A certificate titled as “ICAgile Certified Professional in Agile Coaching” (ICP-ACC) has become a much sought-after certification for the Agile professionals, Product Owners, Scrum Masters and aspiring Agile Coaches. An Agile coach motivates the individuals, teams and organisations to be focused on the business goals, enhances the team practices and helps achieve excellence in the success of the businesses. The primary and most important goal of an Agile Coach is enabling a thoughtful communication with the client, help realise the client about the objectives that are achievable and those which may be outside the reach.
The ICP-ACC is one of the two Continuous Learning Certifications (CLCs) on the Agile Coaching track. KnowledgeHut’s ICP-ACC training focuses mainly on the roles and responsibilities of an Agile Coach. An Agile Coach plays a vital role in guiding the agile team to inculcate agile thinking and practices in the project development and creating a healthy environment for collaboration and problem solving within the agile team. The agile teams are usually expected to be self-made, i.e. who build high-quality products, communicate with the customer, effectively respond to the change and ensure on-time deliverables. But agile teams need a robust environment of mutual interest, trust and respect to grow and flourish. And an Agile Coach becomes a team leader, guide, planner and problem solver for such teams who strive to maintain focus on the business objectives and goals by enhancing the team practices in Agile.
The Agile Management training for the ICP-ACC certification will help learn the Agile Coach how to:
- Develop and adopt an Agile Coaching mindset
- Understand the roles, coaching skills and responsibilities of an Agile Coach
- Set boundaries for coaching
- Setup the team environment and create a startup agenda
- Mentor Agile roles and transitions
- Handle conflicts, resistance and dysfunctions within the team
- Conduct effective coaching conversations and define the coaching contract
- Handle the organisational impediments by identifying and addressing the issues
- Coach the team towards high performance by making them motivated and self-aware
