The Agile Coaching Manifesto: The Agile Manifesto re-written for Agile consultants

We have come to value:

  • Individuals and interactions over PowerPoint presentations
  • Actual increased ability over understanding frameworks
  • Helping students over following a set curriculum
  • Adjusting to needs of the student over preparing for certification
  • Our highest priority is to increase the ability of the student through early and continuous learning
  • Welcome changing needs of students, even late in the course. Agile courses harness change for the learners’ advantage
  • Deliver small, absorb-able increments so the students actually learn
  • Teach individuals on their own projects and in their own environment. If they stagnate, trust that they are doing their best and see how to help them.
  • The ability to create software of value is the primary measure of progress.
  • Agile teachings promote sustainable learning.
  • Continuous attention to Agile skills enhances agility
  • Simplicity–the art of maximizing the amount not required to teach–is essential.
  • The best learning paths are those that allow for ability to emerge by attending to skills that enhance future learnings.
  • At regular intervals, the consultant reflects on how his students are doing and adjusts the curriculum as needed.
