The Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) is the Scrum Alliance educational program for people like you. It aims at providing you the best possible frameworks and tools in order to foster an agile culture for high performance in your organization. It will help you and your company to BE agile in stead of just DO Scrum.
The Certified Agile Leadership has been developed by coaches who are affiliated with Scrum Alliance as a two-level certification program. It has learning objectives in five areas, which are: The Context for Agile, Agile Overview, Leadership in an Agile Context, The Agile Organization and Agile Approaches to Change.
Only the Scrum Trainers with the highest expertise can be approved to deliver the CAL program. The requirements for this are combinations of being a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), a Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC), having a certification or
accreditation in a recognized leadership development program, as well as having proved leadership development skills.
At agile42 we are among the firsts who have been approved to deliver the CAL program. We have taken the framework of the program, mixed it with our unique concept for accelerated learning, our years of experience in delivering leadership trainings and developed a sustainable program.
The structure of the program is a mixture of participant preparation, a two-day workshop (the CAL1 course) and a post training program. The latter part include peer discussion groups, coaching and personal development plan to grow into an agile leader. The post training program has two objectives: first of all to help you on your ongoing journey as leader, and secondly to sketch out a possible path for you towards the CAL 2 credential level.
The agenda of our CAL1 course is the following:
The purpose of this preparation is to provide you a path for the Agile Overview learning objective. You must expect three to four hours of preparation for the training. We will provided you some homework in preparation of the workshop, by means of an invitation letter containing 3 different assignments.
We will invite you to learn about the practice of the Gemba Walk and we will explain you the concept of Leadership in an Agile Context which encourages you as a leader to be present, aware, and engaged. We expect you to share you preparation work and results with the other workshop participants
The course will be covering the predefined learning objectives by means of multiple self-contained training modules. All of the learning objectives will be covered by multiple modules, rather than one by one. Through the whole training, the trainer will make use of a specific Case Study that will be used to present examples, reflections and exercises. For the training you will be provided with a little empty booklet for taking notes about your own journey. This will be used in journaling activities and self-reflections
