As a Certified Team CoachSM, you'll work with multiple scrum teams, stakeholders, and management to improve performance and outcomes.
As a Certified Enterprise CoachSM, you'll help leadership remove the barriers so the company can embrace and sustain a company-wide agile transformation.
If you’re passionate about seeing teams and organizations reach their potential, we encourage you to take the next
step — actually, it’s a leap — towards becoming a Certified Agile Coach. As either a Certified Team
Coach (CTC) or Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC), you’ll catalyze change, not only in others and organizations, but
in yourself too.
You need to distinguish yourself as an expert in your craft, and you deserve to be recognized for your
coaching experience and skills. As the largest, nonprofit certification body in the agile space, Scrum Alliance provides
a journey toward the most reputable certifications that professionalize agile coaching. When you reach the certification
milestone (or as we prefer to acknowledge it, the beginning of your coaching journey), you’ll join a global community of
world renowned agile coaches… all with the common belief that the world of work is ready to be transformed.
Recognition and Validation
Your coaching experience and skills will be peer-reviewed and validated by other CECs and CTCs. Gain confidence in knowing you have the skills to successfully lead agile transformations.
Community and Connection
Connect with a network of coaches where you’ll share experiences, opportunities, and be challenged to grow further through collaboration, mentoring, and volunteering.
Continued Growth and Giving Back
The application journey itself allows you to reflect on areas of personal and professional growth. Once approved as a Certified Agile Coach, you’ll have the opportunity to mentor others to allow them to achieve foundational and advanced certifications.
A Distinguished History
Since 2001, Scrum Alliance has supported the agile movement as the only member-driven nonprofit certifying body in the agile space. Our Certified Agile Coaching applications are rigorous with high standards to ensure our mission to create workplaces that are joyful, prosperous, and sustainable.
The world needs more Certified Agile Coaches, which is why we have robust and insightful resources to help you along your application journey (and beyond).
When you attend events or volunteer in the community, you learn to transform the world of work, so your Scrum Alliance dashboard includes a feature that enables you to track your contributions and continuing education. The courses you take, mentorship relationships you build, and resources we provide count toward the required "Scrum Education Units" (SEUs) you need to renew your certification(s) every two years.
One of the best resources is our Path to Coaching video series. These videos, hosted by Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Coaches, are insightful and smart. You will learn more about the competencies needed to be a successful agile coach.
