Course overview

Agile methodology has been proven to foster best possible outcomes in countless tech-driven organisations. Now, the smartest businesses and business leaders are taking these disciplines and utilising them for broader operational excellence through more effectively developing new products, executing project work and making better strategic decisions more quickly.

As established organisations continue to be challenged by start-ups from around the globe, and customers become more demanding thanks to greater choice and options than they’ve ever had, all organisations must develop their ability to quickly and effectively adapt if they’re going to survive and thrive into the future.

FAQs

Get answers to our most commonly asked questions.

What support do I get?

Beyond a dedicated instructor and program manager you can reach out to, and a small, curated cohort you’ll move through the course with, you’ll be part of a community of like-minded individuals that is thousands strong! Upon completion of the course, you’ll also become a part of our alumni, who receive facilitated introductions to industry, and invitations to events and networking opportunities.

What do I get by completing the course?

We provide certification that you have completed the program which you can proudly display on your resume, LinkedIn or anywhere else. However, this in our opinion is only the smallest part. By completing the program you’ll be developing a capability which will take your career further and move you closer to achieving your goals.

If you’re interested in official accreditation speak to us about our university partnerships.

How do the coaching sessions work?

Coaching sessions are arranged between the course instructor and the participant for times and dates that are mutually convenient. Coaching may take place over the phone, by video call or in person, depending on the preferences and location of each party.

The purpose of the coaching sessions is to provide personalised support, accountability and feedback to ensure you get the most out of your learning. Each coaching session will have a specific agenda focusing on your individual learning project and allowing time for questions, deeper exploration of class content and reflection on learning.

Are you an RTO or a university?

No. We have very purposefully not gone down this pathway so we can continue on focusing on the most up-to-date, industry relevant content and experiences – rather than being confined to some policies which in our opinion, don’t add value to our students.

If you’re looking for official accreditation though, please ask us about our partnerships.
