Abstract:
How do you focus as an Agile Coach? And how do you make sure that your focus is aligned with business needs? These questions are on many Agile Coaches’ minds. It seems quite easy to spot a wide range of coaching opportunities. Only some opportunities are, however, recognized by the demanding side of Agile Coaching. It sometimes may be unclear what real problem Agile Coaching is helping to solve.

The impact of Agile Coaching will increase if continuous effort is being spent on aligning coaching activities with business needs. This raises new questions though: how do you actually know whether an Agile Coach is successful? Can you measure their impact? These questions are not only on the Agile Coaches’ minds, but are also increasingly important for anyone deciding on the use of Agile Coaching in organizations.
ING, a large bank in the Netherlands, started a large scale Agile transformation in 2015. Today ING has one of the largest communities of Agile Coaches in the world. Over 140 Agile Coaches support the organization in their transformation journey on a daily basis. Nienke Alma is one of them. In this presentation she will explain what ING has done to increase the impact of these Agile Coaches and to improve the transparency of the impact: the introduction of the Agile Coach assignment. Based on real examples she will give insight the writing process, the alignment with the coaching client and the fulfillment of the assignment.
