The Certified Agile Leader (CAL) program

The program


Agile leaders differ according to their professional background, work experience, current task, responsibility and challenges. The leadership development program is divided into three course modules from which you can put together a combination that makes sense for you:

  • CAL-Essentials Module (CAL-E) provide an understanding of the basics of agile leadership and the context in which agile leadership and principles can be effective.
    learning goals
  • In the CAL-for-Teams module (CAL-T) you will learn how to create a safe environment and promote a culture of transparency, feedback and adaptation to enable experimentation and continuous learning in your teams.
    learning goals
  • In the CAL-for-Organizations module (CAL-O) you will learn about practices and principles of agility at the organizational level.

The program relies on initiative, support from a group of like-minded people and support from the trainer (s).

In each of the modules there is

  • Preparatory materials
  • An impulse lecture on the main topic
  • A call-to-action: a case study or exercise to practice, discuss and deepen selected topics. This is followed by a “homework” in which the participants in small groups examine the transfer to their work environment.
The program takes place in German, the materials are mostly in English.
