AgileSHIFT is an AXELOS standard aimed at providing every function of an organization with knowledge and guidance to be able to understand, engage with and influence change by embracing agile and lean ways of working.

Research shows teams that have adopted agile ways of working are often inhibited from embedding these practices as other business functions including: Finance, HR, Operations, Sales & Marketing and Legal, are sometimes unaware why teams have adopted an agile approach, the benefits of it use or how they can support or work within an agile environment.

Agile awareness and guidance across the enterprise assists the adoption and intergradation of agile working practices across all business functions and aids change in a rapidly moving business environment.

AgileSHIFT is a tailorable, lightweight framework designed to support organizations to embed agile ways of working and develop a culture of agility to prepare organizations to adopt a ‘survive, compete and thrive’ mindset in an ever changing market place.


AgileSHIFT prepares the entire organization to adopt enterprise agility. It is suitable for everyone regardless of role, function or seniority. Particularly suitable for those who have not been part of agile awareness or formal training sessions and need to be part of, support or contribute to agile teams and prepare for transformational change.

There are no pre-requisites to attend AgileSHIFT training.
