Certified Agile Coaches - the all-rounders when it comes to agility

Our working world has become complex and demands fast, confident action. No one can keep track of everything on their own. Interdisciplinary teams and agile working methods help to be effective in these challenges. But who orchestrates the good soloists in the team to real interaction and who shapes the environment in the organization in which such teams also thrive? As a wibas Certified Agile Coach you bring the right skills and the necessary attitude for this.

Our understanding of the role of the Agile Coach

Drawing with the 7 central elements for the Agile Coach role as a house with foundation, pillars and roof.Agile coaches build an inspiring environment, spur on fellow team members, challenge and lead the way. They have ideas, tools and techniques at the ready that help individuals, support the team and move the organization forward. To do this, you need knowledge and skill, empathy and expertise. 


All these elements are part of the Certified Agile Coach training. We have developed the "House of the Agile Coach" as a guiding principle for this training program.

The Agile Coach training offers a learning journey through the "agile universe".

Together with a small group of participants, you undertake a learning journey of 5 months through the "agile universe". In a personal preliminary discussion that you have with our trainers in advance, we match prior knowledge and expectations and make sure that the training program fits your needs. We ensure a balance of theory and practice so that you can immediately apply what you have learned. Pre- and post-training assignments and personal mentoring create an individual learning path that ensures maximum transfer and guarantees holistic development.


Our coaching training is characterized by the fact that our trainers have many years of own experience as Agile Coaches, bring broad industry knowledge, and they thus convey the content from theory and their own experience.

Learning content of the Agile Coach training

The Agile Coach training takes place in 5 modules with different focuses. The modules of the Agile Coach training alternate between two and three days. They take place as face-to-face events in wibas training rooms in Darmstadt. The modules extend over five months, during which you remain together with the other participants as a learning group. The group setting enables intensive exchange and at the same time forms a protected space for joint learning.

In each module, we focus on a different content in order to illuminate the fields of application of the agile coach from different perspectives and to test them in practical exercises.


Module 1: Agile Universe

We start with the alignment of the agile equipment of knowledge and experience that everyone brings with them to lay a common foundation for all. It is about the working mechanisms behind the agile principles, about the interaction of the agile roles and about deepening aspects in the frameworks like Scrum and Kanban. Already in the first module, the contents are worked out, made personally tangible and linked to one's own everyday work.

Module 2: Product Ownership

The second module focuses on how products/services are developed and maintained in an agile manner. It is about alignment and orientation or the question of how clarification is brought about iteratively between implementers and requirements. This process and the responsibilities within it are essential for the effectiveness of an organization, regardless of the framework used (Scrum, Kanban,...).

Module 3: Systemic coaching and attitude

In the third module, you will deal with systemic coaching and its attitude. The module touches on the basics of systems theory and its importance for the role of the agile coach. You will learn systemic thinking, take an in-depth look at the topic of constructivism and its importance in leadership work and practise the art of asking questions. Finally, the question of what intersections systemic coaching and agile coaching have and what tools agile coaches can learn from systemic coaches will be answered.

Module 4: Scaling agile practices

Many organizations use agile working at the team level. For greater leverage, agile teams must work together. This is the only way to develop more complex products and services and manage dependencies. This module will take you through the concepts of key scaling models and provide immediate experience of their mechanisms of action in a simulation. On the last day, we dedicate ourselves again to reflecting on the individual learning journeys and design a conscious farewell together.

Module 5: Agile change and final colloquium

As most organizations are moving away from previous ways of working towards agility, in this module you will deal with change processes in social systems. You will work on the role of the agile coach as a catalyst for change. You will receive implementation tools for the success factors of successful change and develop a change approach that is agile in itself. 

Mentoring by experienced Agile coaches

The overall offer of the Agile Coach training includes two one-hour individual sessions with one of our experienced wibas coaches. Here you have the opportunity to clarify and deepen personal questions.

Answers to the most frequently asked questions about our Agile Coach training

What requirements should I fulfill for this training?
The Agile Coach training is an in-depth training for people who already have experience in agile working. We do not require any formal qualifications (such as Certified Scrum Master of the Scrum Alliance or PSM of scrum.org), but we do expect real practical experience, preferably through agile working in self-organized teams, to the extent of at least two years. We also desire openness to engage with topics from other industries and to self-reflect.

What do I do if I cannot attend a module?
We have not scheduled any catch-up or repeat dates for the individual modules. We therefore ask you to keep the dates of the training bindingly free. If you miss a module, we will be happy to provide you with the documents from the respective module and recommend that you catch up on the content in the learning group.

Will I receive a certificate?
Upon completion of the training, you will receive the "Certified Agile Coach" certificate from wibas.

Are all costs really included?
The course price includes all costs for attending training modules one to five, the training and learning material, break catering during the day and lunch during the modules. In addition, you may incur travel and accommodation expenses. If you wish, we can organize hotel accommodation for all modules (from the evening before each module to the last day of training - i.e. a total of 13 nights) for a fixed price of 2,000 euros.
