What is Certified Agile Leadership 2 (CAL-2) training?

The Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) program is a special multi-part education and practice-based program to develop agile leadership competency and maturity. It is designed to increase your leadership effectiveness and learn how to be a better leader, no matter what your role.

CAL 2 is an advanced education, validated practice, and peer-based sharing program that consists of learning and practice across three categories. The goal of CAL 2 is to guide leaders in deepening, applying, and sharing their agile leadership learning.

CAL 2 is often a year-long journey, with deep dives into personal agility and leadership development. CAL 2 requires CAL 1, as well as successful completion of:

  • Advanced Education – additional education on a unique leadership development topic, customized to your learning journey and mentored alongside an approved CAL Educator
  • Validated Practice – taking your new skills and insights and putting them into practice back at work
  • Peer-based sharing requirements (Peer Workshop) – experience cohorts and networks from around the globe–meet and share with other leaders at global organizations and learn and share together

You will need to maintain your CAL 2 certification by earning Scrum Education Units® (SEUs) and renewing your certification every two years.
