       Importance of Certified Agile Leadership 1 Training                                                             

The modern workplace is ever so complex and evolving at a rapid pace. In today’s time, the traditional leadership of command and control or top down management is slowly evolving to a more collaborative/progressive approach that blurs the line between hierarchical structures in enterprises globally. To address this change, enterprises need a new breed of Agile leaders who can deliver actual value and realize the true business potential.


Certified Agile Leadership 1 (CAL 1) is one such certification training that addresses in-depth Agile leadership development objectives across categories.
