'Agile Working' has become somewhat of a buzz phrase in recent years. We know agile methodology can be used to create adaptable teams that are faster to respond and quicker to adapt to change. Creating teams that learn as they go, enabling organisations to provide the best service they can and adjust to ever-changing dynamics. 

But what does agile actually mean, can it be transferred to non-technical teams and organisations, and how do you do that? 

Overall aim

This session aims to:

  • give a brief history of agile methodology
  • explain the key difference between agile and traditional ‘waterfall’ project management
  • highlight what the benefits are to our teams
  • introduce the four main ‘tools’ that sit behind agile project management

Book on to the other upcoming sessions in this series:


Join Maddie Stark for our re-worked Adaptive agile masterclass series 'Adaptive agile: How to create responsive and sustainable teams' to learn how to adapt agile methodologies and in doing so how organisations can save time, money, and resources by providing information about our services in real time that push us to work better whilst freeing up space for creativity and innovation.  

Who was the event aimed at?

This course is aimed at anyone working in the voluntary sector with an interest in agile project management.
