The changing role of the agile coach

Yesterday I visited the Scrum Facilitators meet-up. Aim of this this session was to promote the XP2023 conference that will be held in Amsterdam later this year. We like to emphasise that you can propose a session until 12 Februari. Please share your story by suggestion a topic on the conference website.

During the meetup I shared my story about the changing role of the agile coach, an experience report I made for a previous edition of the conference. The report can be found on the agile alliance website. In my presentation I used the ‘waves of agile’ from my book to explain that organization face different challenges when the progress on their agile journey. I am very pleased that two of the participants want to use this model in their organization. “I just had a discussion this morning, about this”, one of them replied,” This is just what we need to understand where we are and challenges we encounter”.  When the needs of the organization develops, so should the role of the agile coach. I shared three profiles that help to develop yourself as agile coach.

Sjoerd Kranendonk of Scrum Facilitators made a 11 min podcast about the event. Check it out.
