Course Description

Professional Agile Leadership Essentials ( Training ONLINE

PAL E - Professional Agile Leadership Essentials

Agile leadership has a lot to offer businesses today. Organizations have changed a great deal over the years and are no longer the static, structured entities they once were. Agile teams and agile leadership respond to these changes, offering a new way to achieve better results.

PAL-E training is designed to help managers, and other leaders, understand how to approach an Agile transformation, and to guide teams to be successful. 

Agile teams and leadership bring real benefit

Agile organisations and teams thrive in unpredictable and changing environments. They are able to improve efficiency and react quickly to changing markets and customer needs.

Achieving this is not something that just happens. The transformation to become an agile organisation is profound, requiring senior leaders, managers, and team members to change how they organise themselves and others, alongside how they work and measure results. 

According to consultancy McKinsey: "the key to a successful Agile transformation is for leaders, particularly senior leaders, to develop substantially new mind-sets and capabilities." Scrum Training is a perfect first step in this.

Professional Agile Leadership Essentials training

The Professional Agile Leadership Essentials (PAL-E) course is a certified 2-day online workshop for team managers and leaders. It will show managers how to effectively develop, support, and guide agile teams to improve their performance.

Agile teams are different from traditional structures. There is much more focus on continuous development and learning, as well as self-organisation. The course provides a foundation for managers' and leaders' roles in creating the conditions for a successful Agile transformation.

Through detailed instruction and practical exercises, this course will teach leaders and managers how to form, support, and enhance Agile teams. It will guide them through the business, cultural and behavioural changes that must be made to take full advantages of the possibilities of Agile teams.
