On 17 June I hosted a session at the XP2021 conference organized by the Agile Alliance.
The session was built around the experience report that was previously published about the changing role of the Agile Coach and consisted out of a short presentation and live Q&A afterwards. In the presentation I share my vision on how the role of the agile coach evolves as organizations progress on their agile journey. Different coaching needs will require agile coaches to learn new skills and adopt. I share three profiles and explain how these can contribute to the success of the transformation. Which profile do you prefer for your yourself? I liked the fact that after the presentation one participants clearly preferred the delivery coach, while another seemed to be triggered by the agile counselor. We all have
our preferences, but we should support the organization on all aspects.
I really enjoyed being a part of the conference and loved the discussions we had afterwards. I share the presentation with you, and I hope to exchange ideas with you as well.
