The average annual salary for an Agile Coach in US is about $138,000 and the demand for Agile professionals keeps increasing. There are a lot of Agile-related certifications in the market (PMI-ACP, Scrum Master, SAFe practitioner and many more), but most of them are focused on a certain framework, while an Agile Coach profession requires a deep understanding of an array of frameworks along with the underlying principles and values. Depending on team and product, you would need to tailor the existing frameworks or create a new framework from scratch.
This course will teach you all the Agile basics along with advanced concepts, tools and skills any successful coach needs to have.
I will start by teaching you the foundation of Agile: Agile principles, product development processes, different types of users and user research. We will then dig into product work: user stories, product backlog, planning, prioritization, estimation and reviewing. After that we will put all those building blocks together and will talk about specific Agile frameworks: Scrum, Kanban, Xtreme Programming, Lean Startup and Scaled Agile. Finally, I will teach you how to work with a team: analyzing product, process and team’s health, improving communication, approaching the Agile transformation and fixing various problems. We will also cover the most popular software such as Jira, Asana, Trello and Monday.
After finishing this course you will have all the knowledge and skills you need to become a successful Agile coach.
This course contains over 11 hours of video and downloadable guidebook. It also includes a unique Agile Maturity scorecard which would help you to quickly screen any team’s level of Agile maturity and identify areas for improvements. On top of that, you get access to Health Monitor facilitation tools.
