Agile for Innovation

A Workshop for Nonprofits

Agile and Scrum methodologies have been used in the tech sector for decades to help teams increase productivity and deliver value to customers faster. Because of its flexibility, we’ve found that these same methodologies can be applied in the nonprofit industry to help you not only increase your team’s productivity, but also scale your impact in the community and achieve your mission.


Do You:

  • Have too much to do and not enough resources to get it done?
  • Juggle projects or problems with a lot of moving parts and partners?
  • Hit roadblocks or find yourself missing deadlines and working late?
  • Know if you’re working on the right priorities?

We find that these issues are all too common for the nonprofit organizations we work with, no matter their size. So, to help you overcome these challenges, we’ve developed an Agile curriculum that can be delivered in as little as 4 hours.


Key Outcomes

  • Understand the basics of Agile and the Scrum framework
  • Tackle your real issues with hands-on exercises led by a Scrum certified expert
  • Walk away with cost-effective tools and methods for increasing productivity
  • Structure to help your organization innovate

We know your time is precious. That’s why our workshops include team working sessions, so we can get past theory and give you personalized and tangible solutions you can use back in the office with your team, immediately!


Who Is This Workshop For?

Executive directors, project managers, department heads, leaders of complex projects and their teams.

I really felt Impaktfel did a great job taking a large topic like Agile and giving an overview that left us with an understanding of the framework and next steps that we would immediately use to make an impact in our organization’s structure.
