Creating Future Focused Ways of Working: A Masterclass on Agile Working

  • 29th September 2020
  • 09:30 - 13:30
  • This workshop will be hosted on Zoom


At a time when employers are considering bringing more staff back to work after enforced homeworking or thinking about what they have learned about ways of working over the last five months and what the new workplace culture should be, this masterclass helps you navigate the challenges and opportunities of a post covid workplace.

If you aspire to lead your organisation to become the workplace of tomorrow and want to be recognised as the driving force behind increased profits and more efficient working practices you must attend this Masterclass. We will show you how to use future focused ways of working to improve the performance of your organisation and the individuals within it, whilst creating a culture of trust and autonomy.

Smart or Agile Working is a way of working in which an organisation empowers its people to work where, when and how they choose – with maximum flexibility and minimum constraints – to optimise their performance and deliver “best in class” value and customer service. It uses communications and information technology to enable people to work in ways, which best suit their needs without the traditional limitations of where and when tasks must be performed.[1]


Agile working is often confused with flexible working, which is viewed as an employee benefit with associated costs and disadvantages to the organisation. It can also be confused with home working, which will work for some but can be restrictive for others. However, true agile working is a transformational tool to allow organisations to work smarter by finding the optimum ways of working that eliminate the barriers to efficient working and maximise cost efficiencies.


Led by enei Associate Debbie Rotchell, our Masterclass will cover:

  • An overview of what future focused ways of working and agile working are
  • How this differs from flexible working and home working
  • What the benefits of agile working are (both for the organisation and employees)
  • How agility and the associated culture change can be achieved, in a post covid environment
  • Case studies of organisations who have successfully implemented agile working
  • Guidance on how to manage agile workers; and
  • Practical tips about the common problems organisations encounter when implementing agile working and how to avoid them



As a result of attending this workshop you will be able to:

• Understand the opportunities for future focused ways of working in your organisation

• Build your own agile working business case

• Plan a successful agile working project, avoiding the common mistakes
