Experts in business Agility

Business Agility refers to an organisation’s ability to respond to rapid market and technological changes. It enables companies to speed up processes and enhance quality in a cost-effective way across their organisation by applying the values and principles of Agile – an approach originally designed for software development and IT project management.

Certifications

Technology and consumer needs are changing faster than ever. Being adaptable and responding to changes quickly is one of the key attributes of successful companies today.

Teams and individuals need the right training to ensure Agile ways of working are implemented effectively, addressing the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) of the current business environment. Increasing the knowledge and skills of employees enables continuous growth and better execution of internal processes.

Orbium provides Agile certification classes for all levels of experience, from beginners to experts. We offer classes for employees from all areas of the business, including experienced technology specialists, and have the capability to provide training to companies of all sizes – from SMEs to large organisations.

The most valued aspect of our certification classes is that they’re delivered by experienced experts. Not only are they specialists in the theory behind Agile ways of working, they’re also practitioners who bring relevant case studies and real-world experience to each session.

To deliver the most up-to-date and appropriate certification, Orbium partners with organisations including Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), the International Consortium for Agile (IC Agile) and the Business Agility Institute. We can also deliver Scrum certifications from Scrum.org.

Please see below for an overview of our certification classes or contact us for more information.

SAFe® Scrum Master

Attendees gain an understanding of a Scrum Master’s role in a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) enterprise. The course explores this role in the context of the entire enterprise and

prepares attendees to successfully plan and execute a Programme Increment (PI), which is the primary way of aligning all levels of an organisation for a new software release. This includes learning the key components of Agile-at-scale development, how the Scrum technique is facilitated throughout the enterprise and how to execute an iteration.

Leading SAFe®

Attendees gain the knowledge necessary to lead a Lean-Agile enterprise by using a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) and understanding its underlying principles – derived from

Lean, systems thinking, Agile development, product development flow and DevOps. The five competencies needed to become a Lean enterprise are also presented. Additionally, participants learn and practise skills for supporting and executing Programme Increment (PI) planning events and coordinating multiple Agile Release Trains (ARTs).

SAFe® 4 DevOps

This course gives a comprehensive overview of the DevOps competencies required to accelerate time to market by improving the flow of work through a continuous delivery

pipeline. Attendees map the value stream through their current delivery pipeline and identify practices that will eliminate bottlenecks.

Participants gain an understanding of the complete process, from continuous exploration to continuous integration, continuous deployment and release on demand. Attendees also explore the SAFe® CALMR (Culture, Automation, Lean, Measure, Recover) approach to DevOps, which helps to create a culture of shared responsibility for delivering the solution. It enables managers to align people, processes and technology throughout the organisation to achieve faster times to market.

Implementing SAFe®

Becoming a certified SAFe® 4 Program Consultant (SPC) and a change agent enables attendees to coach and guide the enterprise to succeed in a disruptive marketplace.

During this four-day course, participants learn how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by leveraging the practices and principles of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®), as well as the five core competencies of becoming a Lean enterprise. Attendees also gain insights into – and practise – how to coach programmes, launch Agile Release Trains and build a continuous delivery pipeline within a DevOps culture, along with Lean portfolio management – i.e. applying Lean techniques to managing programme and product portfolios.

The second part of the training focuses exclusively on what it takes to successfully implement SAFe® across the enterprise.

Agile Fundamentals

To succeed with an Agile approach, teams and organisations should first focus on “being agile” as a foundation for success in “doing Agile”. IC Agile’s Fundamentals course explores key

concepts such as adaptive planning, value-driven development, team collaboration and frequent feedback for continuous improvement. It also covers the history of the Agile movement and the Agile Manifesto, Agile principles, as well as some widely applied frameworks and practices.

The ICP's learning outcomes focus on the Agile mindset, values, principles and foundational concepts. The aim is to achieve organisational agility without specific focus on any single Agile methodology or framework – i.e. Scrum, Kanban, XP, DSDM, SAFe® etc.

Training

Delivering results is not about improving the individual performance of the marketing, sales or service areas of a business. Rather, it relies on a company being able to transform and integrate all those strands to ensure a distinct market presence and effective growth.

Rapid disruption occurs throughout any business and requires fast-moving, cross-functional action. Agile ways of working respond to changing business scenarios and greater consumer and employee expectations, which are often influenced by digital advancements.

Orbium’s Agile training content is flexible and will be adjusted to your company’s needs and requirements. Our tailored interactive sessions include informative discussions and engaging activities, which can be adjusted to any industry, and our experienced trainers work with employees at every level – from C-suite executives to middle management and teams.

Our sessions give practical insights on how to improve business results and effectiveness. The business agility topics we cover can include, among others, leadership, finance, operations and marketing.

In addition to Agile, we also train groups in Scrum, Kanban and DevOps ways of working. Our goal is to guide your transformation by training staff in a way that drives business outcomes with speed and agility.

Leadership Agility

This workshop is for business executives, leaders and department heads.

It helps leaders understand Agile ways of working and how to

foster an Agile mindset within their organisations. Ideas and principles covered include the “shift to teal” (creating organisations without hierarchies), modern Agile, business agility principles, the Spotify method and other case studies in business and leadership agility. Leaders learn new ways to empower their organisations and make them more effective.

Agile Finance and Portfolio Management

The current era of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) demands that organisations deliver solutions faster, work cross-functionally and are more responsive to

customers.

Coaching

To ensure training and certifications are actioned and implemented effectively, we support partners and clients by providing professional Agile coaching.

Throughout the transformation journey, we advise and educate teams and individuals to ensure seamless adoption of Agile practices. One of our key competencies is taking people by the hand when they need extra support, while focusing on the need to develop self-sufficient teams.

Coaching can be implemented in companies that are in the early stages of applying Agile practices, as well as those that have already established a few Agile teams and are now looking to scale this up across their organisation.

Often, a crossover with traditional ways of working makes Agile teams far less effective than they could be and frustrates progress. Orbium’s methods help companies to scale to the second (Agile at scale) and third (business agility) waves of Agile and to prepare for the fourth wave: digital innovation.

Our services help you self-assess to identify how your organisation is doing on its Agile journey. We assist your company in developing the ability to adapt faster, provide regular increments of value and deliver consumer-focused results. To ensure companies progress, we encourage them to measure results and effectiveness.

Agile coaching is essential to the successful adoption of Agile. Points to note include:

  • Initial coaching focuses on individual Agile/Scrum teams
  • Multiple levels of Agile coaching are available: i.e. for teams, management and executives
  • Agile Scaling within the organisation
  • Three to Six months of Agile coaching is recommended for each newly launched Agile team
  • Number of coaching days depends on the team/requirement
