“The Agile Coaching Academy is everything I wished existed when I first set out on my coaching journey. A mentored, coach-driven experience that grooms the next generation of great Scrum and Agile Coaches.” – John McFadyen

Who should attend the Coaching Academy?

The Agile Coaching Academy is the perfect vehicle for individuals who are currently Scrum Masters or Agile practitioners with a reasonable amount of experience as Scrum Masters. Ideally, delegates would hold the Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster certification or equivalent credential from other certification authorities.

The Academy is aimed primarily at organisations who are looking to create, embed, and cultivate Agile capabilities within their own organisation. Agile Centre do also facilitate assessments and interviews to assist in identifying great candidates for the Agile Coaching Academy within the organisation.

If your organisation are seeking to become a high-performance, Agile organisation that unleashes people’s creativity and passion, reach out to our Agile Coaching Academy team and discover how we can assist you with that.

What you will learn.

There is a significant difference between an Agile practitioner and an Agile Coach.

The obvious being the ‘coaching’ element, in that coaching individuals to their highest performance is a separate and valuable skill set in itself that must be mastered both theoretically as well as in practice.

What is less obvious is the difference between being a Scrum Master with a few years of experience in an Agile environment, who occasionally teaches others their knowledge or via their experience versus an Agile Coach who enables, facilitates and mentors high-performance agility across all levels of the organisation, at both the local and/or enterprise level.

Graduating from the Agile Coaching Academy makes YOU the difference.

Makes your organisation the difference between hiring the very best Agile consultants versus cultivating the very best Agile coaches within the organisation.
