Change managers are under increasing pressure to deliver change at speed. They’re having to adapt to how IT and Digital projects are being delivered around them.

Senior stakeholders are looking to change managers to provide novel approaches to make change happen fast.

10/10 for Richard’s excellent facilitation. Good balance of input and practice. Very good energy management. Excellent listening and following-up on input from the group. Richard really focused on skilling up the audience. Thank you!

Thank you for a very good training - you were highly responsive to our needs in mixing theory with practice. I have planned a few experiments and I will also try some kanban boards. Would I recommend you? 100%

Great course - I was surprised by the level of value that it delivered. To be honest, I expected the "Lean, Agile" moniker to be an example of buzz word application. In practice, it delivered highly valuable techniques that I can apply directly... i.e. truly deserving the lean, agile term.
