Be The Change: Implementing Agile on the L&D Team

This On-Demand event was originally presented on August 30, 2023 (60 min)


Agile is renowned for its adaptability and responsiveness; it provides a framework for adapting to change. By working closely with project sponsors, we ensure the delivery of implementing Agile is precisely what learners truly need. In a rapidly changing environment, the Agile mindset helps us harness change for good rather than resist it. The Agile techniques offer solutions for making constant change a practical reality. Rapid iterative cycles of design and evaluation allow us to test our solutions before full implementation, opening the doors to constructive change along the way.

And yet, software development projects face different challenges and have different needs than instructional design projects. Strictly implementing Agile methods may not apply to your L&D work, and you’ll need to thread that needle as you implement this on your team.

In this session, we’ll take a change management approach to what it takes to implement Agile – the LLAMA® approach – in L&D teams. We’ll start by identifying a business case for change and getting buy-in from leaders, stakeholders, and your team. We’ll then look at preparing the team’s skill sets and roles before turning to the processes and tools you’ll need for a successful rollout to start implementing Agile. Of course, along the way, you’ll see how to take an Agile approach to your Agile implementation, picking a first team and a first project for your new process. Additionally, we will equip you with the Agile skills necessary to embrace this transformative challenge confidently.

Attendees will learn

  • How to make a case for implementing Agile as an L&D approach on your team (not just slapping IT’s Agile on your team!)
  • Describe what Agile means in an L&D context because it’s not just more, faster, with fewer resources!
  • Prepare your team for using Agile mindsets and skillsets.
  • Prepare your leaders and stakeholders for what to expect from your team when you’re using Agile methods.
  • Prepare yourself as a leader to take on this challenge to implement Agile.
  • Make an Agile plan for implementing Agile to your team.
  • Pick a first project and a first team for using Agile methods in your work.
