About this Event

A Team KatAnu Class, Delivered by Anu Smalley
Certified Agile Leadership (CAL®)

Leadership is all about navigating a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) world. Successful leaders learn how to assess and pivot, often to meet the changing needs of the customer and the world.

The CAL program consists of three foundational certification courses: CAL Essentials, CAL for Teams, and CAL for Organizations. To master these skills, take two prerequisite foundational courses, then progress onto CAL II® which features a blend of validated practice, advanced education and peer-driven workshops.

Over the past four years, Scrum Alliance has gathered feedback from students and as a result, adapted what was the Certified Agile Leadership (CAL I®) program to be more effective. What was a two-day class is now broken out into three focused one-day modules:

  • Agile Leadership Essentials (CAL-E®)
  • Agile Leadership for Teams (CAL-T®)
  • Agile Leadership for Organizations (CAL-O®)

We currently offer CAL-E® and CAL-T® as a 2-day bundled class. If you are interested in attending just one of the modules or are interested in the CAL-O® module, please email us at c3VwcG9ydCB8IGNhcGFsYWNvbnN1bHRpbmcgISBjb20=.

Certified Agile Leadership - Essentials® Overview

This module teaches you the basic skills necessary to become an effective Agile leader. CAL-Essentials is very much about exploring “you as a Leader”, leading in a VUCA world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous), and how to lead from a position of influence.

Leaders today are striving to stay on top of rapidly changing business needs and are coming to understand that the ability to respond and adapt quickly is increasingly important. You are now required to shift the way you think about your role as a leader, your relationship with your employees, and the culture of your organization.

Agile Leaders are flexible and capable of leading across cultures, generations, and geographies. Agile Leaders focus on building self-organizing, self-managing teams, setting a vision, and supporting the team as they produce amazing results. We explore the mindset shift required for successful Agile Leadership and how self-awareness, social awareness, and situational awareness are critical for a leadership role. Leadership Agility is especially important in uncertain times to help teams and organizations grow.

Learning Objectives for CAL Essentials®
  • Changing management trends required in a volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous (VUCA) world.
  • Mindset shifts required to effectively lead in conditions of high volatility and uncertainty.
  • Authentic Leadership Framework to support your leadership development.
  • Self, Situational and Social Awareness, Growth mindset to engage and interact with my team(s).

Certified Agile Leadership - Teams® Overview

This module helps build strong leaders who can use their unique strengths for the betterment of the whole. CAL-Teams continues your leadership journey looking at ways to influence culture and support your teams on their journey to becoming High Performing teams. It explores the multiple facets of your leadership role around mentoring and coaching as well as challenges you may face as you scale Agility in your organization. It looks at ways to be engaged with your team without micromanaging and using metrics that support your team’s growth.

Who should attend
  • Agile Team Members/Aspiring Agilists. Everyone on an agile team is a leader — self-directed, self-organizing teams get more meaningful work done. To truly practice agility, learn what agile leaders do differently to prepare their teams to pivot powerfully in this volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world.
  • Managers. One of your challenges may be overcoming internal resistance to organization-wide agility. Certified Agile Leadership gives you practical tools to bolster your growth into agile practitioner and leader, and helps you nurture yourself and senior management champions to solidify your efforts.
  • Organizational Decision Makers & Change Leaders. Put yourself ahead of the agile learning curve and discover the joy of taking an active role in sustainable business agility. This course helps you embrace the agile values, practices, and metrics that drive agile decision making. Take the struggle out of transforming company culture by learning to embody a mindset of transparency, inspection, and adaptation.
  • Executives. Finding the time to nurture your own agility and discovering a meaningful role to play in an agile transformation is challenging. You desire to be more than just someone who authorizes hiring a consultant or coach. Certified Agile Leadership certification can quickly accelerate your learning curve and show you the active role you could play in a sustainable agile transformation. You’ll also discover a personal transformation as you learn about your own internal leadership development.
  • Coaches/Consultants. Your challenge is to help clients navigate an agile transformation with a focus on the people and mindsets necessary to shift the culture. A CAL certification provides you the tools to help enact change and distinguishes you in the field as someone who has acquired the defined knowledge of an agile leader.
  • The Leader in You … in All of Us. Finding out more about your personal leadership style can enlighten you and help you be more empathetic to everyone you encounter. This program can enhance both your career and your personal life.
