Introduction

An effective Agile coach helps guide teams on their journey to agile maturity. They oversee the progression of an agile team to ensure the team’s delivery of value to the organization. An effective Agile coach guides a team through the implementation of agile processes and is charged with encouraging teams and leadership to embrace the agile mindset. The Agile Coach’s goal is to give agile teams the knowledge, tools, and training so that they’ll be able to leverage agile to its full potential. They ask the right questions, provide mental and growth models, and challenge teams to deliver valuable solutions to the customer.

Students who demonstrate understanding and application of the course materials will receive the ICAgile Agile Coaching (ICP-ACC) certification.
