Agile coach

UX Designer, Full-stack developer

A freelance Agile coach allows you to overcome the various problems faced by your teams or your company. He uses a more flexible coaching methodology adapted to the needs of the customer, the AGILE method. 

It is broken down into 4 core values to be prioritised in your company: 

  • Individuals and their interactions are more important than protocols.

  • Use operational software instead of complex documentation.

  • Customer collaboration is preferable to the simple execution of a contract. 

  • Adapting to change takes precedence over following a defined plan.

 

As an expert in Agile methods, a freelance AGILE coach supports you - individually or in a group coaching session - in strengthening the collaboration of each member of your team. 

A freelance Agile coach wears several hats: as a mentor, coach, trainer, facilitator. He relies on various management methodologies such as Kanban and Scrum, in a systemic approach.

He must be an expert in the tools applicable to the Agile method (Scrum, Kanban, Quadrant, ORID questioning, etc.).

A freelance Agile coach must be able to pass on his ideas and bring your teams together through team coaching sessions in which listening and empathy are paramount.

A freelance Agile coach can also be involved in coaching, mentoring and managing one or more employees.

How to choose a Agile coach?

After years of experience, a freelance Agile coach has developed his expertise, which provides him with a specific methodology. He is required to regularly switch from one role to another: mentor, coach, trainer, facilitator, etc. You should make sure that their preferred roles are compatible with your project. 

Their responsiveness and actions need to be tailored to the request and specific needs of your project. Depending on the profile of your teams, more or less active leadership may be required. When recruiting, remember that a Coach’s personality (soft-skills) is as important as his other skills. Your employees must have confidence in them.
