How an agile mindset drives success in an ever-changing workplace

ABOUT THIS EVENT

The Skills for Success are a first of its kind series of hybrid learning workshops showcasing the skills essential for a successful career in the public service. The program has been co-designed with public sector leaders in driving the capability uplift required for the future of the sector. 

Each event will feature workshop-style interactive discussions with a subject matter expert and actionable strategies you can put in place today to uplift your capabilities in each area. 

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Driving success with an agile mindset

While once a specific style of working established for software development, fundamental agile principles can assist public servants of all levels and specialisations in adding value in your work and to your team. In a workplace environment changing faster than ever before, an agile mindset is essential in supporting the flexibility and adaptability required of the sector today. 

This session will explore the agile principles of customer centricity, iterative and purpose-built solution design, collaboration, retrospection and communication. You will leave the session with agile tools and strategies that you can utilise regardless of your career stage or the type of team you work in. 

This is an interactive session. For the best learning experience we encourage you to participate using the chat function and come prepared to take notes.
