Essence of Agility
Essence of Agility for Entrepreneurs and Executives

The aim of the course is to provide you with a clear, unbiased voice in the noisy cavalcade of “Agile”. With its concise, to the point, integrated presentation of agility, this training will help you in setting realistic expectations in creating and sustaining an agile organization. If you are new to agility, this course will equip you with a deep enough understanding to be able to make an informed decision whether it’s beneficial for your organization to pursue agility and if yes, how to start. If you are already well-versed in agility, the presented framework will serve you both as a communication tool and a guiding light in your everyday decision making.

Prerequisites: None, but you will make the most out of the sessions if you’re an entrepreneur, startup founder, or SME C-level executive

Training style and structure: The training is an informal, small-group intensive course designed to minimize the time and effort it takes to get a comprehensive picture of agility and the role of leadership in an agile organization. Each of the three modules contain a high-information throughput presentation and a free-form Q & A and discussion session. The course is followed by an optional consultation session with the trainer, focusing on the applicability of the course material to your specific situation.

Modules of the course:

1. What is the question, if agility is the answer?
2. The challenges of leading an agile organization
3. Creating and sustaining an organizational culture around agility
4. 1:1 consultation (optional, included in the price)

In order to apply for the recognition, you will need to set up 1:1 coaching calls with the trainer, who will help you mastering the Personal Agility System. The coaching calls are optional, included in the price of the course, and are only needed if you want to get the recognition of the Personal Agility Institute.

    Terms and Conditions (click to expand)

    General terms

    By registering for a public course of Halkeon Development GmbH, you agree to these Terms and Conditions. Training registration is binding as soon as you get a confirmation of your reservation. Registrations are processed in the order received.

    We reserve the right to change the course program, if we deem that it helps to achieve the goal of the course better.

    Course fees and payment

    The indicated price includes the participation on the course and the training materials sent to you electronically. It excludes travel, meals and accommodation.

     

    You get the invoice for the training along with our confirmation of receiving your registration. Payment is due upon receiving the invoice. You’re eligible to join the course once your payment arrives to our account.

     

    Some of our training have dynamic pricing. This means that the less available space left, the more they cost. This allows you to balance between urgency and cost, and us to keep the number of attendees small, while still delivering the training to participants who need it urgently. For a training with dynamic pricing we indicate the current fee, i.e. the fee for the next participant, which is subject to increase as the course is filling up. Prices are subject to change without notice, for both fixed and dynamically priced courses. These changes do not affect registrations that are already paid.

    Cancellation, rescheduling and substitution policy

    You can cancel or reschedule a training free of charge until 14 calendar days before the starting date of the course. Registrants who fail to attend but did not cancel the training within the cancellation period must pay the full registration fee.

     

    Rescheduling within 14 calendar days before the course is possible for an additional charge of 125 CHF plus the price difference between the course you’ve already paid and the new course, if the new course is more expensive. There is no refund available if you switch to a less expensive course.

     

    Registered participants can be substituted until 2 working days before the course’s start date.

    Rescheduling or cancelling from Halkeon’s part

    We do everything to keep to the dates of our courses according to the published schedule. We cancel a training only in two very rare occasions: 1) Vis major, e.g. illness of the trainer without the possibility of substitution, 2) If the number of participants drops to a single person, as discussions are an essential part of the learning experience. In such cases, you can choose between an alternate course date or a full refund.

    Participant data

    You agree to provide correct, complete, and up-to-date personal information. You agree that we process your data and that we may share this information with partners if required for processing your registration or holding the course. We do not make your data available to third parties for marketing purposes.

    Course photography

    During the course we might take pictures to document and promote the course on our marketing channels such as our website. By participating you give your consent to use these pictures on those marketing channels, unless you explicitly request otherwise.
