    The Coaching Agile Teams course is meant for ScrumMasters, agile coaches and project managers in transition – people  who are ready to take the next step beyond practices and principles and move into activating teams to achieve the full promise of agile.

    This course is tailor-made for you if:

    • You’ve had a few experiences as an agile coach and it just doesn’t seem to be working for you.
    • Your job has become routine and you notice the teams seem to be going through the motions, too.
    • Your teams get the practices and are doing well, but not getting the fabulous results you were supposed to get.
    • Your are an awesome agile coach and you want the skills that will help you earn the Certified Scrum Coach designation.
    • You are spread across many agile teams because your managers think agile coaching is not a full-time job.
    • You are not sure if the agile coach role is really right for you.


    Prerequisites
    You must be a practicing agile coach with at least 6 months of hands-on experience. Ideally, you will also have Certified ScrumMaster or equivalent agile training.  This is not an Introduction-level course and we will not be covering the basics of agile or Scrum.  In addition, you will be asked to use what you know about your real teams throughout the class so that you can leave with ideas for helping them as soon as you get back.
