Certified Agile Leadership® 27.08. - 28.08.2019 in Cologne


Today’s workplace is a fast-paced “race” on a complex and uncertain global field. Traditional leadership thinking and practices are failing to meet today’s challenges. Leader’s must more effectively engage employees, foster creativity, speed delivery and mitigate risk to outpace the competition. Innovation is the only competitive barrier remaining.

The Certified Agile Leadership Workshop with Sohrab Salimi (Certified Agile Leadership Educator) is an interactive leadership-focused workshop building skills and competencies to effectively guide and grow agile leaders, coaches and their organizations to perform more effectively in this fast-pace, complex and uncertain environment. Leaders substantially influence an organization’s agility and effectiveness. 

This two-day workshop focuses on the leader’s own awareness and capacity to effectively guide and grow their organization’s capacity. It is the first step – the AHA! – in the leader’s journey toward improved performance and outcomes. It is the only Certified Agile Leadership class in Germany that follows the Agile Leadership Journey (ALJ) curriculum and qualifies you for the ALJ CAL 2 program. The Agile Leadership Journey is the world's most respected curriculum with leaders attending from a wide range of industries and geographies. Many companies across the globe such as SwissRe, Sanofi, McKinsey & Company and Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank are applying the Agile Leadership Journey internally to equip their leaders with the necessary knowlegde and skills to succeed in the 21st century. 

The workshop is taught by Sohrab Salimi, who is a global thought leader in the areas of agile, strategy and innovation. Sohrab is a partner in co-developing the program together with Pete Behrens.

The courses will be held in English or German. Please pay attention to the respective course language when booking.

Course Details

Leaders substantially influence an organization’s agility and effectiveness. Increasing leadership awareness and competency in their own agility as well as their competency in aligning and empowering organizational agility is challenging.

This Certified Agile Leadership Workshop is an interactive leadership-focused workshop building skills and competencies to effectively guide and grow agile leaders, coaches and their organizations. This workshop is a pragmatic application of theory and provides concrete models, tools and techniques for leaders to employ directly in their own thinking, their own behaviors, and within their organizations.

Scrum Academy - The Agile Leadership Compass Model
