Agile Team Facilitation (ICP-ATF)
At this step agile coaches learn the core skills of facilitation and gain the self-leadership needed to use them well. For those working with teams on-the-ground, facilitation skills are the first step because they pave the way for team s to achieve true empowerment, collaboration, and ownership of their actions and decisions. In this way , facilitation skills help the vision of agile-done-well come true.
Agile Coaching (ICP-ACC)
Here the coach gets expert-level understanding of current lean-agile practices, they are significantly skilled in team facilitation, and has developed some professional coaching and mentoring skill. Coaches with these skills are likely operating at a scope of several teams or a program, starting new teams, mentoring others, or spending significant time working with managers and engaging with impediments outside the direct control of teams.
