More and more organisations are adopting agile working methods. Teams are working according to Scrum, Kanban or larger forms of scaling such as LeSS or SAFe.
The new way of working in the teams and the resulting demands on the organisation often become a challenge for managers. Teams are taking on more responsibility and working in an increasingly self-organised manner.
Unfortunately, some people claim that management is no longer needed. We strongly disagree with this assumption. Leadership is needed more than ever in an agile working environment, but the nature of leadership will change…
For this reason, we would also like to offer a movement for managers that runs in the same way as the other movements with its specific learning content.
Agile Living Movement is one of the first group coaching & mentoring programmes in the world to be certified by the Scrum Alliance for their “Path to CSP” (2020) program.
Agile Living Movement is a lightweight framework that supports self-organised learning in community
You can experience the program completely alongside work and live online.
All Movement programmes can be carried out both live and remotely.
In a remote setting, we offer many possibilities and examples of remote collaboration in teams. This supports with additional know-how for remote-first work.
We look at different leadership styles in connection with agile working. How do we develop the mindfulness to deal well with the effects of change?
We deal with agility, the way we work and its effects. Taking part in the Movement will allow you to experience the way your teams work and the challenges they face.
What do agile teams need and what would helpful leadership look like?
How can respectful commitment be encouraged and practised?
What impact does agility have on an organisation? What does an organisation need to become more agile overall? How can leadership shape change?
On the journey to the Accreditation of Practical, you work on the learning content in a stable group of 4-7 travelling companions in a self-organised manner over 20 weeks
Bettina Ruggeri (CEC & Path2CSPEducator) and another Agile Coach accompany you on this journey with live coaching and 1:1 mentoring
The strength of the programme lies in collaborative learning over a longer period of time in a stable group. You and your peers learn with and from each other, which deepens and expands the content in the long term.
The transfer to everyday working life is reflected on together from the outset and monitored over 20 weeks, so that the effectiveness in your work is visible right from the start.
In contrast to training and video courses, you can build relationships with your colleagues and coaches who can guide, support and encourage you for at least 20 weeks.
The Agile Living Movement can begin if there are at least 4 participants who are willing to walk this path together.
You will work together on the learning objectives of the Scrum Alliance on a weekly basis in a self-organised manner. Your results, experiences and experiments will be shared and reflected upon in the regular coaching sessions.
To consolidate your work, you will receive a student workbook in which you can document your learning journey and discuss it with your mentor.
This is the first value of the agile manifesto.
And that’s why we offer supervision and coaching dojo in addition to the Scrum content. With impulses from Nonviolent Communication and Clean Language, you will receive tools and practices to sustainably develop your personal growth and that of your organisation.
We offer a total of 20 hours of live online sessions for the group and five 1:1 mentoring sessions for each participant. In addition, you will work together with your colleagues for at least 2 hours every week to discuss what you have learnt and share your experiences.
Your invested time amounts to at least 60 hours for joint learning, reflection and mentoring.
We speak German and English.
In mixed groups, we will speak English during the group coaching sessions.
In the 1:1 mentoring sessions, we will speak the language you feel comfortable with.
We work with Zoom, Miro and the Slack community of Agile Living Movement.
You can take part if a suitable group is found and you confirm your participation in writing. Your place is booked once you have paid the invoice.
In order to participate in the Accreditation of Practice Movement, you need at least 2 years of practical work experience as an agile leader by the end of the programme. Certification is not necessary. You can find more information here.
Participants from the same organisation have the additional advantage of working on common challenges and living the learning community in the company beyond the Excellence Journey.
In contrast to training and video courses, you can build relationships with your peers and coaches who will guide, support and encourage you for at least 20 weeks. We benefit from the expertise of all participants.
In addition to the coaching sessions with your learning group, you will receive 1:1 mentoring with one of the coaches throughout the entire learning journey. This involves reflection, support with the learning content and the challenges in your daily activities.
We offer Supervision and Coaching Dojo. With impulses from Nonviolent Communication and Clean Language, you will receive tools and practices to deepen your personal growth and sustainably develop that of your organisation.
We start with a joint kick-off.
There will be one coaching session and one 1:1 mentoring session per month.
You work with your peers for at least 2 hours a week.
We do supervision and coaching dojo.
We do a retrospective – for the best development of your learning journey.
In your final mentoring and coaching session, we reflect on your journey using your student workbook.
Together with your peers, you will work on the Learning Objectives of the Scrum Alliance and the content you need for certification. Together with the coaches, you will reflect on the learning content and the challenges you experience in your working life.
Working with the student workbook deepens your learning and reflection on the journey.
At the end of the programme, we can certify you as an A-CSM from the Scrum Alliance.
Working as a Scrum Master is not always just about Scrum.
Dealing with colleagues, teams and interaction play a major role.

You can build bridges and promote cooperation within the company.
