Q: What is the difference between SAFe and CAL1?

A: On the surface, the goals of SAFe and CAL1 are similar: An Agile Organization.

SAFe has an excellent focus on Tactical elements of Agile such as the process, roles, multi-team releases. It is a wonderful way to adopt Agile practices in a large organization. One might say the focus is on Doing Agile. The focus here is on what may we do to improve things with as little organizational change as possible.

The focus of my CAL1 is cultural with an outlook towards Being Agile. How may we foster and Agile mindset to create a nimble flexible organization powered by engaged, innovative people? For this we look at topics such as leadership, org structure, culture, and organizational growth. The focus here is long-term sustainable growth from a holistic integrated perspective.

Q: What is the requirement for CAL1 certification?

A: Attending the full class is sufficient. There is no exam.

Q: Do all CAL1 trainings cover the same content?

A: Yes and No. All CAL1 trainings cover the same set of high-level learning objectives. But, each training is as unique as the instructor. Each CAL1 reflects the unique leadership and organizational development journey of the instructor.

Q: What are the pre-requisites before CAL1?

A: You are expected to have basic knowledge of Agile. This may have come to you through industry experience, reading, meetups or formal training. This course is designed for anyone seeking to foster a more “agile” high-performance organization. It is accessible and essential for leaders in innovation, lean, human resources, etc. – not just Agile.

Participants are expected to complete 2 hours of videos and readings in advance of the training. Then there is more time to focus on discussion and exploration. The reading guide will be shared with participants after registration.
