  • Explain the importance of learning in an agile organization.
  • Describe how to create and use a training program that is effective and has a good return on investment.
  • Explain the importance of recognition in an agile organization.
  • Describe how to create and use a recognition system that helps to improve the organizational culture and improve employee loyalty.

The workshop is designed to be interactive, getting the students involved in role playing, team activities, and designing a list of next steps to be executed after the workshop to keep the skills learned in active use and to leverage those skills to make a real difference in the organization.
