Certified Agile Leadership program

Andrea Tomasini and Bent Myllerup have been approved as Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Educators, new program from Scrum Alliance

The disconnect between the agile principles and values and the traditional management approaches using a push system and a strong hierarchy are very taxing for the managers and for the teams. Over the past 10 years agile42 has been working helping many companies to successfully convert into agile organisations, and during this process we developed many tools to support the management to move toward Agile Leadership.

As part of this process our senior coaches Andrea Tomasini and Bent Myllerup have been approved as Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership Educators to deliver the new Certified Agile Leadership program.

The vision for the program is to make the values and principles of Agile accessible to every leader, regardless of prior education and experience, by making known the why, what, and how of Agile in a pragmatic and experiential approach. Therefore the program is intended for

  • executives, middle management, and other leaders with organizational influence;
  • leaders who support, lead, or interact with Agile teams;
  • any leader sponsoring, requesting, or involved with an Agile adoption within their organization.

Overview of Certified Agile Leadership program

The CAL program includes introductory education to bring awareness of the focus and journey of the Agile leader as well as an advanced path of validated learning and practice for the leader to continue the learning journey. Each of these levels includes a credential of completion.

The CAL Credential Level 1 (CAL1) program is an introductory, education-based program that consists of learning objectives across five categories. The goal of the CAL Credential Level 1 program is to bring awareness of Agile leadership thinking, focus, and behaviors and to start the Agile leader on their learning journey. The CAL1 certification can be achieved through participation in a two-day training when the required preparations have been completed.

agile42 is starting very soon to deliver official Certified Agile Leadership (Level 1) trainings for organizations. Get in touch to learn more about the availability of our coaches. Public classes will follow as well during 2017.

The goal of the CAL Credential Level 2 (CAL2) program instead is to guide leaders in deepening, applying, and sharing their Agile leadership learning. The CAL2 requires a CAL1 and successful completion of the advanced education, validated practice, and peer-based sharing requirements. Admission to the CAL2 will require a current CAL1. The CAL2 program includes advanced education, validated practice, and participation in a peer workshop with others in the program.  The CAL2 is an individual pathway for each participant. Therefore, we will not provide a specific training class but instead provide a framework for the CAL2 credential. As an Approved Education Provider we will offer support to several activities during their journey towards the CAL2 credential.

It’s an exciting new opportunity to extend the reach of Agile transformation in organizations, contact us if you want to be part of this culture.
