DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR...?
You won't find the experts you need for your products and projects on the labor market. You need experts who can bring their knowledge into the company and pass it on.
Are you looking for ways to distribute the expert knowledge of individuals among many employees? Do you want your employees to contribute their knowledge to the company in the long term? Do you need a community that organizes itself and continuously develops and passes on its knowledge?
We want to introduce....
THE AGILE LIVING MOVEMENT
A WAY INTO THE SELF-ORGANIZED LEARNING ORGANIZATION
Train internally interested employees to become experts who can contribute to the desired change as multipliers for their ideas in the company.
We support you so that you do not have to fill the employee gaps permanently with external employees and build a self-organized Agile Living Movement program with you, with which you have a closely networked community in one to two years, which can drive the program internally itself.
WE HELP YOU TO BECOME INDEPENDENT FROM EXTERNAL
We would be happy to introduce Agile Living Movement to you... Get in contact!
BUILD UP YOUR REQUIRED EXPERTISE IN YOUR COMPANY
Agile Living Movement is the framework for collaborative learning with coaching and mentoring.
We currently offer programs on Scrum, Nonviolent Communication and Leadership with Agile Living Movement.
Together with your experts, we can develop and put together the learning content your organization needs and wants to sustain. Then we introduce Agile Living Movement to you and accompany you until your experts can take over our tasks.
WE HELP YOU TO BUILD UP NECESSARY KNOWHOW INTERNALLY...
PRINCIPLES OF AGILE LIVING MOVEMENT
Our highest priority is to establish self-organized learning and working in the organization. This will enable us to deal appropriately with the challenges ahead, which will serve a successful future for the organization.
The Agile Living Movement program provides a base for motivated individuals so that personalities, teams and a community of experts can continue to grow and share their knowledge throughout the organization.
Agile Living Movement uses a lightweight framework. Each generation develops its own self-organized learning and problem-solving space so that it develops strategies that support dealing with the unknown, uncertainty, and change.
Agile Living Movement imparts expertise within the framework of your required learning objectives. As multipliers, participants spread the needed know-how throughout the organization.
Unlike certification training, the program provides the space to learn the content within a learning peer group, apply it to their Scrum teams, and reflect with learning peers to support sustainable application.
Individual mentoring in a close 1:1 relationship supports the expansion of the learner's skills and provides reflection to guide personal development so that participants create value in their development in the best possible way.
Agile Living Movement lays the foundation and supports the growth of a vibrant, cross-role community. As a result, collaboration, sharing, and learning continue beyond the program.
Agile Living Movement builds bridges between departments and [your organization's] business units, strengthens the loyalty of motivated colleagues, and attracts new colleagues.
Graduates of the Agile Living Movement program bring their knowledge and skills as new mentors to the organization and to future Agile Living Movement generations. They help the business units create sustainable value for a successful future of [your organization].

Junior employees and career changers are suitable candidates for Agile Living Movement. The important prerequisite is that the participants work in a team from the beginning, in which the expert knowledge is used. This allows them to immediately try out what they have learned in everyday life and to reflect on and further develop it in the Agile Living Movement community.
TIMEFRAME OF AGILE LIVING MOVEMENT
The cycle for a generation in the Agile Living Movement program lasts about 6 months as a participant and another 6 months as a mentor. This creates a cycle of learning, deepening and passing on know-how in the program.
After 2-3 generations, participants can continue the program internally and independently of us.

BENEFITS OF AGILE LIVING MOVEMENT
THE LEARNING ORGANISATION
In times of faster change, a permanent learning culture is not only necessary for innovation - continuous learning and further development is also needed to adapt to the changing market.
With Agile Living Movement a learning culture is developed and carried into the company. Through the promotion and development of multipliers, knowledge is carried into the company and anchored in various places.
THE MENTOR JOURNEY
Agile Living Movement thrives on the interaction of participants and their mentors. All participants can become mentors for new participants in the following generations.
As a mentor, the focus is on knowledge transfer, coaching and lateral leadership. Self-management is an important component of successful collaboration. Mutual, active leadership as needed are helpful skills in this regard.
The mentoring journey in the Agile Living Movement provides a protected space with reflection, feedback and learning - as a basis for effective leadership in the work context.
External and freelance employees are more expensive than internal employees. They can also only stay with the company for a limited period of time. A high effort of onboarding and offboarding ties up time and money.
Agile Living Movement builds internal expertise. The program makes it possible to rely more on juniors in recruiting, because they can be built up specifically in the program.
With our offer, training costs can still be saved because the experts and mentors pass on their special expertise.
Agile Living Movement develops a strong learning culture and community for future collaboration.
Each participant, after completing the program, can be further developed as a mentor in the next cycle. This represents an effective step from knowledge-receiving to knowledge-sharing. Knowledge transfer is an important prerequisite for learning and developing products that constant change makes necessary and possible.
is an important pillar for learning and the further development of technology and knowledge in the company.
Agile Living Movement lays a foundation for later Community of Practice because the participants organize the learning journey themselves with their student-peers. If a generation is put together from different areas of the company, this leads to good networking across departmental boundaries.
GROW YOUR ROLES
There is currently an acute shortage of experts in many specialist areas. Many companies are resorting to freelancers and outsiders to cover the demand within the company. This is expensive and often does not lead to the desired result. The experts tend to be used in production - when they leave the company again, their know-how also leaves the company.
With Agile Living Movement we want to anchor the know-how of the experts (internal and external) in the company and use it permanently.
SELF-MANAGED AND DEMAND-ORIENTED ONBOARDING
In many companies, developers are recruited and then assigned to a vacant spot on a team. Often, there is no way to verify how things fit together, and there can be a lot of unrest that can impact team productivity.
Agile Living Movement can serve as the first point of contact for new hires. Here, employees can settle into the company's own way of working and domain language. During the program, new hires can interact with different teams and find out where they can make the best impact.
DISSOLVING DEPENDENCE ON EXTERNAL EMPLOYEES
External employees are helpful to solve short-term problems. In the long run, they are usually too expensive. In addition, external employees can only work for the same company for a limited time due to legislation.
This always means loss of KnowHow and investment of time and money for new onboarding.
At Agile Living Movement we use the knowledge (also) of external experts to bring their knowledge into the company. It is important to us that the focus is on ensuring that these experts do not work alone - instead, we design the work situations in such a way that the knowledge flows into the company in the best possible way. Pair and mob programming, shadowing, workshops and training courses help here. The focus is on helping people to help themselves rather than letting the experts solve the problems.
