Remember all the drama about the Spadina subway extension?
It ended up $600m over budget and nearly three years late.
Such budget blowouts aren’t restricted to massive infrastructure projects, Toronto-based organizations deliver projects late and way above original estimates all too often.
And hey, at least the subway goes to Vaughn now, many projects never get to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
And a large reason for this is their planning being more rigid than Hudson Bay in the winter.
With stiff competition from companies all over Ontario, across Canada, the US and worldwide, it’s more important than ever for enterprises across Ontario to be as adaptable as possible.
That’s what the Agile philosophy is all about
It’s all about flexibility.
It’s learning how to weather the proverbial storms like a Douglas fir
We’ve worked with companies like Bluedot, MetLife and Clifford Chance, and can help you adopt Agile principles to make the most of finite time and resources.
We’ll help you to break down projects into smaller chunks, use the feedback from each and deal with the unexpected roadblocks that pop up like prairie dogs.
Our pool of multi-disciplinary consultants and facilitators are based all over North America, and they’re ready to help you adopt the mindset that’s helped the likes of Uber, Amazon and Spotify consistently light the lamp with their projects.
If the rate of change is faster outside your walls than inside your walls, then your organization needs to adapt in order to survive.
Agile is about adaptability.
It’s about flexibility.
It’s about delivering value one small piece at a time.
Agile welcomes changing requirements, even late in a project.
Agile encourages creativity, motivates teams, and empowers them to respond to feedback as they go, so that precious time and resources aren’t wasted.
However, Agile is much more than a methodology.
Agile supports our need to be human at work: to belong, to learn, to do, to create, to grow, to improve, and to interact with other people. It makes navigating change your organization’s competitive advantage.
While many organizations suffer from analysis paralysis, and instead opt to hold lots of meetings, agile helps you move forward, and take the lead. Become an adaptable organization that does more doing than talking.
Our agile training can be delivered face to face, online or via a blended delivery model and can be customised to your organization’s unique requirements.
Participants are encouraged to bring real-world projects to the training and apply concepts learned in real-time to generate measurable business outcomes.
If your organisation’s highest priority is to satisfy customers in a rapidly changing world, then the agile methodology with its early and continuous delivery holds the key.
Agile forces us to welcome changing requirements, even late in a project. They force us to harness change as a competitive advantage. While other organisations are baulking at the prospect and cowering away from change, yours is driving forward, adapting to changing circumstances and capitalising as a result.
Did Donald Trump win the US Election because of a growing gap between the haves and the have nots? Perhaps. But his chaotic style and “say what I want, when I want” approach left many of his adversaries scrambling back to their advisors, looking to formulate their next words, by which point Trump had moved on to the next topic.
Making chaos and change your organisation’s friend.
By becoming an agile organisation, your organisation will become more collaborative rather than silo’d, it will become one that empowers its people rather than dictates to them, it will become an organisation that does more doing than planning and will focus on maximizing the amount of work not done by focusing on what absolutely needs to be done.
It will hone and foster these philosophies and continuously improve to become a value creator, rather than just an executor of process which most 20th Century minded companies have become.
We can give your employees the capability to think and act agile, both in technical and non-technical roles.
Our agile training can be delivered face to face, online or via a blended delivery model and be customised to your organisation’s unique requirements.

"A really good bootcamp on SCRUM! After sending our developers to Collective Campus' Scrum Bootcamp, we've noticed a remarkable difference in the team's application of Scrum. I particularly liked Collective Campus' hands on approach to training, and the customisation they were willing to build into the learning materials for us was very valuable."
"A great bootcamp session with plenty of information, examples, exercises and thoughtful conversations. I found the experience really helpful and we look forward to implementing a lot of our learnings in our process. I would recommend this course to teams who need to create change and innovate."
“Much appreciation also from all of us at ASB! This workshop and the take-aways will help us to help us navigate the uncertainties and ambiguity ahead.”
