Professional Agile Leadership - Essentials

Live Virtual Class, June 5-8, 2023

Class Overview

Professional Agile Leadership Essential (PAL-E) is a hands-on, activity-based class in which managers and leaders of agile teams gain a strong understanding of how to best support, guide, and coach their teams to create the conditions for great agility.

Leaders and managers are critical enablers in helping their organizations be successful, yet the role of leaders and managers in an agile organization can be quite different from what they are used to. This workshop uses a combination of instruction and team-based exercises to help participants learn how to form and support agile teams to achieve better results, and how to lead the cultural and behavioral changes that organizations must make to reap the benefits of an agile product delivery approach.

Private classes, on-site classes, virtual classes, and group discounts are available!
