Appointed to move organ­i­sa­tions forward

The bene­fits of agility are now well known and accepted in busi­ness. But few compa­nies know how to trans­form their organ­i­sa­tion most effec­tively. How they can support teams in inno­va­tion or trans­for­ma­tion projects in a mean­ingful way. Currently, there are far too few expe­ri­enced agile coaches on the market who are avail­able as spar­ring part­ners for both teams and manage­ment.

This is where you come in. As an Agile Coach, you are a multi­plier of a new working world. You are avail­able to employees for ques­tions about agile working. You help teams to develop inno­va­tions and the manage­ment to take sensible steps in the devel­op­ment of an agile organ­i­sa­tion. Our training as an agile coach lets you dive deep into the agile world. You will learn all rele­vant methods, tech­niques and processes in a prac­tice-oriented way. You will learn how agile working methods can be imple­mented in compa­nies and how you can success­fully create agile commu­ni­ties in compa­nies. In this Agile Coach training, you will learn concepts and methods with which you can success­fully accom­pany and imple­ment your own inno­va­tion, trans­for­ma­tion and change projects in your company.

What I will learn?

  • The 5 day Agile Coach training takes place in five modules of two days each over a period of several months. Each training round consists of a team of 4–12 partic­i­pants, which remains the same for all modules, and usually 1–3 trainers/coaches for the 5 modules.
  • In our training, short, inter­ac­tive theory units and agile frame­works alter­nate with group work in work­shop format, joint discus­sions, colle­gial coaching and the processing of prac­tical exam­ples. You will learn agile methods such as Design Thinking, Design Sprint, Busi­ness Model­ling, Lean Startup, Scrum and Kanban.
  • During the training, you build up your coaching compe­tence in a specific module and “on the fly” by repeat­edly taking on the role of a coach. You take over the moder­a­tion and guid­ance of various exer­cises and tools (agile games, warm-ups, reflec­tion exer­cises, etc.) and receive construc­tive feed­back. On the one hand, you learn the basics of coaching and at the same time you deepen the newly learned methods and contents.
  • In addi­tion, you will receive exten­sive knowl­edge and a work­shop toolbox for your own trans­for­ma­tion and change projects with all the building blocks of an inno­va­tion-oriented agile organ­i­sa­tion. In the course of the Agile Coach training, you will get to know the other partic­i­pants very well and you will form a commu­nity that usually remains in personal contact far beyond the training.
