About EAPM Program

The Agile Manifesto was created for software development and doesn’t account for many enterprise-level issues such as enterprise architecture, remote workforce, multi-teams, reporting, mindset change management, governance, Project Management, business analysis, customer experience or regulatory compliance into consideration. Enterprise Agile implementers are facing challenges because these complex problems are not addressed.

Our courses will provide practical knowledge – “How To” real project examples so you can help your organization have a smoother agile transition by addressing these complex challenges.

The focus of the class is to provide insight into Lean, Agile, Scrum and show how project management contributes to Agile practices. Agile techniques, such as writing effective user stories, are also introduced. This class is excellent for anyone moving into the Agile methodology and necessary for leaders who are looking to improve their company’s Agile program.

Behaviour/Mindset Assessment

As part of this program, we will be assessing you in the following four areas.

1. Behaviours (DISC)
Measured in four proportions (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance), Behaviors/DISC reveal how an individual will perform, including how they prefer to communicate, what he or she will bring to a team, his or her ideal environment and possible limitations he or she may face.

Behavioural research suggests that the most effective people are those who understand themselves, both their strengths and weaknesses, so they can develop strategies to meet the demands of their environment.

Behaviours assessment examine an individual’s dominance, influence, steadiness and compliance, revealing the ways in which one responds to the following:

• Problems and Challenges
• Influencing Others
• Pace of Environment
• Rules and Procedures

2. 12 Driving Forces™ (Motivators)
Driving forces uncover what motivates and engages an individual in work and in life. Our assessment reveals 12 Driving Forces that uniquely define what sparks movement and ambition in each of us.

Just as behavioural (or DISC) assessments help tell us how people behave and perform in a work environment, our 12 Driving Forces assessment reveals why they do what they do and what impacts their decision-making.

Our assessments measuring 12 Driving Forces examine the relative prominence of the following:
• Instinctive/Intellectual (Knowledge)
• Selfless/Resourceful (Utility)
• Objective/Harmonious (Surroundings)
• Intentional/Altruistic (Others)
• Collaborative/Commanding (Power)
• Receptive/Structured (Methodologies)

3. Competencies
Measuring 25 research-based personal skills directly related to the business environment. Competencies ensure the skills of each individual match the soft skills required for the job.

Our assessments measuring Competencies examine the level of development of 25 unique personal skills, ranking them from the most well-developed skill to the one requiring the greatest level of further development.

While not every job requires the development of all 25 Competencies, TTI SI examines the following personal skills:

4. Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Emotional Intelligence is an individual’s ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate high levels of collaboration and productivity.

Successful leaders and superior performers have well developed EQ skills. This enables them to work well with a wide variety of people and respond effectively to the rapidly changing conditions in the business world.

EQ examines five key areas pertaining to intrapersonal and interpersonal relations:

• Self Awareness
• Self Regulation
• Motivation
• Empathy
• Social Skills
