Online education in times of COVID-19: Agile Academy offers virtual live trainings.

Agile Leader (online self-paced)
01.01. - 31.12.2021 , online aired from Cologne

Today’s workplace is a fast-paced “race” on a complex and uncertain global field. Many organizations refer to the so-called VUCA world. Traditional leadership thinking and practices are failing to meet today’s challenges. Leader’s must more effectively engage employees, foster creativity, accelerate delivery, and mitigate risk to outpace the competition. Innovation based on human creativity is the only competitive barrier remaining.

This self-paced online Agile Leader course with Sohrab Salimi (Certified Agile Leadership Educator®) is an interactive leadership-focused workshop building skills and competencies to effectively guide and grow agile leaders, coaches, and their organizations to perform more effectively in this fast-pace, complex and uncertain environment. It will prepare leaders to substantially influence their organization’s agility and effectiveness. 

This course  focuses on the leader’s own awareness and capacity to effectively guide and grow their organization’s capacity. It is the first step – the AHA! – in the leader’s journey toward improved performance and outcomes. 

This course was created based on our experience teaching leaders in a wide range of industries and geographies. We have worked with many companies across the globe such as Allianz, Swiss Re, Roche, Sanofi, McKinsey & Company, ADCB, and ALDI who are using this curriculum internally to equip their leaders with the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed in the 21st century. 

The course is taught by Sohrab Salimi, who is a global thought leader in the areas of agile, strategy, innovation, and leadership. Sohrab is a Certified Agile Leadership Educator® by the Scrum Alliance, a Strategyzer Coach, and a former management consultant with Bain & Company. He has 10+ years of experience as a CEO and CIO in various companies and industries.

Your Agile Leader (online self-paced) event in Cologne (online)

Leaders substantially influence an organization’s agility and effectiveness. Increasing leadership awareness and competency in their own agility as well as their competency in aligning and empowering organizational agility is challenging. 

This course provides the AHA! leaders need, to increase their own personal awareness and to kickstart their journey to improved performance. The Scrum Academy Agile Leadership course with Sohrab Salimi is an interactive leadership-focused course building skills and competencies to effectively guide and grow agile leaders, coaches, and their organizations to perform more effectively in this fast-pace, complex and uncertain environment. 

This course is a pragmatic application of theory, enriched with many real life examples and provides concrete models, tools and techniques for leaders to employ directly in their own thinking, their own behaviors, and within their own organizations.

After this class, our participants are always amazed how many tools they really learned and worked with. We frequently hear: "You have taught me more in a few days, than I learned in 10 years as a Leader". This type of feedback makes us proud as we know that all of our tools and techniques are not only proven, but fit together really well. They allow you - as a Scrum Master - to work systematically and help your teams succeed.

This course consists of 3 modules

Module 1: Focus on the Leader and Leadership

  • Context for Agility - Participants take a historical tour of management styles and industry trends driving the need for increased creativity and agility.
  • Leadership Agility Maturity - Participants explore and self-assess their leadership maturity and its relation to increased creativity and agility for improved outcomes.
  • Neuroscience of Leadership - Participants delve into the fundamentals of brain research from threats on status, autonomy, fairness and change and how leaders can improve outcomes through cognitive responses.
  • Catalyst Conversations - Participants learn and practice a simple 5-step technique to reduce threats, increase creative outcomes, and empower others in any conversation, team meeting or organizational initiative.

Module 2: Focus on the Development of Teams

  • The Science behind building high-performing teams based on various studies done by Google, Gallup, and other organizations
  • Models to systematically assess and develop teams towards high-performance
  • Frameworks and techniques to increase focus and foster cross-team collaboration

Module 3: Focus on the Organization and Change/Transition

  • Organizational Culture - Participants examine the Competing Values Framework, and organizational culture diagnostic, to better understand organizational values and their impact on change and agility.
  • Organizational Change - Participants walk through 3 interconnected change models to better understand the organization as a complex adaptive system and how to guide change that sticks.
  • Organizational Case Studies - Participants explore course-led and participant shared case studies to evaluate governance, metrics, and structures which impede or strengthen organizational agility.

Many of our participants are leaders within their organization prior to joining our training and want to deepen their understanding of the role and learn new tools to become more effective. Others are going to be in Leadership positions soon, hence want to kick-start their journey. And some are Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches or Consultants who want to extend their own skillset in order to be a better advisor to leaders they work with.

We frequently have participants from the following industries: Software, Automotive, Pharma, Medtech, Chemicals, Banking, Insurance, Consulting, the public sector, and many more. So no matter where you work, there is a high chance we have experience in your industry.
