What is the difference between a course and a program?

A course can be a great experience but it is often like going to a great movie: when the movie ends, you are back to reality and nothing has changed. You may feel inspired but you have not really changed. Lasting change in mindset and behavior requires practice over time. That is why we need a program that lets you practice over time and allows you to build a community.

Our Agile Coach Program

The program combines theory with insights gained from practicing the theory to allow for positive learning feedback loops. We do that by spreading a 4 day workshop out over a 3 months period. We kickstart the program with a 2 day startup that allows the participants to get to know each other, clarify expectations and set their learning goals. We follow up with shorter learning labs, 3.5 hours every other week, online. There is ”agile coffee” session, where the participants get to choose the topics to discuss. These are in the weeks between the learning labs and 1 hour long, online. We also support and coach each participant individually between each learning lab.

Expected program outcomes

  1. Developing individual Agile Coaching skills. 
  2. Building a “learning community” of Agile Coaches for sustained continued learning
  3. Each participant delivers an outcome in their organization as an integrated part of the program by leading their own change initiative within the program
