ADVANCED AGILE COACHING PROGRAM
Online via Zoom
May - November 2022
This 6-month cohort program is the natural continuation of AACP Level 1. In this program you will not only learn more about the theory and practices that underlay Agile Coaching, you will focus this knowledge on the actual issues you are facing in your day-to-day work.
Level 2 of the Advanced Agile Coaching Program is for Agile Coaches who have completed AACP Level 1 and are deeply committed to advancing their knowledge, skills, and competency in their work.
How much time will I need to invest?
With a focus on building Agile Coaching competence, our learning is conducted via the familiar structure of sprints. These rapid iterations will allow you to observe, analyze, and iterate on the knowledge and skills you are developing throughout the program. Over the course of 10 sprints, you will explore various methods, models, theories, and practices that will help you define and enact the impact you want to have through your Agile coaching.
We will meet as a group for faculty-led learning once every sprint for 3 hours.
You will meet with your Pod once every sprint, for approximately 1-2 hours.
Much of your practice will be part of your regular job - this is how you will do most of your learning!
The typical time commitment is ~4-8 hours per week during the duration of the course. The bulk of these hours will be spent practicing what you are learning in your day-to-day job and life. The remaining time is spent participating in the online sessions, practicing with your pod, and studying materials. The biggest addition, and difference from the first level, is the case study.
What does it cost?
The tuition for Level 2 is $3,000 USD. This fee includes tuition for the course (10 sprints) plus two 50-minute coaching sessions with course faculty to support integration and application. Additional coaching sessions with faculty are available for an additional fee. Contact your course faculty directly if you are interested.
