Scrum Alliance Certified Team Coach℠ (CTC)
A Certified Team Coach works with Scrum teams, stakeholders, and management to improve performance and outcomes. Organizations employ Certified Team Coaches to provide coaching, facilitation, training, mentoring, impediment management, and leadership in support of collaboration, development consistency, and value delivery across multiple teams and departments.
Unlike a ScrumMaster®, a Certified Team Coach works across multiple teams. And unlike a Certified Enterprise Coach®, a Certified Team Coach focuses on a subset of an organization in a project or program, or across multiple teams.
This certification offers a recognized credential to qualified coaches who have experience with many teams or departments and can effectively impact department, project, and program agility.
As part of the Certification Via Coaching program, CTCs may recommend up to 50 individuals annually for whom they have provided a minimum of 25 hours of face-to-face, one-on-one, or small group Scrum coaching (eight individuals maximum) for Certified ScrumMaster® and Certified Scrum Product Owner® certification. Individuals recommended for the CSM® certification must pass the CSM exam. In order to recommend individuals for the CSPO® certification, the participating CTC must hold the CSPO certification.
