Adobe Systems, a global software company known for its innovative digital media and digital marketing solutions, has seen tremendous growth in recent years. As the company has shifted the focus of its products to offer more cloud-based solutions, it has grown both in revenue and in headcount.

Driven by the tremendous growth, Adobe needed a leadership development solution that was both innovative and scalable. The company decided to approach development of its growing global leadership by applying concepts from its agile software development methodology to create “leadership pods”: groups of highly diverse leaders who meet regularly to learn together through ongoing peer coaching and sharing of leading practices.
