Dynamic Agility with Business Driven Development

Dynamic Agility in Large Systems

Build Resilience in Complex Large Systems, with Dynamic Agility Master (DYA-M) Certification

During this three-day master class in Dynamic Agility in Large Systems, attendees learn how to build organizational resilience to react faster in constantly changing complex multi-year planning-horizons environments. Leverage tools and thinking models to de-scale while complexity increases in large systems. Define an Agile Product Organization launch with about 450 people, e.g., Solution Trains. Know how to develop & deploy multi-year Solution Roadmaps continuously. Recognize and co-create the first collaboration models to build and deliver large systems. Learn how to close the strategy and execution gap for hundreds of people working together. Manage critical dependencies in Agile Product Organizations, e.g., Solution Trains. Develop the skills to synchronize team events, roles, artifacts & collaborations in Solution Areas.

Customer Voices

“Great training experience with outstanding coaches, discussing real-world practices on how to apply a Scaled-Agile Framework delivering large solutions. In my opinion, this training is beneficial for everyone who is tackling enterprise-technology-driven transformations. The learning journey covered bulletproof leadership principles, business value drivers, and essential scaling elements, like designing dynamic value stream networks, building comprehensive system thinking, and state-of-the-art collaboration methods.” Hans-Jörg Neureiter, Interim Manager SAP Implementations

“My conclusion is that I was a bit linear in my approach in building ARTs and cascading it until Solution Trains. If complexity is becoming the next level for agility, we should face it with a complex setup like a solution area and de-scale to keep/establish dynamic and flexibility. I will incorporate it into my day-to-day work. It was great, guys”! Christian Hoffer, Head of Lean-Agile Centre of Excellence (LACE) at Migros
