Job Description:

The requirement is for a Team level Coach, with scaling experience (SAFe would be beneficial). Client is looking for hands-on Coaches, who are more practical & pragmatic in their approach, with strong foundations in Agile Principles. They don't like bookish Coaches, who can talk the talk but don't walk the walk. They want candidates who have been Coaches for 3-5 years & have hands-on implementation experience.

Cheat Sheet:
· Candidates should have up coaching experience.
· At least 3-4 years of hands on implementation (experience has to recent and continuous).
· Most of the candidates have been rejected because they claim to have coaching experience; however they are actually doing PM / Scrum master role.
· Quite a few resumes have grammatical errors (If possible fix this issue at submission level itself).
· CSM Certification is must.
· CSP & SPC4 certification is good to have.
· SAFE experience / knowledge is must.
· Awesome communication skills.
· Their Agile coach projects should be min 1 year.
Questions that can be asked to candidates during pre-qualification:-

· If they have performed in which projects?
· Can they give small write-up explaining what they did?
Best Practices that can be followed up:-
· We don't need candidates who have performed Project Manager / program manager / scrum master. Candidate can be PM and then he/she should show career path in Agile.
