Agile Coach

The Role of an Agile Coach

One of the new roles introduced by agile software development is that of the Agile Coach. Until agile came along coaches were confined to the executive suite or the sports field. As with any new role it takes a while before it is fully understood and scoped. Agile teams can, and do, exist without the Agile Coach role being filled but such teams do not necessarily achieve peak performance. In a recent study Scrum teams without an Agile Coach or coaching support increased their productivity by 35%, while those with the Coaches’ support recorded 300% or greater improvement.

What is the Agile Coach role?

The role of the Agile Coach may have originated in IT, but it’s now in strong demand across other industries as organisations see the benefits of working in an Agile way. For some people the title Agile Coach is self-descriptive but for others it leaves the questioner none the wiser. To put it simply, an Agile Coach help a team or individual adopt and improve Agile methods and practice. An Agile Coach helps people rethink and change the way they go about development.
