Agile Coach | Glossary


An Agile Coach is the individual responsible for helping individuals, or teams adopt and improve Agile methods. His/her responsibility is to help people rethink and change the way they go about the process of development. The Coach’s role involves both training and consulting. He/She is involved with the organization in transformation after the training is over, as well.

The Coach’s responsibility is also to help the teams apply Agile/ Lean thinking to context specific environments and challenges, and eventually adapt methodology towards challenging the existing environment. All of this taken together, makes the Coach into an effective change agent.
