the plan and prioritising the work. The course includes techniques for the people’s side of change.
