VIRTUAL Class is delivered through Zoom Platform and led in real-time by an experienced Braintrust instructor.

Over the last four years, the Scrum Alliance has gathered feedback from students and inspected and adapted their Certified Agile Leadership (CAL I) program. What was originally a two-day program is now broken out into three one-day classes: Certified Agile Leadership—Essentials (CAL-E), Certified Agile Leadership—Teams (CAL-T), and Certified Agile Leadership—Organizations (CAL-O). 

Led by our expert Agile trainers, this virtual, online leadership experience delivers the quality you’ve come to expect from The Braintrust Consulting Group from the convenience of your desktop or laptop. This virtual training meets the learning objectives of the Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership Essentials. Graduates will receive their CAL-E certification.

Certified Agile Leadership—Essentials (CAL-E)

CAL-E is very much about exploring “you as a  Leader”—your leadership journey, leading in a VUCA world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous) and how to lead from a position of Influence. 

Agile Leaders are flexible and capable of leading across cultures, generations, and geographies. Agile Leaders focus on building self-organizing and self-managing teams, setting a vision and supporting the team as they produce amazing results.. We’ll explore the mindset shift required for successful Agile Leadership and how self-awareness, social awareness and situational awareness are critical for a leadership role.
