Agile PM in Traditional Organizations

April 3 @ 13:00 - 16:30
CHF350 – CHF450

While a lot of companies took first steps towards Agile Product Development, most agile teams are confronted with a „non-agile“ environment. This workshop explores important aspects for agile teams that need to collaborate with a non-agile organization. We will discuss how to deal with dependencies, how to avoid typical pitfalls and how to take the next relevant steps in your setup.


Who is it for?

Product Managers, Product Owners and other product people in traditional organizations who are involved in or about to start with a Agile Product Development initiative.


Key Takeaways

  • How to communicate with (non-agile) stakeholders
  • Dependency management to other teams
  • Explore „the art of the possible”

What we will achieve & practice

  • Using roadmaps as a communication tool
  • Knowing pitfalls in collaboration with non-agile teams
  • Understanding the importance of „Done“ product increments


Individual Follow-up Coaching Option

To maximize the value of this course for your organization, we offer an additional follow-up coaching (60 minutes, remote) just for you or your team a couple of weeks after the course. That way, you get to ask all the questions that might have popped up once you tried implementing what you learned in this course. We are going to contact you to set the specific date for your individual follow-up.

The follow-up coaching is available for CHF 350 and includes 30 minutes of preparation for your specific questions or documents (sent upfront) and 60 minutes of remote coaching via video call for you or your entire product team.

You can book the Follow-up Coaching Option in our booking form before proceeding to the checkout.



All participants will receive a Product Academy Certificate for this course.  



CHF 390
