Managing an agile workforce

Housing organisations are facing a number of business drivers for implementing more agile ways of working.

Managing an agile workforce

This course will equip team leaders and managers with knowledge and understanding about working anywhere at any time – supporting managers and team leaders to move from a position of seeing their team members every day (what time they start/leave work etc) to a position of managing by outputs and most importantly trust.

By attending this programme you will learn:

  • Techniques for managing agile teams
  • How to build trust
  • What good performance management looks like for people you don’t see every day
  • The importance of keeping in touch to maintain motivation
  • How to remain compliant around considerations such as health and safety.

Who should attend?

  • Team leaders and managers of agile or dispersed teams 
  • Anyone looking to introduce agile working in their workplace.
