Here are the key take aways!
The vast majority of people who consider themselves agile coaches do not hold master-level agile or coaching certifications.
Coaches with the same experience and certifications can expect to make less at companies new to agile than they can at companies who are further along on their agile journey.
Experienced coaches and those holding master-level certifications are most often contract hires or consultants rather than full-time employees.
Most agile coaches invest in a lifelong learning journey
Clients select coaches based on their experience and reputation, as well as for their ability to provide specific services, such as agile coaching and agile transformation.
Agile coaches make an impact by helping organizations improve in 5 areas:
Agility across the organization
Communication, collaboration, and transparency
Delivery, speed, and quality
Individual, team, and organizational metrics
An agile coach’s success is often measured based on the performance of those they coached rather than by specific coaching metrics.
