Description: An Inside's Look at the new Certified Agile Leadership program from the Scrum Alliance
When the Scrum Alliance asked me to join the team building out a new Leadership certification, I had mixed emotions. First, I was excited because my personal focus, training, and experience for the last few years had been in this space, and I'd seen what a huge difference it could make. Second, I was concerned because I knew that some would interpret that program as a claim that we can teach someone how to be a great leader, and do it in three days! Of course, that's not how leadership actually works.
In this session, I'll provide an overview of what the Certified Agile Leadership Program is all about, how I've seen it benefit individuals and organizations, and how I reconciled my concerns with the Certification approach.
