This workshop provides a Certified Agile Leadership, Level 1 (CAL-1) certification with the Scrum Alliance.
Leading agile teams might be one of the hardest things you’ve ever done. That is if you want to do it effectively and congruently. The agile methods have moved beyond hype and novelty to embed themselves in nearly every software company in the world. That’s sort of the good news. That these methods are here to stay and have the potential to be a game-changer.
The bad news is that it takes a leadership transformation to effectively make agility work. You see, you can’t just “go Agile” and not change your leadership style, habits, approaches, and posture. It also requires a culture shift. All of which point to you as a key guide to lead your teams through all of these changes. But there has been a lack of focus on leaders and the requisite leadership skills in agile contexts.
Well, the good news is that this course is intended to address exactly that challenge. And do it in a practical way. Sharing stories, practices, and real-world experience into the dynamics of effective agile leadership. If you are looking to become a skilled agile leader, then this class is a wonderful way to kick-off that journey.Topical Exploration

The CAL is focused on leaders and managers. Line managers and up will gain value from the class. As would senior ScrumMasters and agile coaches. In addition, senior product managers or product owners would also gain value. The sweet spot for the class is a company’s entire cross-functional leadership team engaged in an agile transformation. The broader the representation, the better.Cancellation Policy
