Agile Coaching Institute develops competence and confidence in the profession of Agile Coaching, from the ScrumMaster of a few teams all the way to the Enterprise Agile Coach. We do this by evoking and catalyzing the development of Agile Coaches as agents of organizational (and societal) transformation, combining education, coaching, and mentoring within the Integral Agile Transformation Framework™. We provide rich, transformational programs, as well as thought leadership, in the emerging field of Agile Coaching. We have trained over 4,600 Agile Coaches over the past 6 years as we do our best to give definition to Agile Coaching as a true profession.
The Agile Coaching Institute was founded by Lyssa Adkins and Michael K. Spayd in 2010. After establishing a strong Agile Coach training and development program — and earning the reputation as the thought leaders in the field of Agile Coaching — in 2013 we expanded our platform, completing the base agile coach curriculum with The Agile Facilitator course. In 2014, we further expanded these offerings with the ultimate coach training — Agile Coach Bootcamps — plus workshops for managers and executives, and a new exploration of an Integral approach to Agile Enterprise Coaching, the Integral Agile Bootcamp. In 2015, we introduced a public class for managers, The Agile Manager, and we completed the Agile Coaching development path with the launch of the Competence Cohort for Agile Coaching Mastery, a rigorous practice-based 10-month certification program.
In 2016, we are launching a sister company, Trans4mation, to bring the insights gained from our training experience into the world of coaching and consulting for organizational transformations. Going forward, Trans4mation will be the home of leadership development and training, including The Agile Manager workshop. This frees ACI to focus on its original mission of being a full-service training and development resource for Agile Coaches at all levels.
