Our Certified Agile Leadership Training

with Scrum Alliance Certificate

In our Agile Academy Certified Agile Leadership training, you'll acquire the competencies and expertise needed to excel as an Agile Leader. The course spans two days, providing you with valuable insights into the essential tools and methodologies for this leadership style.

We all know that two days of training do not immediately result in one becoming a different leader. But our live training includes many immediately actionable insights. Plus, when you book through the Agile Academy, you get life-time access to our Agile Leader Online Course, which makes your learning journey much more sustainable.

The online course includes all aspects of the live training and much more. This means you can always return to the online course after the live training to repeat and deepen individual topics.

Agile Leadership Agenda

The training is divided into three specialised modules, each designed to focus on different aspects of Agile Leadership. Depending on the certificate combination, the subsections of the Certified Agile Leadership training first cover the following:

CAL-Essentials (CAL-E): The Essence of Agile Leadership

This foundational module is about the WHY and the WHAT of Agile Leadership focused on you as the leader and individuals that you lead.

What are the economic drivers behind agile methodologies? Why is agility crucial in today's complex and uncertain markets? How have historical management trends evolved to suit different business climates? What role does employee engagement and customer focus play in agile leadership?

These are critical questions that anyone undergoing Certified Agile Leadership or actually any type of leadership training will inevitably encounter. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and tools to confidently address these questions whenever they arise.

To facilitate your understanding, we employ various frameworks and models, such as the Complexity-Value Matrix or the Agile Leadership Compass. These tools help you grasp and articulate how agile leadership differs from traditional management styles. They also offer insights into how value and engagement are optimized in an agile setting. Additionally, each of our trainers brings real-world examples and stories from organizations they have consulted with, enriching your Agile Leadership training experience.

CAL-Teams (CAL-T): Navigating Agile Leadership Dynamics

Building on CAL-E, this module teaches you how to create high-performing teams.

What does it mean to be self-aware as an agile leader? How does neuroscientific leadership align with agile principles? What is the importance of feedback in agile leadership? How can Catalyst Conversations and coaching enhance team engagement and results? What are the organizational aspects that an agile leader needs to focus on for value creation?

These are essential questions that you'll delve into when you participate in our Certified Agile Leadership Training, specifically in the CAL-T (Teams) and CAL-O (Organizations) modules. Our training aims to provide you with the insights and tools to answer these questions effectively.

CAL-Organizations (CAL-O): Organizational Agility in Focus

This advanced module is designed to guide organizational leaders through the complexities of long-term Agile transformation.

What are the hurdles when scaling Agile principles to multiple teams within your organization? How can you foster an environment of safety, trust, and collaboration for improved performance? What are the best practices for identifying and eliminating organizational bottlenecks and friction points? How do case studies from diverse corporate cultures inform agile leadership?

These are key questions that will be addressed in our CAL-O module. Our aim is to equip you with the insights and actionable strategies to tackle these organizational issues head-on.

In this section of the training, we explore the intricacies of extending Agile methodologies across various teams in an organization. We discuss how to cultivate a culture that prioritizes safety, trust, and collaboration.

Practical exercises are designed to help you pinpoint and mitigate bottlenecks and other obstacles that hinder organizational agility. Moreover, we delve into case studies from organizations with different corporate cultures that have successfully implemented agile structures, driving sustainable change and achieving positive outcomes.

These real-world examples serve to enrich your understanding and provide diverse approaches to organizational transformation, making this a vital part of our comprehensive agile leadership training.

Bring Your Own Ideas & Questions

We encourage participants to bring their questions to the training. Any question and real-world example from your side will make everything you and others learn more tangible. It will also result in more energy throughout the training which is connected to better learning.

FAQ about Certified Agile Leadership CAL

In the agile leadership training you will see an exciting mix of practical tasks, case studies, fascinating background knowledge including tools and techniques. Through the lively exchange with participants from different industries and a lot of interaction and fun, you will learn how to gradually master the following challenges for yourself and your company:

  • You foster creativity, enthusiasm and commitment among colleagues.
  • You empower your employees to make profitable decisions.
  • You accelerate innovation and eliminate bureaucracy.
  • You achieve faster delivery of new products without pressure.
  • You reduce the risk for your company to be overtaken by new competitors.
  • You learn to hand over responsibility and finally have time for the other important tasks of a manager.

The CAL-Essentials is an important foundation for becoming an agile leader. Here you learn what matters to you as well as to your colleagues and the company in order to survive in a VUCA world.

Certified Agile Leadership for Teams is also useful for any agile leader in a leadership role. Here you will learn the basics of agile leadership for independent teams.

At CAL Organizations, you'll learn how the C-suite and corporate leadership should change in order for an agile transformation to be successful in the long term. So if you are just looking for a small introduction to agile leadership, CAL-E may already be enough for you. But as soon as you also want to learn how Agile Leadership can be applied to individuals, teams, divisions and entire departments or companies, the complete three-part Certified Agile Leadership Seminar is the best solution for you.

The Certified Agile Leadership Training consists of up to three certificates in the first award level. Since the Agile Academy is an independent platform of partner companies, each trainer decides which certificates are part of the training.

The Certified Agile Leadership Seminar is split into Essentials (agile basics for leaders), Teams (leadership of individuals and groups) and Organizations (agile transformation of the company). All three certificates can be covered independently, as a duo or as a trio in the training. In addition, each trainer is free to include additional case studies, models and frameworks in their training.

Yes, of course. The Certified Agile Leadership is for anyone who wants to know how leadership works in an agile organization. People in leadership roles or on their way to it will learn in the modules how they can manage to significantly advance the Agile transformation of a company.

In the training, you will be shown what a culture of learning and sustainable agility can do in your organization. You will be shown how to foster the emergence and performance of empowered teams and adapt management styles to effect positive change in your organization.

The Leadership Seminars are primarily aimed at individuals who want to create a "safe-to-fail" environment and an open and transparent culture in the company. You will learn how to face the digital transformation and how to successfully shape agile change in the company.

Certification for Teams & Companies

Certified Agile Leadership as In-House Training

Choosing an in-house Certified Agile Leadership training program, particularly for groups of 8 or more, comes with several unique benefits. The training can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of your organization, facilitating team cohesion and real-world application. Conducting the training in-house allows for confidential discussions about the unique challenges your organization may be facing.

From a financial perspective, in-house training is generally more cost-efficient per participant compared to public courses. This also eliminates additional external costs such as travel and accommodation. Furthermore, these in-house sessions can be accredited by various esteemed organizations, enhancing the professional development of your team.

In summary, in-house Certified Agile Leadership training offers the advantages of customization, privacy, cost-effectiveness, and the option for recognized certification, if desired.
