In what ways does a Disciplined Agile Coach help?
A disciplined agile coach uses agile coaching skills and advanced discipline agile knowledge to enable teams in any part of an organization to independently improve their ways of working by embracing the DA mindset and applying the DA tool kit. Disciplined Agile Coach acquires the ability to universally recognize and apply the mindset to any circumstance and challenge. It helps the team to be self-organizing, self-learning, and self-improvement and therefore helps them to adapt to any change that can happen to their team and the organization.
A DA coach motivates and leads the team and also the organization as a whole. They empower the team members personally so that they can contribute to the betterment of the organization. Although the result is the improvement of the organization, the process which leads to it is beneficial to the members. They help in increasing the willpower and self-esteem of the team members.
DA is a complex adaptive system. A decision taken by a team directly or indirectly affects the organization. A coach must help teams to navigate through complex problems. The DAC must give an effective solution to organizational problems and not just suggest ideas that have a probability of loss. The Disciplined Agile Coach (DAC) certification aids candidates in gaining the skills they need to successfully execute agility using the Disciplined Agile toolset as well as to coach others through coaching methodologies.
