In the 2021
State of Agile Coaching Report, experienced coaches were twice
as likely to be external to organizations. Meaning they were
consultants versus hiring a full-time employee. It raised some
interesting questions to explore about the state of the field and
what the future of agile coaching was:
- What are the reasons why a coach would want to stay an FTE
versus becoming a consultant?
- Are there varied benefits to having both internal coaches as
well as external consultants working in your organization?
- What exactly are the differences in both?
- Did the pandemic and quarantine specifically impact the agile
- If I'm looking to become an agile coach, what are the various
paths I could take in order to get there?
Join host Chris Murman and a motley crew of people willing to
take his verbal abuse to discuss this topic: Jon Schneider, Todd
Thrash, and Stephen Kellogg as well as fellow AU board members
James Gifford and Jay Horsecantspellhisnamecorrectly. It's an
irreverent and uncensored conversation that lays open the
challenges the agile coaching profession faces today as well as
some hope for the future.
