The Agile Transformation Coaching (ATC) intermediate program picks up where training such as the Certified ScrumMaster course and other agile introductory courses leave off. It goes beyond agile practices and principles and into the world of coaching teams on their deliberate and joyful pursuit of high performance — the kind of performance that astounds clients and delivers results. This program offers critical skills for ScrumMasters, agile coaches and managers of agile teams and organizations.
The flagship courses in this program are the Coaching Agile Teams course and the new Agile Facilitator class. These course package (plus the new CAT Integration “3rd Day” tele-workshop for those taking the Coaching Agile Teams 2-day format), helps the agile coach move from theory to application.
- Coaching Agile Teams: The Mindset & Skills of Great Agile Coaching (3 days) transitions the practitioner past conventional agile coaching models into advanced coaching, facilitating and mentoring frameworks that form the platform for coaching high performance teams. Beyond the typical agile curriculum, Coaching Agile Teams frequently catalyzes a transformational process in attendees to advance them to the next level in their coaching.
- The Agile Facilitator: Catalyzing Collaboration, Delivering Results (2.5 days taught in 2 calendar days) is an essential course for anyone in an Agile leadership role, especially Scrum Masters and Agile coaches. The course meets the requirements for the ICAgile facilitation-oriented learning objectives in the Agile Facilitation & Coaching track, and results in a class certification.
- CAT Integration “3rd Day” takes the skills learned in the Coaching Agile Teams class into your everyday work life. It also covers additional material needed to meet the requirements of the ICAgile Agile Coach learning objectives if you took the classic 2-day version of Coaching Agile Teams. CAT Integration “3rd Day” is offered as a 7-session / 2 month tele-workshop to allow people in all locations to join in.
- Coaching and Mentoring Circles. Six agile coach colleagues and one master coach form a coaching or mentoring circle. Using coaching, dyadic and accelerated learning formats, these circles create a powerful container to advance coach’s learning and growth. Over a period of three months, the circle moves through a learning curriculum. Participants create their own development goals and the group helps them hold accountability to those goals, as well as providing feedback and support (6 sessions / 3 months).
