Event description


The Center For Agile Leadership® is one of the first training providers in the world to be approved to offer Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Credential II Certification. The goal of the CAL Credential II is to guide leaders in deepening, applying, and sharing their Agile leadership learning. It is a deep dive into the concepts of the CAL I, including practical, hands-on exercises and advanced personal growth skills. It also covers additional material that builds on CAL I around organizational culture and high performance.

More than a training class or workshop, CAL II is comprehensive program that includes three primary components:

  • Validated practice
  • Advanced education
  • Peer-based sharing

The Center For Agile Leadership® has built a custom roadmap to combine these three modules of learning and experiences and fulfill the Scrum Alliance requirements.

1. Validated Practice:

  • Obtain your Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Credential I.
    (Subject to approval, we also accept CAL Level I graduates from some additional programs)
  • Practice as an Agile leader for one year.
    (Must wait 12 months after earning your CAL Level I Certification)
  • Hold an active leadership position for one year.
    (Must prove employment in a leadership role for the previous 12 months)
  • Participate in a minimum of three of our Center For Agile Leadership® coaching calls.
    (Alumni calls are held every month and are open to all past graduates)

2. Advanced Education:

The first two days of our in-person CAL II training is made up of our 2-day workshop, Building An Agile Culture

In this intensive, two-day workshop we will show you how to build a truly Agile culture based on a set of shared beliefs that create a common bond between leadership and team members. Over the two days, we’ll teach you how to assess your current culture and set a baseline. We’ll demonstrate practical tools and techniques to build an Agile culture that works to empower. And we’ll study real life examples of what’s worked and what hasn’t as we’ve built our own company culture and that of our clients.

3. Peer-Based Workshop:

Immediately following our two-day culture workshop, in the third day of in-person training, CAL Certification 2 candidates will each participate in a one-day peer review workshop. The purpose of this workshop is for each candidate to present to the group and then defend their position as an Agile leader during a live Q&A session. You will be required to present your presentation and will be asked to defend your experiences.

To prepare for this peer-based workshop there are number of homework assignments for each candidate. To assist with this process, you will be assigned a Center For Agile Leadership® facilitator who will guide you through each step and coach you toward success. With our help, you will be expected to complete the following homework prior to your peer workshop date:

  • 360 Evaluation- Your facilitator will provide you with the tools to solicit 360 degree reviews from your peers, supervisors, and team members.
  • Agile Leader Presentation- Your mentor will work with you and advise you as you create a visual presentation outlining your journey as an Agile leader and detail the impact you have had.
  • Executive Summary- You will be expected to provide a written summary of your presentation.


Registering for Certified Agile Leader (CAL) Credential II, includes all pre-work and validation process, two day Culture Workshop and one day Peer Workshop.

Prior to your class date: Your Center For Agile Leadership Facilitator will contact you and guide you through the validation process. Your faciltator will then help you prepare for the one day peer review by providing tools and guidance for gathering the 360 Evaluation and preparing your presentation.

Days 1 & 2: Building an Agile Culture Workshop

Day 3: Peer-based Workshop where you will present and defend your Agile Leader journey.
