HOW IT WORKS
OPEN AGILE COACHING IS A MOOC
MOOC stands for Massive Online Open Course. MOOCs are a way to provide learning opportunities for people who ordinarily may not be able to access agile coaching courses. We're anticipating that this MOOC will run across time zones around the globe concurrently with participants accessing the course within the same time period; collectively sharing insights and learning in small teams.
COMMUNITY LEARNING PLATFORM
Powered by the Mighty Network platform, Open Agile Coaching combines the best elements of community forums together with a modern learning management system.
CO-DESIGNED WITH THE GLOBAL AGILE COMMUNITY
Utilising a global community the course represents the latest thinking on how to conduct an agile coaching conversation. Our aim is to match or beat the two-day certified courses offered to "accredit" a person as an agile coach. Our content will be richer, more comprehensive and be specific to coaching agile adoption.
RESPONSIVE AGILE COACHING
The founder of Open Agile Coaching is Niall McShane; author of Responsive Agile Coaching. Although this course includes elements of Niall's Responsive Agile Coaching model, it is not-for-profit and independent of all certification/accreditation frameworks.
