Who is CAL for?

CAL participants vary by professional background and work experience. The common thread is their desire to enhance their workplaces (and their clients’ workplaces) with Agile values, practices, and metrics. This program is for anyone leading or participating in an Agile transformation.

  • Scrum Masters / Agile coaches / consultants. Your challenge is to help clients navigate an Agile transformation with a focus on the people and mindsets necessary to shift the culture. A CAL certification provides you with the tools to help enact change and distinguishes you in the field as someone who has acquired the defined knowledge of an Agile leader.
  • Manager. One of your challenges may be overcoming internal resistance to organization-wide agility. Certified Agile Leadership gives you practical tools to bolster your shift from Agile practitioner to Agile leader, and helps you nurture yourself and senior management champions to solidify your efforts.
  • Executives, middle management and other leaders with organizational influence. Finding the time to nurture your own agility and discovering a meaningful role to play in an Agile transformation is challenging. You desire to be more than just someone who authorizes hiring a consultant or a coach. Certified Agile Leadership certification can quickly accelerate your learning curve and show you the active role you could play in a sustainable Agile transformation.
  • Leaders who support, lead or interact with Agile teams, or any leader who requests or is involved in Agile adoption in their organization (sponsor).
