About this event

What is an Agile Coach?

An agile coach helps organizations, teams, and individuals adopt agile practices and methods while embedding agile values and mindsets. The goal of an agile coach is to foster more effective, transparent, and cohesive teams, and to enable better outcomes, solutions, and products/services for customers. ~2021 State of Agile Coaching Report

Why Become a Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Coach?

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.

What Will I Do as a CTC?

As a Certified Team Coach, you'll work with multiple scrum teams, stakeholders, and management to improve performance and outcomes.

A successful CTC candidate demonstrates years of experience coaching across multiple Scrum teams. As a CTC, you will:

  • Focus on a subset of an organization in a project or program, or across multiple teams;
  • Work with Scrum teams, stakeholders, and management to improve performance and outcomes; and
  • Effectively impact department, project, and program agility.
