      PAL-E LogoPAL 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 organizations and teams thrive in an unpredictable and changing environment. They are able to improve efficiency and focus better on changing markets and customer needs. 

      Achieving this is not something that just happens. The transformation to become an agile organization is profound. It needs senior leaders, managers, and team members to change how they organize themselves and others and 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.
