Overcome Top Challenges with Agile
The Scrum Alliance created the CAL program in response to a desperate plea for help with overcoming the top organisational challenges with Agile:
Certified Agile Leadership Training gives managers and coaches skills needed to foster success
Your success as a leader in an Agile organisation requires looking beyond Agile itself. It requires a deep understanding of your organisation and your own leadership path. To equip you for this journey, you will gain a strong foundation in understanding organisational culture. From there, you will learn key organisation and leadership models that will allow you to understand how your organisational culture really works.
Now you are ready to start the journey! You will learn about organisational growth ‐ how you may foster lasting change in your organisation. 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.
Though each Certified Agile Leadership 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 (CAL 1) designation. See Scrum Alliance Website for further details.
About Michael Sahota
I believe people deliver astounding results when we fully engage them with Purpose in Safe, Connected workplaces.
I help leaders cultivate their organisational culture. To show up in ways that invites others to show up. And to evolve structures and practices that foster a resilient adaptable organisation.
I am a guide and teacher of organisational gardening. I lead by example. I lovingly invite awareness to increase options and choice. I foster this through: training, coaching, consulting, and facilitation.
Since 2001, I have been fostering an Agile way of working. Since 2010, I have been helping organisations evolve their organisational culture and leadership to create places where "Agile" may flourish. As a Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC) and Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Educator, I help leaders bridge the world between "Agile" and organisational reality.
