      Course Overview

      The nature of leadership has changed. The top-down, directive style of leadership is not successful anymore in adaptive work environments. The 21st century requires a new kind of leader: lean, agile, adaptive, and innovative. In this program, leaders will understand their role in enabling agility in their organisations, and will learn how to create an environment that will allow teams to thrive with agility, innovation, and higher productivity. 

      This is a standalone workshop, meaning that no prior knowledge or certifications of lean agile thinking, business agility, or continuous innovation are required. However, this is not merely a beginner’s workshop. Having some experience with product development (in any role) will make attendance easier.

      The class will run in Romanian.
