Agile Coach, is it just a trendy title or a valuable asset?
It has been well noticed that the rise of agility in the business environment has created new roles. This is obvious everyday in the recruitment platforms, and one of these main roles is the Agile Coach. So, what are the responsibilities of an Agile coach, why and how can he be helpful for the companies.
As we live now in a VUCA environment (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) there is no choice for any company to survive in the market other than being dynamic, adaptive and quick to respond to market changes, that is why being Agile is essential in this era.
So if any company aims to adopt agile practices and mindsets, one would be wrong to assume that this can be achieved by simply sending their managers and employees to get some training on Agile methodologies. This would be a piece of cake but unfortunately, any mindset change and organizational transformation is not as fast or straight forward as this. In fact, this type of change is much bigger and deeper than just a few training sessions to be delivered, it is the job of an Agile Coach to guide and deliver this type of transformation in an organization.
As an Agile Coach, changing people's mindset is my passion, coaching them to realize value is my eagerness, and this can't be done without transparency, openness, integrity and collaboration
