Professional Agile Leadership Essentials (PAL-E) Course

Professional Agile Leadership Essentials™ (PAL-E) Course Overview

Becoming an Agile organization is a profound transformation that requires senior leadership, middle management, and Agile team members to not only… change the way that they organize their work, manage that work, and measure the results of the work… but also change their mindset! The Professional Agile Leadership course supports this essential development.

Agile transformation is hard. Agile teams cannot do this on their own… they need help from the entire organization and in particular; leadership! The changes for all involved are profound, but equally… so are the results when everyone’s goals and ways of working are aligned.

Over the 2 days of the PAL-E course, understand how to best support, guide, and coach their teams to improve their agile capabilities.

The Professional Agile Leadership course provides a foundation for the role that Agile leaders play in creating the conditions for a successful Agile transformation. The PAL-E course will reaffirm that leaders and managers are critical enablers in helping their organizations be successful, yet the PAL-E course the highlights role of leaders and managers in an Agile organization can be quite different from what they are used to.
