Share A Walk Down the Agile Coach Learning Path with Lyssa Adkins

Event Details

ABSTRACTAgile coaching has been a highly subjective and varied institution so far. From technical to transformational, agile coaches run the gamut in their experience and skill in teaching, professional coaching, facilitation and mentoring. And while there have been a couple of books outlining the competencies and skills of an agile team coach, including Lyssa's Coaching Agile Teams, our industry has no defined learning path from beginner ScrumMaster/coach to enterprise-level coach  until now.

For the last 18 months, Lyssa has been part of working groups to define learning paths for agile coaches, along with certification levels offered by the Scrum Alliance and ICAgile. This evening will be an exploration of the knowledge areas and skills of successful agile coaches, pathways to develop as an agile coach, and the certifications one can earn along the way.

Even if you don't care about certifications, come anyway. The learning paths can be used as a guide to your development whether or not you want the letters after your name.  This is an area that is emerging fast -- come hear the latest.


SPEAKER:  In addition to being Agile Richmond's personal coach and a board member at large, Lyssa Adkins has taught Scrum and Agile Coaching to well over a thousand students, coached many agile teams, and served as master coach to scores of apprentice coaches. In both one-on-one settings and small groups, she enjoys a front-row seat as remarkable agile coaches emerge and go on to entice the very best from the teams and organizations they coach. Prior to agile, Lyssa had more than fifteen years of expertise leading project teams and groups of project managers (she was even a PMO Director -- twice!), yet nothing prepared her for the power of agile done simply and well.

Lyssa believes that agile is more than an alternate project management methodology and is passionate about deepening the roles in agile – specifically agile coach and agile manager – to help agile move into its fullest expression.

Lyssa holds an alphabet soup of certifications: Certified Scrum Coach (CSC), Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), Project Management Professional (PMP), Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB) and Organization and Relationship Systems Certified Coach (ORSCC).  She is also a trained Co-Active Coach and Leader.

In 2010, Lyssa authored Coaching Agile Teams: A Companion for ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, and Project Managers in Transition.
