Virtual Certified Agile Leadership, Organizations (CAL-O)
- Internet access.
- Past leadership experience. You will get the most from this certification if you are currently serving in a leadership position.
- While it is not required to earn your CAL-O certification, we highly recommend that you take Certified Agile Leadership Essentials (CAL-E) prior to the CAL-O certification.
The Certified Agile Leadership—Organizations (CAL-O) class will teach you how to shift your mindset about the culture and employees in your organization. Leading an entire organization to become Agile is hard. CAL-O will give you the tools necessary to become a change agent and effectively use Agile to strengthen your organization. In this one day class, we will take a deep dive into how change can be approached differently based on existing organizational culture, And we’ll talk extensively about the influence that culture has on speed, risk, and receptiveness to change.
You will learn about the principles and practices of Agility and how to apply culture, organizational design and change by identifying elements you can implement in your own organization. You’ll come away with the knowledge, skills, and techniques to achieve sustainable Agility. We’ll dive into case studies and real-life examples to help demonstrate how Agility can be implemented successfully in your organization and you’ll leave with a deeper understanding of the relationship between culture and leadership mindset and behaviors.

"The last two days I attended the Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Credential 1 course taught by Anu Smalley, CST from The Braintrust Consulting Group. It was a great training with several other seasoned Agile Leaders who are creating change in their teams and organizations. I was reminded that real change takes executive sponsorship, careful consideration, and willing team members. Companies who are committed to putting in the time and allowing the right people to get in the right seats can transform the way an organization delivers. I'm looking forward to using these Agile principles as I build a team who will thrive on a culture of process and system improvement."Chris H., Global IT Solutions
