What is the CAL Process?
CAL I is an introductory, education-based program with objectives across five categories. This will start you on your Agile leader journey. You’ll develop awareness of Agile leadership thinking, focus, and behaviors. Your CAL I credential is achieved upon successful completion of the learning objectives.
CAL II advances your education with validated practice, and peer-based sharing. You'll have the opportunity for hands-on practice, feedback in real time, interacting with other students who share your Agile values, increased confidence and understanding of what it takes to be a successful Agile leader. Upon completion, you will be awarded the CAL II credential.

Here’s what CAL students are saying…
“Honest, Engaging, Thought-Provoking. I learned about the importance of listening — purely listening, standing in the truth and inviting others. I liked the varied methods, group discussions and visual materials.” – Laura Prieto Umerez, Operational Excellence Sr. Business Advisor
“Every Agilist should be aware of these concepts. I learned patterns for understanding organizations. And specific tools/ways to engage leaders to identify what they really want — to increase awareness to create an environment where people can thrive.” – Maria Matarelli, Coach & CST®
“Pure Magic! I gained the valuable insight into models and patterns that are more helpful than best practices. Love the focus on people as a way to be more healthy. I liked Michael’s energy — being surrounded by openness and love by Michael. Also, movement between sitting, standing, circle, quiet, sharing, and pair work” – Paul Heidema, Director Agile Transformation & Innovation (Agile Coach)
“Invigorating, Rejuvenating, Thought-provoking. I gained valuable insights into self, value of consciousness and better understanding of how to start to consider transformation to organizational agility.” – Greg Fields, Managing Director
“Enlightening, Inspiring, Energizing. I learned about self-leadership, [the] Four As Leadership model, Teal organizations, and a decision-making framework. I liked the balance of telling vs asking and the different levels of collaboration.” – Yashar Rassoulli, CTO & co-founder.
