The agile coach is made up of two words, agile and coach, so basically, the organization is asking for someone who has in-depth knowledge about lean-agile practices but also knows how to teach, coach, and mentor teams and individuals. It is like any sports coach where coaches are not just experts but know how to coach. Someone can be a good footballer but may not be a good coach, as coaching requires little more than just playing football.
A good Certified Agile Coach Program equips the person or a learner with coaching knowledge and the tools & techniques that a person can use during their coaching assignments with their clients.
Every person in his/her life unknowingly plays some stances of a coach (teaching, facilitation, mentoring, and coaching), sometimes they are effective and create an impact, but sometimes they don’t because of the lack of knowledge on how to play that stance. Certification programs help bring this knowledge of the concept, tools, and techniques for them to play those stances effectively in order to create an impact with agile teams.
It’s always the case that one should have complete knowledge of the area they are playing in. The market realizes the value and the need for coaching skills; hence there is a growing demand for Agile Coaches to act as a catalyst, bringing agile awareness about their values and principles, developing skills, and bringing a sense of ownership.
This certification introduces participants to foundational team coaching skills and team development concepts for starting and growing teams while focusing on teams and organizations as human systems. A key part of this certification focuses on developing an understanding of the professional coaching skillset and the value of honing these skills to serve individuals on an agile team. Agile Coach is a Change agent who facilitates change in the Organization by focusing at all levels and enabling them to deal with their challenges.
