Enhance Leadership with the ALA

As Agile methods evolve and Agile adoptions mature, the need to grow leaders who nurture Agile transformations and align with the corresponding cultural change has become critical.

While the benefits of Agile methods have sparked a wave of fulfillment and collaboration on teams worldwide, now senior managers and executives hold the key to spreading Agile methods across silos and deep into the non-IT departments of their enterprises.

Based on 15+ years of experience with enterprise Agile adoptions, landmark thought leadership and ideas curated from our Executive networks and summit events, the Agile Leadership Academy™ will prepare you to create and lead an Agile organization.

Join the ALA to gain:

  • an Exclusive Executive Network
  • Practical Tools

  • Site visits to leading Agile Organizations
