Change Agent Map – Transforming the Agile Coaching Competency Framework

For me a ‘mandatory’ part of my job is reflecting on how good I am at helping my clients at their transformation. Also looking at what gives me energy and where I can improve myself. As a continuous learner I need help to focus on a few things at a time instead of learning all the things at once! (I’m the kind of person that runs into mobile Safari’s limit of having max 500 tabs open…)

In this regard one of my most valuable tools has been the Agile Coaching Competency Framework [PDF], created by Michael Spayd and Lyssa Adkins. Besides helping myself, I have also mentored and coached quite some agile coaches, change agents, Scrum masters, etc in their learning journey. I find the framework gives me and them good guidance to conduct an appreciative inquiry interview around their personal development.

If you just came here to download the free goodies, here is the PDF with the change agent maps and explanations. Use as you wish, all I ask is to please respect and not remove the references to the original framework and this blog, thanks!

All of you have probably seen one of those whiteboard-style animated videos. You see a hand with a marker visualizing the concepts which you hear in the voice-over. They are often made to easily and visually explain concepts or as a nice way to help understand the highlights from inspiring talks (TED-like) or books; like this one on Drive by Daniel Pink [vid].
