A Leader can be made, embracing Agile values starting from the crucial point of having the will to change
New public class in Johannesburg for the Certified Agile Leadership I (CAL1) training, starting on September 3
The Certified Agile Leadership program returns to Johannesburg for the first time in 2018 with a public class on September 3-5 that can be booked online. The vision for this new program from the Scrum Alliance 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.
Those who embrace Agile values paint a pretty clear picture of an Agile Leader. They are someone who can deal with uncertainty and flux, someone who is knowledgeable on methods and approaches, someone who is creative and team-focused. And moreover, they are someone living by the Agile Principles. The role of the leader in the Agile team is not to say who does what, but to keep an eye on the destination so that everyone is rowing towards the same direction and to remove the obstacles in their way. They free their team members to do their job by providing a safe-to-fail environment, information, and support. Without organizing, they make self-organization possible.

The course in Johannesburg, facilitated by Peter Hundermark and Joanne Perold, 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.
