Agile Team Coach

“Watching a great agile coach is like watching a magician. No matter how closely you watch, you can’t quite figure out how she does it.” (Mike Cohn)

Our world gets more complex every day. Due to the growing number of feedback loops, new problems emerge every minute. Regarding Ashby's Law, we need a complex system to create answers to these problems.

As an agile coach, your goal is to ‘design’ a social complex adaptive system that will give good answers to complex questions. These systems are called ‘teams’, or ‘organizations’. At DPS we focus on the team level. This is why we call the person who tries to have an impact on the social system, the Agile Team Coach (ATC).

At DPS it's the Agile Team Coach's job to assist a cross-functional, diverse team to work independently, and help it to become a fast-moving, fast learning team that frequently delivers results. You will assist every member in discovering and developing their full potential. Then, you will do the same for the team to discover and develop its full potential as a social system.
