Agile Coach – SACCO

Agile Coach training in 12 days with certificate:
kyona's SACCO® Expert

Accompany teams, projects and organisations on the path to agility – Become an Agile Coach!

The agile coach for business agility supports change initiatives and masters the craft of agile transformation of an organisation. The coach helps the organisation to use agile methods by developing agile teams and by facilitating the cultural change to an agile organisation, which is urgently required for the success of an agile transformation. You will be able to introduce agile methods in large organisations and significantly support the change of your company to the necessary flexibility. You will learn to effectively support the interaction of agile teams, scrum masters and other agile coaches as well as management.

The focus of the SACCO® training is on the agile transformation of organisations (Enterprise Agility). The training thus imparts far more than the purely team-oriented working level of a “simple” agile coach or e.g. a SCRUM Master.

In companies with an agile approach, the SACCO® focuses on cross-team collaboration with all stakeholders to ensure the gradual and controlled introduction of agile working methods.
