Mass Training can Lead to Successful Implementation of AgileBy CIOAdvisor Apac | Friday, November 30, 2018
An agile workplace can be thought of as the one that facilitates resources to be shifted easily, disintegrates silos between several teams and departments in an organization, and delivers projects effectively and more efficiently. Although many organizations are drawn towards the idea of an agile workplace, they struggle to find a way to begin.
A training event encompassing all employees at once can be a beneficial starting point. A majority of organizations are known to make only a few key leaders and software developers undergo an agile training. This can prove to be ineffective because these people may return with ideas that can hardly be comprehended by the rest of the employees. On the other hand, training everyone at once—including those who develop software and the ones managing requirements for software—enables them to learn the concepts of agile together.

Furthermore, adoption of a new methodology demands a broad understanding of the idea from various perspectives across the organization. As a result, instructing all employees or at least those who will be implementing agile in their everyday work under a single roof seems to the best option for organizations. This will also facilitate constructive discussions between employees about the organization’s existing methods, processes, and products, along with the impact of an agile methodology on their organization.
Most importantly, mass training allows all employees responsible for software development to have their own voice in the organization’s transition to Agile methodology. They can put forth their ideas about the manner of transformation including the entire workflow as well as the minute details for a seamless and successful implementation of agile.
