Your success as a leader in an Agile organization requires looking beyond Agile itself. It requires a deep understanding of your organization and your own leadership path. To equip you for this journey, this course will provide you with a strong foundation in understanding organizational culture. From there, you will learn key organization and leadership models that will allow you to understand how your organizational culture really works.

You will learn about organizational growth – how you may foster lasting change in your organization. Key is understanding how to invite change in a complex system. Therefore, you will also learn about leadership – how you may show up more effectively, and how to help others.

During this experience, you will undergo a process of letting go of existing behaviours that block your abilities to be an effective leader. You will explore models of culture and receive a playbook to guide the next steps on your journey of creating high performance teams and organizations.

This Certified Agile Leadership training has migrated from CAL1 to the Scrum Alliance’s new Certified Agile Leadership Essentials and Certified Agile Leadership for Organizations.

What is the difference between SAFe and CAL?

On the surface, the goals of SAFe and CAL are similar: An Agile Organization.

SAFe has an excellent focus on Tactical elements of Agile such as the process, roles, multi-team releases. It is a wonderful way to adopt Agile practices in a large organization. One might say the focus is on Doing Agile. The focus here is on what may we do to improve things with as little organizational change as possible. The focus of my CAL is cultural with an outlook towards Being Agile. How may we foster and Agile mindset to create a nimble flexible organization powered by engaged, innovative people? For this we look at topics such as leadership, org structure, culture, and organizational growth. The focus here is long-term sustainable growth from a holistic integrated perspective.
