Limited Capacity seats available

Are you pushing your organization to master Agile skills? Do you have the knowledge but not everyone in your organization does? Do you want to develop novices into experts? Do you want to create new products and services, but lack an organizational culture which promotes innovation? perhaps an apprenticeship program is right for you, one that is focused on innovation.
An apprenticeship program will secure the qualified professionals our organizations need by providing the experience our industry’s current model lacks. By allowing apprentices to work on projects without “real” clients been involved (safe to make mistakes) with minimal investment we will be able to develop their core competencies while they work on something creative that could potentially become a new product or service.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Understanding the apprenticeship paradigms
  • How to get started with an apprentice program
  • Lessons learned from managing an apprenticeship program
  • Principles to base an apprentice program on
  • Apprenticeship ROI
  • How to embed innovation in an apprenticeship
  • Benefits of apprenticeship innovation.
