What is an Agile Coach?

An Agile Coach is someone who helps organisations and teams to implement Lean & Agile ways of working. They ultimately facilitate the organisational culture change required to sustain Agile ways of working in order to deliver better outcomes for customers.

The Agile Coach can work at a personal one to one level, the team level, and at the organisational level.

They have experience of delivering software using Agile methods and share that experience with the teams they are coaching. The Agile Coach provides feedback and advice to new agile project teams in a way that empowers them to learn and evolve experimentally.

Agile Coaches need to understand where a team is up to in their Agile journey and provide an appropriate level of support to get the team to the next level. To get them to the next level, Coaches drive an agenda of improvement, challenge thinking and ask awkward questions in a safe way.

[1] ALM means Agile Lifecycle Management. Example ALM tools include Jira, VSTS, Azure DevOps, TFS, LeanKit, Kanbanize, Swift Kanban.
