Culture Workshop: CAL II Advanced Education


  • Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Credential I

Defining and building a culture is hard. So hard that most people don’t even know where to start. However, organizations that focus on developing authentic, value-driven, cultures maximize the full impact of Agile. Culture is the difference between doing Agile and BEING Agile.

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 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. The Building An Agile Culture 2-day workshop fulfills the Advanced Education component of CAL II.

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 role-playing experiences and advanced personal growth skills. It also covers additional material that builds on CAL I around organizational culture and high performance. Click here to watch a short video explaining CAL II.
