About Agile People Coach
In the future of work, HR and Managers will need to take an Coaches' role, with the necessary competence in basic human needs, behaviors, teamwork, and how to support an emerging strategy towards the organization’s purpose.
An Agile People Coach works inside an organization as an employee or a consultant and wants to spread the principles and values to every corner of the company. You want to bounce ideas and get inspired by a community of like-minded people who have the same goal: increasing business agility and helping organizations on their learning journey/transformation by supporting HR and Leaders to attain an agile mindset.
An Agile People Coach is more than an Agile Coach, although the basic understanding of agile values, agile tools and methods, systems theory, and organizations are the same. The difference lies in the deeper People’s perspective. During this training, you will learn how to coach people to find a place to be the best and create conditions for people to perform together.

This training can lead to Professional Certifications in Business Agility Foundations and Agility in HR, with Agile People and ICAgile.
All courses can be taken individually, however for the greatest benefit we recommend this or any other combination of courses that we offer. Please get in touch for more details @ [email protected]
The Agile People coach is an alternative career for traditional managers and HR professionals. It can also be relevant for Agile Coaches, as well as management consultants, who want to understand how to help HR and Leaders to attain an agile mindset and support them in change initiatives.
You will participate in 15 Intensive online 2-3 hour sessions over one month for this training. If you miss a session, you can take it back in the next course round that starts later in 2023.
The certification fee for each ICP (e.g. ICP-BAF, ICP-AHR, etc) course is NOT included in the course fee. To get an ICAgile certification, you need to complete the certification assignments, get it approved and after that you can buy the certificate from us.

Session B1-5 Agile People Foundations
Session B1: The Need for Business Agility
In today's Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA) environment, business agility is more and more critical for success. New values and principles and self-organizing teams with the right mix of cognitively diverse people close to the customer experience and empowered to make decisions are the new competitive edge.
Session B2: Emergent Strategy and Value Creation
Aligning teams around a vital purpose and generating a vision is essential to providing inspiration and creating high performance. In addition, it's imperative to empathize with customers to maximize customer value and make it visible to focus on value creation.
Session B3: Framework, Tools and Techniques
Agile is about adapting to change. You adapt to the customers' changing needs and work according to priorities to deliver the most significant value for the customer first. Using a Lean StartUp approach, you can test your hypothesis with a Minimum Viable Product. Using Scrum, Kanban, Value Stream Mapping in the whole company is not different from using it for Software development. What are examples, and how can you design your processes using the agile ways of working?
Session B4: New Ways of thinking and Behaving
The ability to recognize and understand complex adaptive system dynamics accelerates the path towards Business Agility. It is not only our organization's dynamics that we should understand and manage with "Polarity Management" and "Cynefin Decision Making Model"; but also our thinking & behaving patterns by the concept of the "Ladder of Inference."
Session B5: Business Agility as the New Normal
In today's fast-moving and complex environments, we need to be more responsive and adaptable to navigate the complexity. To do that, we need to:
- Understand how to make sense of business challenges when things keep changing
- Be able to make decisions and act when we don't have all the information we feel we need
- Create the conditions to allow the right culture to grow for everyone to perform at their best. In this session, we will recap the impact on business.
Due to our VUCA world, we will explore what is needed in the business to embrace agility, deepen understanding of the structure/culture misfit, and why transformation can fail.
Session H1-5 Agile People HR
Session H1: How HR's role is changing when we need to increase Business Agility
Design the talent/people elements needed to help support an Agile transition in an organisation and explain how different contexts can influence the approach to be taken. Job titles, competency profiles, titles, career, succession - how do we do it in an agile organisation? User stories for HR and a T-shaped HR-person. Employee Journey mapping - pain points. Examples and cases.
Session H2: How HR can use tools and practices from Agile.
Using Scrum, Kanban, Value Stream Mapping, and OKRs for HR is not so different from using it for Software development. What are examples, and how can you design talent/people processes using the agile ways of working? User stories for HR - what do they look like? Examples and cases of Agile HR in reality.
Session H3: Goals, Performance Management, Compensation and Benefits
Appraise current performance management practices and identify ways of bringing Agile thinking to enhance performance, accountability, and growth. 95/5 Exercise. Describe and contrast traditional incentive structures with Agile-friendly structures, discuss the pros and cons of each approach, and explain how you could apply them to your own environment.
Session H4: Talent Acquisition and onboarding
Design a sourcing strategy that can be used to find and acquire the "right" people to support the
strategic growth of the organisation taking values, culture, diversity, and collaboration into the hiring decision. Design an onboarding experience that enables new employees to become a part of the organisation rapidly and smoothly.
Session H5: Learning, Development and Employee Engagement
SSuggest ways to enable and support a learning mindset in a team, supporting the shift from a focus on deficiencies to a focus on the development of new skills and capabilities. Recommend different motivational tools to be applied in a context and describe how the traditional employee engagement survey is changing.
Session C1-5 Deep dive into Agile People Coaching
Session C1: Agile Coaching and the Four Roles of a Coach
Mentoring, teaching, facilitating, and coaching are the stances of an Agile Coach – they need to master all of them to be successful and pick the right stance depending on the organization, situation, and the people. But what is the difference between an Agile Coach and an Agile People Coach?
Session C2: The Agile People Coach – a new Role for HR and Managers
In this session, we examine the nine roles of the Agile People Coach and a self-assessment – how skilled are you in the different roles and where do you need to improve. What are the skills that you need to add as a regular Agile Coach, Leader, or HR person if you want to increase your agile & people skills and to be able to call yourself an Agile People Coach? We look at scenarios for practicing when to take what role.
Session C3: Professional Coaching.
To understand the Agile Coach and the Agile People Coach's roles, you need to also have some knowledge in Professional Coaching and know how to formulate and ask suitable questions to guide and lead a person to understand what needs to be done in any situation.
Session C4: My Motivation Profile as a base for Self-leadership
Who you are and what makes you do what you do is very personal and different from others' why. Communicating with people who are different from yourself and knowing how to understand what makes other people do what they do and how they are different/similar to you is crucial competence in agile environments. We develop My washing instructions and discuss how your needs affect your life and work.
Session C5: Conflict Coaching
Exploring conflict theory and finding the right balance between harmony and healthy conflict in a team or organization is key when moving towards high-performing teams. In this session, you learn different models for dealing with conflict, understanding conflict escalation and different types of conflicts, and handling conflict in a team.
Do I need any pre-competence?
You don’t need any pre-competence to attend the online course. We are tailoring the approach for the participants and your level. As a bonus, you will learn to use modern digital tools, like digital Canvases, Video meeting platforms, Kanban boards, etc.
How does the process look for this training?
We will use virtual online tools to communicate, learn and interact. You will need a good internet connection and an undisturbed workplace where you can have a quiet background. We will work in break-out sessions in Zoom and use our community platform for communication between the instructor-led sessions. We will go through all practicalities during the first session.
Are the sessions scheduled on specific days at specific times?
Yes, the sessions take place according to a schedule for the year that has been predetermined. If you miss a session, you can always take it back at a later session.
After training completion, what is the process to become ICAgile Certified?
The certification process requires finalizing the certification assignment and answering several questions after each session. When the work is completed (approved with feedback from us), you can buy your ICAgile certificate in Agile People shop. Please notethat your ICAgile for your completed assignment is NOT included in the course fee. In addition, we will make your certificate download available from ICAgile. The Agile People Participation Certificates are included in the training price after finalizing the course, and you can download the Agile People Participation Certificate after the course via the Agile people website.
