Who is this for?

The Certified Agile Scaling training is targeted towards people leading Agile change in their organizations - managers, executives, coaches - who are looking for a tailored approach to their scaling challenge. They are looking to understand what agility really means for their organization, and how to focus not on scaling frameworks, but rather the scaling patterns they need for their specific context and goals. At the end of the training, you will have acquired the necessary knowledge and tools to start (re-)designing and changing your organization with agility in mind.

What will I learn?

In this course you will learn why framework-led changes deliver unsatisfactory results and how you can avoid that by using pattern-led changes. You will learn about the importance of de-scaling complexity, change patterns, scaling patterns, and how to combine them to lead change in your specific context.

We will cover the key patterns of popular scaling frameworks such as LeSS, SAFe, and Scrum @ Scale, and go through case studies to see how organizations select different patterns from these frameworks to fit their specific challenges. This requires not only understanding the different patterns, but also how to lead change so that they actually improve the situation.

You can check out the detailed learning objectives here: CAS-S1 Learning Objectives.

What is the training format?

Our Certified Agile Scaling training is a highly engaging session, combining interactive lectures, case studies, hands-on exercises, and group discussions. The purpose is to ensure participants have the opportunity to maximize their learning experience by using case studies and exercises to put into the practice the concepts they are learning. Also, the strong focus on group exercises in the training ensures participants have a chance to hear about other people's experiences and ideas, while also having some time to work through their specific situation.

It is available in two formats:

1. Live classroom (2 full days)

2. Live online (3 days, 5,5 hours)

Regardless of the format, participants are consistently surprised by the hands-on nature of the training and how it helps their learning experience.

Earning the CAS-S1 certification will extend/renew all other certifications available, whether they are active or inactive. The new “Active through date” of the CAS-S1 will apply to all other certifications. No additional payment or SEUs will be required for that renewal cycle.

"The Product Owner training was quite insightful and has been valuable in transforming the ways of working within our team. One crucial takeaway from the course was on building the MVP in incremental stages, while keeping the customer needs as the sole compass to guide its development. I highly recommend this course for product owners as well as process improvement professionals."

Director of Yield US Operations, Kraft Heinz

"I attended Agilar’s Online Product Owner Certification Training session, and I found the instructor and course material extremely helpful in my journey to learn more about the Agile/Scrum process. The course materials were well balanced between presentation of materials and interaction with others in the session. We were able to move at a very good pace through the material with plenty of time to ask questions for clarity. As someone new to the Agile/Scrum process, I found the course material and the capability of the instructor to be very helpful for me to expand my understanding of this topic. I highly recommend this course to others who are in the early stages of their Agile/Scrum journey."
