Certified Agile Leadership

Certified Agile Leadership I is a two-day workshop focused on the role, responsibilities and reasons for being an agile leader.  A highly interactive program is aimed at helping participants create personalized plans that can be put directly into action following the workshop.  A rich combination of discussions with peers, lecture, movies, micro-exercises and more ensure that participants are both engaged and entertained.  

This course is taught by actual executives who have personally been at the forefront of numerous agile transformations, and are recognized thought leaders in the agile space for over fifteen years.  Personal experience in both public and commercial organizations with the full gamut of agile techniques including Scrum, Kanban, scaling methods and DevOps helps instructors connect with the real-world needs of participants, instead of just conveying theory. Learn what has and hasn’t worked in real world whole-company transformations, encompassing not just software development but also impacts to HR, finance, marketing and more.
