Get new products and their fresh features released faster. On average, agile teams are 37% faster in delivering software to market and 16% more productive.
Spend less time on risky products and scrap them before investing too much. Agile offers more flexibility to product development, allowing you to instantly incorporate the market’s feedback on your new product or feature.
Gather feedback from your customers and adapt to it instantly. One of the main principles of agile is delivering the best possible product tailored in the best way possible to the users’ needs.
Work with a project management methodology created for and loved by developers. More than 85% of devs worldwide work in agile teams, with more than 62% incorporating also Scrum in their work.
Everyone wants to be agile, but do they do it the right way? According to some recent surveys, 90% of senior execs consider their company becoming agile a high priority. At the same time, however, less than 10% of organizations can be actually considered highly agile. Still too often agile’s major principles are thought of as flexible and breaking the rules in favor of a more classic waterfall model is common. This does not only minimizes all the positive effects of agile transition but also frustrates the employees, lowering down their productivity.
How to make sure your company really follows the agile principles and makes the most out of this amazing project management methodology? Hiring Agile Coaches might be the solution you need.
Agile Coach job descriptions often feel vague and don’t really explain enough what is the actual role of an Agile Coach in the team. We, however, will try to provide facts in the clearest way possible.
Agile Coach’s main job is to make sure that agile project management methodology is implemented correctly within the whole company. They train, coach, provide feedback. They don’t, however, manage people — they help them manage themselves, teach self-organization and accountability. Agile Coach is the manager of the agile processes, not of the people.
Some of the tasks that could be considered a regular routine for Agile Coaches are:
Agile Coach is often mistaken as a person that covers the same responsibilities as a Scrum Master. This misconception is fuelled by the fact that seeing one person transition between the role of an Agile Coach and the role of a Scrum Master is relatively common. When changing companies, Agile Coaches often suddenly become a Scrum Master — or the other way around.
It happens because the main concept behind these two roles is indeed very similar. Both Agile Coaches and Scrum Master aim to create an environment that incorporates the ideas of agile and Scrum to the highest levels and coach the people around them.
However, there is one clear distinction between the roles of Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters. The first ones operate on the spectrum of the whole company — they work with, train, and support everyone, whether these people are from the design department, IT, or sales. On the other hand, Scrum Masters are solely responsible for their specific team. They are fully dedicated to their respective developers and Product Owner and are strictly linked to them.
A specific skillset is crucial for an Agile Coach who strives to provide great results for the business. We list the most important skills of the best Agile Coaches below.
Because Agile Coaches dedicate most of their day to working with people, they are often educated in a field that focuses on soft skills. Most often they hold a degree in psychology, project management, leadership, or public relations. Less often you might meet an Agile Coach coming from a more technical, IT background. This kind of Coach will be most valuable for companies highly focused on delivering software, where most of the company members are developers.
When you want to hire an Agile Coach, you should also look for those with relevant certificates proving their skills. Some of the most relevant ones are ICP-ACC, Certified SAFe® Program Consultant (SPC), as well as Scrum-focused certifications like Professional Scrum Master or Certified ScrumMaster®.
The more tailored to your company your choice of Agile Coach will be, the faster you will see great results happening in your whole organization. What should you especially consider when you plan to hire an Agile Coach?
