AXELOS Global Best Practice has today announced the launch of AgileSHIFT®, a framework designed to help prepare organizations for transformational change. Taking a holistic view of organizations, the new best-practice guidance focuses on the importance of leading change through enterprise agility and overcoming known barriers1 to successful transformation.
This latest offering is the result of consolidated research and testing from world-leading organizations and governments from across Europe, the US, Australia and Asia. Driven and created by the custodians of PRINCE2®, ITIL® and MSP®, the new framework is supported by recognised industry experts, and globally delivered through AXELOS’ unique network of Accredited Training Organizations and Accredited Consulting Partners.
Peter Hepworth, CEO of AXELOS, said, "We are very excited to announce the launch of AgileSHIFT today. This new agile framework gives organizations a ‘cultural shift in mindset’ to be able to deal with the challenges businesses are facing in today’s disruptive and competitive markets. By enabling the whole organization to work in more agile ways immediately, businesses can start to adapt and pivot their ways of working to deliver in better and faster ways for their customers.
"The guidance and certified training has been developed in close cooperation with our international partners, and, so far, we have received very positive responses to the pilots and guidance that we have shared in the development of AgileSHIFT. We are convinced that this success and positive feedback will continue over the coming months with this launch."
Margo Leach, Chief Product Officer at AXELOS, continues, "In a world of ever-disruptive change and competitive threat, the importance of using best practice and utilising learnings from other businesses and industries is becoming more relevant than ever. AgileSHIFT is created from best practices that we know people are using to deliver transformational change in their organizations.
"AgileSHIFT goes further than providing best practice, it also provides people with the knowledge and guidance to be able to understand, engage with and influence change by embracing agile and lean ways of working. Those who take the certified training will be able to understand and be engaged with why change is important, talk confidently about what it means to be agile and lean and use the practical tools it provides to champion change within their organization."
AgileSHIFT seeks to help organizations overcome known barriers1 to successful transformation by providing practical and solution-driven tools and guidance that enables all employees to immediately start working in more agile ways. Easily tailorable, and designed to be quickly adopted, the guidance advocates the importance of addressing people and culture as well as utilising agile methods to equip businesses for transformational change.
