Who should participate? 

CAL participants vary by professional background and work experience. The common thread is their desire to enhance their workplaces (and their clients’ workplaces) with agile values, practices, and metrics. This program is for anyone leading or participating in an agile transformation.

  • Coach / Consultant. 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.
  • ScrumMaster. Your challenge is to work with teams and managers, and certified agile leadership (Essential, Teams and Organizatios) all help give different dimensions of insights for you to help you, your teams and your organizations navigate an agile transformation with a focus on the people and mindsets necessary to shift the culture, to truly facilitate your teams and organization’s continuous improvement journey.
  • Product Owner. To build a fantastic product and continuously innovate on product and business models, one of your challenges may be working with organizational culture, structure. You want to actively engage teams and build great products with fully motivated and talented teams.
  • Manager. One of your challenges may be overcoming internal resistance to organization-wide agility. Certified Agile Leadership gives you practical tools to bolster your shift from agile practitioner to agile leader, and helps you nurture yourself and senior management champions to solidify your efforts.
  • Executive. 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.
  • 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.
