Leading Agile experts and entrepreneurs Sanjiv Augustine and Arlen Bankston facilitate this accelerated graduate-style program to leadership agility. The inaugural year-long Agile Leadership Academy™ begins with a fundamentals workshop: Foundations of Lean & Agile Leadership. Executive delegates will gain core Agile knowledge from a leadership perspective to shape the future of agility in their organizations. The foundations workshop will feature a site visit to a leading Agile organization in the DC area on day one. On day two, Agile mentors will share case studies to highlight the staggering results of Agile transformations, use first hand insight to steer leaders away from common pitfalls, and share groundbreaking practical tools for executives to apply at their organizations.

Delegates benefit from a network of peers who can identify with the most pressing demands of the executive role in an Agile organization. Delegates also get mentor and peer support – from hiring and firing, to budgeting, de-siloing Agile to non-IT departments, and envisioning and launching a total business transformation strategy. By bringing expert Agile guides into their executive circles, delegates leave the Agile Leadership Academy™ with custom tools and ongoing guidance. The Agile Leadership Academy™ program also features input from industry thought leaders and ALA Ambassadors, including Jeff Sutherland, JJ Sutherland, Pat Reed, and Dot Tudor.

Join the inner circle of Agile executives who are ready to embrace Agile cultural change organization-wide, and lead with purpose, speed and agility. The Agile Leadership Academy™ is fully aligned with the learning outcomes of the newly unveiled Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership Program, as highlighted here:
