Most companies that transition to Agile do so because they want the speed and innovation that Agile promises. However, to realize that organizations need solid Agile Coaches to help establish the deep, institutional capability required to become a truly agile organization. Team agility is a first step, but ultimately withers without organizational agility. Organizational agility requires an agile coaching capability to establish self-organized teams (a new organization innovation), as well as a new form of agile leadership amongst management, and a re-thinking of organizational structures, policies and culture.
Most ScrumMasters and Agile Coaches inside organizations are assigned to the role by default, quite often without the requisite skill to foster team agility, much less organizational agility. Yet, this is precisely what organizations need of them. To answer the need, an internal agile coaching capability must be built. In our years developing agile coaches, we see that the creating internal agile coaching capability is not only possible, it is quite straightforward.
