naked Agility Limited is a professional company, registered in Scotland, that offers training, coaching, mentoring, and facilitation to help people and teams evolve, integrate, and continuously improve.
We recognise the positive impact that a happy AND motivated workforce, that has a purpose, has on client experience. We help change mindsets towards a people-first culture where everyone encourages others to learn and grow. The resulting divergent thinking leads to many different ideas and opportunities for the success of the organisation.
We believe that every organisation deserves usable software on a regular cadence that delivers the highest possible value. Organisations are complex systems. They evolve over time and the current ways of working are a result of this evolution. We help an entire organization focus on value delivery and agree to new norms.
By reducing bureaucracy and command and control management, we believe that everyone will take responsibility for achieving the organisation’s goals. Our tailored blend of training, coaching and mentoring, gives people the opportunity to learn and develop, making the organisation, and its clients, successful.
On an evolution towards agility and becoming a great organisation, it is your people that will determine your success. We help the entire organisation agree on methods, goals and cultural values that will enable you to adopt a product-first approach.
We have learned from the success and failure of different organisations and their experiences of introducing an agile mindset. We want to help you transition to a world within which you can delight your clients.
In Scrum, a Stakeholder is anyone that is potentially affected by the outcome of the product development. Stakeholders can include users, customers, managers, sponsors, business analysts, subject matter experts, help desk, operations/support, project managers, auditors, and more. This course is intended for anyone in that cloud of interested parties who wants to learn more about Scrum, why Scrum works, what process and culture changes are involved, and a roadmap for implementing those changes. Regardless of where your organization is at in their Scrum adoption, this course provides the knowledge and opportunity to ask questions about your piece of that pathway to agility.
