Levels of Agile Coaching, The 3 Levels That You Must Know
LEVELS OF AGILE COACHING
Hi, guys, this post will be short and simple, and it will be focused on the different levels of Agile Coaching. Lately, many people have asked me what are the differences within Agile Coaching. For this explanation, I want to use a bit of what Lyssa Adkins explained in her workshop “Coaching Agile Teams.”
In her view, there are three levels of Agile Coach. Team facilitator, he is responsible for facilitating practices and collaboration on one team. Agile Coach, this level is responsible for developing teams, mentor others and advise managers. And for last Enterprise Coach, this role is responsible for developing leaders, focuses on culture and catalyzes change. Below you can see a graphic how these levels are related to each other.
This person focuses on one (or two) teams that are already “up and running.” They are developing basic skills in facilitation, mentoring or training, as well as conscious communication. A team facilitator is not yet ready for Agile adoption or transformation initiatives.
This person focuses on developing teams, other Agile Coaches & Team facilitators to use Agile well, including the ecosystem around the team. He is an expert in Lean-Agile practices and has chosen a knowledge domain focus (Technical expertise, business or organizational change). He possesses significant facilitation skills, some professional coaching skills, and is adept at mentoring and teach.
This person focuses on developing the organisation´s capacity to use Agile as a strategic business asset, including culture change, leadership development, and work at all organization levels.
Like I said this blog was based on Lyssa´s workshop that I do recommend to everyone. Below you can find more blog posts that summarize a lot of the topics that I did learn in this workshop:
