Course Overview

The Professional Agile Leadership™ Essentials (PAL-E) is a 2 day training that provides a foundation for the role that leaders play in creating the conditions for a successful Agile transformation. The training is a unique mix of theory & practice, optimized for the best learning experience.

Leaders and managers are critical enablers in helping their organizations be successful, yet the role of leaders and managers in an Agile organization can be quite different from what they are used to. To succeed in a changing world, organizations need to become more Agile, more responsive to customer needs and market changes. This training will equip leaders and managers to help their organizations change.
