Certified Scrum Trainer Rowan Bunning and Equinox IT have a new training course Advanced Certified ScrumMaster that is now available in New Zealand.

Yesterday Certified Enterprise Coach Michael Sahota delivered an excellent webinar with the Scrum Alliance - Certified Agile Leadership: The Secret to High Performance. The webinar was recorded and you can view it here:

Last month I attended the Wellington Certified Agile Leadership (CAL1) course delivered by Toronto-based Certified Enterprise Coach Michael Sahota and hosted by Equinox IT.
It was a two day journey into the leadership difference between 'doing Agile' and 'being Agile', and a discussion about the conditions needed to ‘be Agile’. Michael took us through his high performance playbook, with a focus on the importance of leadership, culture and change in success – and an exploration of why telling teams to "go do Agile" doesn’t result in the high performance teams we need in our organisations.
