Workshop Overview And Benefits
If you work in or with organizations in any role, you know things are always far more complex than they seem. Whether you are a coach, a leader at any level, someone who has to juggle multiple needs, or already an expert in your field, you come across seemingly impossible challenges every day. How do you respond to constant change? How do you adapt to a dynamic and dangerous market? How do you truly change an organization? How do you deal with big ideas like culture and leadership that have immediate effects on your operation? Join agile42 trainers Andrea Tomasini and Giuseppe De Simone to find out more about ORGANIC Agility, a coherent approach to enabling resilience that helps you to move away from impossible plans and methods that don’t work for you, towards an acceptance of complexity and a recognition of how to actually manage change.
Leaders at any level, change agents, transformation managers, trainers and coaches, managers of deliveries of any form (project, program, service, or release), development and operation and security engineers, compliance and quality assurance and human resource personnel.

Day 1: ORGANIC Agility Foundations
During this day there will be space to ask questions and get an introduction to the ORGANIC Agility principles and ways of applying them in your organization. This 1-day training schedule is divided into 2 parts.
Part 1: Understanding the context, the reason for existence, and framework of ORGANIC Agility. In this section, we will go over the real-life challenges a company faces and place them in the context of current market changes. Then, we will talk about protecting an organization against the unpredictable. We will cover the concept of resilience and the role organizational culture plays in achieving it. Finally, we will introduce the ORGANIC Agility framework and the understanding of an organization as a living thing, composed of multiple complex parts and able to change and evolve, as opposed to a mechanical, engineered system. This section will also go briefly over the core principles of ORGANIC Agility.
Part 2: This workshop is not just about creating knowledge, but also about seeing how it works in practice. As a result, the second part of the workshop will consist of an immersive, in-depth simulation that will take you through all of the ORGANIC Agility principles, one by one, and will lead you through developing the capabilities of a model example, so that you will be able to visualize how they could apply to your own organization over time. This experience is designed to offer both the knowledge and the lived example that can help shift mindsets and prepare the ground for the work of growing towards resilience.
Day 2: ORGANIC Agility Foundations Masterclass
If you are a consultant, an internal coach or you are just interested in the science, theories, and patents on which our frameworks are based, the masterclass is the right way to dig deeper. The masterclass can also give you access to an expanded toolset. Through that deep dive, plus practice and training experience, you can reach three different accreditation levels, which enable you to teach your own ORGANIC Agility classes and certify the attendees. It is the first step towards becoming an ORGANIC Agility Professional and part of the ORGANIC Agility network.
It includes a detailed examination of the new ORGANIC Leadership Framework that connects attitudes, behaviors and context to arrive at an understanding of leadership for the complex times we live in, and a closer study of the Cynefin Framework, an award-winning support for decision-making and context awareness that helps leaders take action as well as communicate effectively.
The Masterclass also looks more closely into organizational culture and understanding what it is and how to measure and change it.
Connected to that, the second day takes the first step into the assessment of Leadership from an ORGANIC perspective and the practices of active and accelerated learning that our workshops use.
Completing the masterclass day will lead to an ORGANIC Agility Professional certificate.
