Agile Coach

[aj-uh l kohch]

Definition of Agile Coach

A person who helps people improve their ‘agile’ skills. The skills might be technical or non-technical, and improvements are typically achieved through training and/or mentoring. The Agile Coach often works with the Team Facilitator to: 1) help the Team Members understand, implement, and improve their use of Scrum and agility; and 2) help the Team identify its Kaizen every Sprint. Every Team must have access to an Agile Coach as needed; this usually requires one Agile Coach for every 2-10 Teams, with five being the ‘sweet spot’.
