Certified Agile Leadership Trainings

Live-online or on site. The perfect preparation for your role as a manager and leader in the agile company

Your personal learning journey

Learn the latest leadership concepts for agile organisations.

Based on your awareness and understanding of the fundamentals of agile leadership, we work with three focus areas: lead yourself, lead your teams and lead your organisation.
We empower you to confidently set out to lead with agility and master agile transformation in your workplace - starting at team level and extending to the whole business and organisation.

We offer three certified Agile Leadership (CAL) foundation trainings: CAL Essentials (CAL E), CAL for Teams (CAL T) and CAL for Organisations (CAL O).

Experienced Agile Leaders give valuable practical tips

Our trainers and coaches not only pass on knowledge, but also tips & tricks for the everyday life of an Agile Leader.

Interactive experience instead of PowerPoint karaoke

Just get flooded with information? Not with us. If you book a training session with improuv, you will get a taste of what it’s like to work as an agile leader: Learning collaboratively and interactively.

Being able to try things out

Knowledge is only one side of the coin. To really understand something, you have to experience it. We promise inspiration as well as the opportunity to try the learnings out in the safe space of the training.

Training organisation

We offer the following variants of this training:

    • Face-to-face Training
    • Live-Online Training
    • Both variants also available as Inhouse Training

For our live online trainings, we use innovative tools to provide a valuable learning experience for our training participants.

Timing

The training takes place over several sessions, between 09:00 and 18:00, during the booked period.

Virtual training room.

We create a shared video/audio “room” where we present and discuss content together (slides, videos, real-time visuals (e.g. virtual flipcharts)).

Group Breakout Rooms.

Break into virtual groups (just like creating table groups in a Face-2-Face training). Each virtual group (e.g. a group of 4 participants) works together on a group exercise in its own video/audio room. During the group work, the individual groups are individually supported by the trainer – just like in an on-site training. After an agreed time, all groups return to the main ‘training room’.

Virtual whiteboards

Visualisation plays an important role in our face-to-face trainings – this is of course also true online. Through visualisation tools, we share training content, enabling collaborative learning and sharing.

Technical preparation

Of course, everything should run smoothly right from the start. Therefore, before each of our live online trainings, a joint onboarding of all participants to our tools takes place.

Technical platforms

We use Zoom (optionally Microsoft Teams for in-house use) and Miro.

The most important thing about face-to-face events for us is to deliver training that excites you and protects everyone’s health.

Time schedule

The training takes place in the booked period all day, between 09:00 and 18:00.
We have adapted the training concepts for this and also need your assistance to ensure the safety of all training participants and our trainers:

  • We conduct our trainings according to the 2G guidelines (vaccinated or recovered). In addition, we adhere to the current official guidelines (including mouth-nose protection, minimum distances, ventilation).
  • Please also observe the current hygiene concept of improuv or the hotel or co-working company where the training takes place. We will send this to you shortly before the training.
  • Please do not come to the training if you have symptoms that could indicate an infection. Please contact us at training@improuv.com, we will then rebook you for a subsequent training session without any problems.
  • If you test positive for Covid-19 within 14 days of the training, please notify us immediately. We will then of course inform the other training participants, trainers and supporters anonymously.

 

What else we look out for:

  • To be able to ensure spacing, we have lowered the maximum number of participants.
  • We ensure regular ventilation and hygienic premises.

 

For trainings in our office, Giesinger Bahnhofplatz 9, the following applies additionally:
Please be sure to use mouth-nose protection throughout the stairwell and lift! There are medical practices in our office building.

Certification information

This is how CAL certification works: Depending on the training, these are recognised by the Scrum Alliance as accepted qualification.
