We are in a constant state of change, where changes are getting more complex and happening faster. There are technological changes, economic changes, energy changes, social changes (just to name a few types) that, in turn, cause even more change in business models and relationships. Organizations must learn how to manage the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity of their environment (VUCA).

Traditional change management approaches are often not enough to successfully manage this new paradigm of continuous change. This course teaches students how to apply agile values, principles, and techniques to change management. An agile change management approach enables continuous learning of individuals and organizations in order to develop and maximize their capacity to adapt to change.


At the end of this course students will be able to:

  • Apply agile values, principles, and techniques in a context of organizational change
  • Understand the keys to enable cultural change
  • Overcome resistance to change using agile principles and techniques
  • Understanding the process of change as a continuous learning process in a VUCA context (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity)
  • Understand the keys to agile leadership and good communication in the processes of change
  • Involve the right people in change management
  • Use techniques and tools to successfully manage agile change
