The Agile Coaching Growth Wheel
Love this newest iteration of the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel that Scrum Alliance is sharing! The wheel is based on the model for Agile coaching from Lyssa Adkins and Michael Spayd, adding new depth and definition to support and aid Agile coaches as they develop and improve.
In the wheel, there are nine skill competency areas identified for an Agile coach. These are: self-mastery, agile/lean practitioner, serving, coaching, facilitating, guide learning, advising, leading and transforming.
To help coaches on their coaching journey, each skill area has 5 skill levels of beginner, advanced beginner, practitioner, guide and catalyst.
While still a work in progress, there is an assessment tool to help you asses your skill level. Currently the assessment is a work in progress that focuses on the one competency area of serving the business. There are plans to expand the assessment tool to the additional competency areas.
What a great idea to help professionalize the Agile coach role, and deepen our understanding as we look to our own self-improvement!
