Agile Organization (Coursera)
The theory of Agile is simple. However, it takes experience, knowledge, and expertise to scale it successfully. In this course, you will focus on leading change at an organizational level and scaling Agile appropriately. When studying Agile application success stories and theory, it's easy to think in terms of adopting "best practices." However, what's best for one industry, company, and most importantly, culture is not always the best for another. Not every aspect of the business is suitable for the application of Agile. Not every organization will benefit from adopting Agile, and not every leader will facilitate yet another change to success.

Syllabus


WEEK 1

Change Management Theories Part I

Knowing how to lead change in an organization is a critical skill for any leader to have. Regardless of the scope, complexity, and size of a particular change, you must be able to create a clear path to get buy-in from others on your team and in your organization. Where do you start? You start at the beginning, of course! When I say "at the beginning," I mean understanding conceptually how to look at change, chunk it into manageable pieces, and plan for its complexity.

In this module, you will begin to learn various change management models. My goal is to help you develop a well-rounded understanding of change leadership and change management. We will begin with a straightforward model proposed by Kurt Lewin and transition to McKinsey 7-S Framework.


WEEK 2

Change Management Theories Part II

In this module, we will continue to expand on change management. You will add five additional change management models to your toolbelt. They are Nudge theory, ADKAR, Kotter’s 8-step model, Bridge’s Transition model, and Kubler-Ross Five Stages Model. I will be sharing practical examples of how and when you use each model, and when to use them together.

By the end of the module, you should begin recognizing themes and patterns across all seven theories and start developing comfort and ease applying them to any project.


WEEK 3

Scaling Agile

Agile is a relatively simple theory. But how and where do you begin transforming a traditional organization? In this module, I will share a simple framework for starting on the path to an Agile enterprise and will explain three stages of Agile adoption as you start to scale it.

By the end of the module, you will be able to identify commonalities and differences between companies that successfully adopted Agile by looking at case studies of Amazon, Tesla, Target, Spotify, Netflix, and Salesforce.
