An agile coach helps teams and organizations become outstanding at agile, creating products that make them proud and helping organizations reap the powerful benefits of teams that deliver both innovation and excellence.
It’s a challenging role which is a mix of coaching teams and driving organizational change. A great agile coach creates an environment where self-organized, high-performance teams can emerge.
The role of an agile coach can be temporary or permanent, depending on the organization’s needs. The guidance can help a team navigate through the rough patches in the early period when the team or management questions the value of agile.
Agile is about respect, collaboration, improvement and learning cycles, pride in ownership, focus on delivering value, and the ability to adapt to change. This mindset is necessary to cultivate high-performing teams, who in turn deliver amazing value for their customers.
