Gladwell Academy India

Gladwell Academy India is a leading organization in the field of Agile/SAFe transformation, consulting, coaching, and training in India. We are driven by our mission to continuously enable people and organizations to be better than yesterday through knowledge, experience and education. But also holding ourselves accountable to continuously be better than yesterday.

This mission has led our trainers constantly learn and unlearn the new rules of the game. We believe in delivering the most valuable learning experience to our participants through live examples, and through business stories. The trainers at Gladwell Academy are all practitioners in their field of Agile and SAFe transformation.

The range of courses and services offered at Gladwell Academy India, as well as the amplitude of ways to ensure individuals and businesses continue to grow and stay ahead of the competition, has established Gladwell Academy’s authority in Agile Transformations. We are probably best known for our expertise with the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), being one of the first to introduce the framework in Europe and India.

No ‘one-size-fits-all’ in Agile Transformation
Understanding that every business and organization is unique in its ways and therefore also unique in the issues to address in an Agile Transformation, is a first step in the process. For Gladwell, it means identifying and understanding the client’s issues and goals first. Be it quality, innovation, time to market, and attrition. This is a crucial step in being able to approach the transformation process strategically and to create a dedicated and company-specific roadmap to work towards to, the so-called ‘transformation roadmap’

We want to make India the 'SAFe Hub' of Asia

Anand Murthy Raj- Asia's First SAFe Fellow

"The toughest challenge in my career as a SAFe transformation consultant is building resilience in people. How do I change the mindset of people? How do I change the belief system of people when it comes to a different way of working? How do you help people in understanding a different way of doing things? It is my goal to change people and organizations for the better and to give them the confidence and power to not go back to their old ways and use SAFe as an approach to achieve personal and business agility."

Why The Need For Agile- A change in personal mindset

Beliefs drive → and Behavior drive → Business. If you intend to change the business, you must change the underlying belief system. SAFe enables you to understand the need to change the mindset and reestablishes this need in the form of Principles and Practices. This is the most effective way to address the change. SAFe certifications take a deep dive in to these aspects giving you a better understanding of how to deal with these changes individually and at an enterprise.

What Motivates Us
As our Associate Director, Anand Murthy Raj, asserts, “We are an organization that can provide Agile Transformation and consulting services to enterprises. Training is most certainly a very important part of Gladwell’s core business, as it represents for many companies a first touchstone with the concepts of SAFe, Agile or Scrum. It is a way to see how these frameworks can be applied to the way we structure ourselves, what our focus points are and where we can add value.
