Team Coaching is the single most effective method to help teams develop Agile capabilities. Team coaches help teams achieve high performance through the mastery of Agile practices.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 04, 2016
SolutionsIQ, the world’s largest pure-play Agile consultancy, has become a partner of the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) as a Member Training Organization, and will be offering courses leading to ICAgile certifications in Agile Coaching and other areas.
“There is wide agreement that Team Coaching is the single most effective method to help teams develop Agile capabilities,” said Charlie Rudd, SolutionsIQ CEO. “Nevertheless team coaching is in its infancy. Industry guidance is needed for practitioners to better understand what team coaching is as a vocation, a profession and a discipline.”
Team coaching is a competency distinct from executive coaching, that has emerged over the last couple of decades from the rapidly growing Agile industry. Team coaches help teams in a business setting achieve high performance through the mastery of Agile practices and the development of team autonomy and self-sufficiency. They also help Agile teams integrate their work products into the organization’s broader value stream.
“The Team Coaching Learning Objectives published by ICAgile were developed by the industry’s leading experts on developing Agile coaches,” Rudd continued, “That’s why we are using the learning objectives first to improve our development program and a bit later on to refine the coach development programs that we offer our clients.”
Ahmed Sidky, President of ICAgile, welcomed this step: “SolutionsIQ has historically made significant contributions in helping specify Learning Objectives in our Agile Coaching and Enterprise Coaching programs. We are delighted to now have their ongoing support as a Member Training Organization.”
