    Course Overview

    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, you will gain 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.

    Now you are ready to start the journey! You will learn about organizational growth - how you may foster lasting change in your organization. Key is understanding how it invites change in a complex system. You will also learn about leadership - how you may show up more effectively, and how to help others.


    Certified Agile Leadership

    When we examine culture and leadership closely, we see that they are two sides of the same coin; neither can really be understood by itself.” – Edgar Schein

    Our Partner: Scrum With Style

    We are delighted to have our parter Scrum With Style host this event.

    Though each Certified Agile Leadership I course varies depending on the instructor, all Certified Agile Leadership courses intend to create awareness of, and begin the journey toward, Agile Leadership. Graduates will receive the Certified Agile Leadership I designation.

  • Agenda

    Training Environment

    We create a highly interactive dynamic training environment. Each of you are unique – and so is each training. Although the essentials will be covered in every class, you will be involved in shaping the depth and focus of our time together. Each learning module is treated as a User Story (see photo) and we will co-create a unique learning journey that supports everyone’s needs. Only the most valuable topics will be covered. 

    The training will draw from the learning areas identified in the Certified Agile Leadership overview diagram.
