Virtual Peer Workshop: CAL II Certification (CAL II)
Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Credential I
Culture Workshop: CAL II Advanced Education
Building on our two-day culture workshop, the purpose of this workshop is to give CAL Certification II candidates the opportunity to present to the group and then discuss their position as an Agile leader during a live Q&A session. You will be required to prepare and deliver a formal presentation where your peers will ask questions regarding your leadership experiences.
As a part of this final requirement, there are number of homework assignments for each candidate. To assist with this process, you will be assigned a CAL facilitator who will guide you through each step and coach you toward success.
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.

"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
