Certified Agile Leadership® 1 Workshop

According to the latest “State of Agile” report, survey respondents point to executive sponsorship and their ongoing support as key to implementing and scaling agility. Alongside teams moving forward to a more agile and modern way of working, managers, directors, and the C-suite should consider improving their leadership skills in order to encourage speed, flexibility, and innovation.

The Certified Agile Leader® I (CAL-1) class teaches leaders how to use Agile principles in their day-to-day interactions with colleagues and team members and how to become an effective change agent and guiding force.

Sorry no events to show 🙁

You have people that have similar experiences and instructors with real-life experiences. It is a well-constructed class--the exercises were really well done, enough breaks, a lot of humor. I think it’s absolutely the best thing I ever did.

So you learn a little bit, you do an exercise, learn a little bit, do an exercise. It keeps you alert, awake, and interested. It’s a good thing to sign up for because it’s valuable; it’s not just something you attend.

James Moscariello

Both the instructors were very informative and kept everyone in tune and interactive all the time. Overall, they’re just a great company. I learned way more in training and way more equipped with the right tools to tell them how to properly use the methodology that no YouTube video could ever teach me.
