About the International Agile Coach Bootcamp Course

As an Agile coach you are the ambassador and role model for your organization. It’s a challenging role where you apply the Agile values, principles and coaching practice in order to bring Agile transformations to life. Do you have the ambition to become an independent professional coach and motivate people at an individual and in a group level? Join this interactive twelve-day bootcamp at the Gladwell Academy headquarters in Amsterdam.


The course schedule will be divided into 3 blocks of 1 week each, spread over 3 months.


This will be an intense but definitely interesting journey to explore with your fellow Agile Coach group members. To give you some time for yourself between the course days, we planned Wednesday as free day of training. You can use it to work by yourself, using the Spaces co-working facilities, or do some sightseeing around Amsterdam.


The program is carefully designed for beginner-level as well as experienced Agile coaches who want to develop themselves further in the coaching profession. Broaden your coaching expertise and deepen your knowledge about Agile transformation and get ready to guide teams and individuals within your organization.


These Agile Coach Post Graduate participants received their certification in 2018.

During this Agile Coach Bootcamp you will learn:

  • To become an independent Agile coach
  • To strengthen your coaching and personal development methods
  • To guide Agile transformations at a team, individual and organizational level.



The duration of the Agile Coach Bootcamp is 12 days in which you complete three levels in order to become a fully-trained certified Agile Coach:

  • Foundation – Introduction to Agile Coaching – 4 Days
  • Practitioner – Deep-dive into the Agile context – 4 Days
  • Advanced – Coaching the Agile transformation– 4 Days

Another option is to join the Practitioner or Advanced module on its own. Depending on your experience, starting from the Practitioner or Advanced level is possible.

Program – Twelve days

The training days take place from 9 am to 5 pm, including lunch and a break.


Week 1: Foundation – Introduction to Agile coaching (day 1 to 4)

Starting point of the personalised coaching programme. Every coaching path originates from a coaching need. This is our starting point for the training course. Through learning by doing, we reflect on talents by trying out different coaching styles. In this way you explore what style relates to you most. The next step would be exploring the context around the coaching question.


Week 2: Practitioner – Deep dive into the Agile context (day 5 to 8)

The second module goes one step deeper. We keep exploring the Agile context and dynamics surrounding the coaching interactions. Your personal talents and other people’s talents will be mapped. We will build a toolkit full of interventions you want to use as a coach. While getting a deeper understanding of the Agile context you develop yourself as a coach, moving from the operational towards the tactical and more strategic level.


Week 3: Advanced – Coaching the Agile transformation (day 9 to 12)

Uncover the full potential of the Agile coach. This level is meant for the more experienced coach. We explore leadership styles and group dynamics impacting Agile transitions. We apply the impact of the Agile way of working to leadership environments and compare this with best practices taken from Agile transformations. During this last stage we connect tools with the talents and knowledge discovered by the group.
