Agile Coaches Training

Agile Coaches Training Program Overview, 6-month internal program
Creating effective internal Agile coaches in your organization

We know from experience that the only way to really create lasting change in an organization transforming to Agile ways of working is to have a team of internal Agile coaches that will continue to lead the change. These coaches focus on: coaching Agile teams to realize each individual’s potential, creating an environment to support Agile ways of working, and helping harvest the full benefits of working Agile long term – including reducing time to market, increasing predictability and transparency, and enhancing both people’s joy of and pride in their work.
