The Agile Coaching track explores the mindset, stances, and skills needed for effective facilitation, coaching, mentoring, and teaching in an agile team context. More importantly, it emphasizes the self-awareness and self-management required to navigate among these stances in service of teams, and to serve as a role model of agile values and principles. The track also focuses on guiding a team's journey from startup to high-performance. The knowledge-based certifications in this track are Agile Team Facilitation and Agile Coaching. Once learners obtain this foundation upon which to build competence, they can strive toward the coveted ICAgile Certified Expert in Agile Coaching (ICE-AC.)
This track is developed for Agile Coaches and aspiring Agile Coaches, including beginning Scrum Masters, looking to take the next step. Agile Project Managers, analysts, and agile team members with the desire to explore the power of facilitation and coaching also stand to gain from these courses. Agile Coaches who wish to build deep competence and differentiate themselves from their peers should pursue the Expert certification.
