When we lead change, we typically rely on change management theories for help. They bring structure, ease, and they provide context for the psychology of an individual and also organizational psychology. This leaves a gap, which manifests in how others influence individual behavior, or, in other words, social psychology. Even though the domain of social psychology is often overlooked, it provides key insights for the successful execution of change management theories. In this module, you will learn the basics of social psychology, which is instrumental as you begin implementing change management theories at the team and organizational levels.

Scrum is a lightweight Agile framework. It can be applied across different industries, it is simple, and it can be adopted fairly quickly if the team is open to it. In this module, you will learn Scrum terminology and tools for transforming your team into an Agile one. You will be introduced to the concept of sprint planning, daily scrum, work velocity, and retrospective. As you begin implementing these tools, invite your team to take a learning journey with you. You can suggest it as a “pilot” and see if it works well for your industry, company, and your team.
