Certified Agile Leadership (CAL E+O) Essentials + Organization

June 12, 2023 June 15, 2023


The Scrum Alliance created the Certified Agile Leadership CAL series of 1-day workshops in response to the need to raise the leadership level in agile contexts. They found that changing the world of work via an agile mindset, strategies, and tactics can not be achieved by only focusing on the team. The more important factor is shifting the mindset of the leaders, and the CAL is focused squarely on that goal.

There are three one-day in-person classes in the CAL series:

CAL – Essentials, is the foundational class.
CAL – Teams, is focused more on team leads and line managers.
CAL – Organization, is focused more on senior leadership in at-scale or enterprise-level contexts.

If delivered in a virtual format, the class will be delivered in 3.5-hour “chunks” over four days, either in morning or afternoon sessions. We’ve found that splitting it up this way allows for a more immersive and less exhausting experience. In person, it will be a jam-packed 2-days.

At the end of this class, attendees will receive the CAL-E and CAL-O certifications.
