This course is for anyone with a basic understanding of business agility gained through prior experience or study e.g. our Business agility foundations short course.
Some workplace and/or team-based experience will help you understand the content of the course in the context of a working organisation (of any size, sector, or industry).
It’s suitable for those who want to deepen their understanding of business agility frameworks and tools to develop ways to survive and thrive in complex and uncertain environments. It's also helpful for those looking to broaden their skillset and develop their own practical business agility for current and/or future roles.
The content in this course is suitable for a global audience and the skills you learn can be applied in a wide range of roles and types of organisations, whether in the public or third sector, large corporates, or SMEs.
If you'd like to discuss the suitability of the course, please contact us.
This course will take around 48 hours to complete and you can learn at your own pace. As a guide, if you set aside four hours per week, it would take twelve weeks to complete.
You can begin learning at any time. You will have a minimum of six months and up to 18 months to complete the course, depending on your registration date.
