What is Enterprise Agile Coaching?
With increasing interest in Enterprise Agility and therefore demand for such expertise, comes many questions and challenges. What is Enterprise Agility? What is Business Agility? How and why are they different? How will my organisation do more agile? Do I need to make everyone go agile?
Enterprise Agility and Business Agility
Enterprise Agility is the result of taking a holistic ‘whole organisation’ approach to change to get better business results in a complex and rapidly changing market. As with Business Agility, it is necessary to focus primarily on people and their relationships to each other and their work, and then facilitating better processes of how things get done. It is a structural and cultural change and not just a framework or process change. Enterprise Agility differs from Business Agility as it extends this structural and culture change to include all departments such as HR, Finance, Legal, Compliance, etc. and the Exec teams, to create a culture of success, innovation, and ability to adapt to changing demands, across the whole organisation and not just product and business teams. At AWA, we use advanced methods of systemic coaching, training, and facilitating to bring the benefits of agility to the whole enterprise. During our 5 day double ICAgile Certified Bootcamp, we cover these advanced methods through a series of practical and in-depth workshops.
Often one of the things people first learn when they attend our Enterprise Agile Coach Bootcamp is that no one person can do all of the things identified above. That Enterprise Agile Coaching (EAC) isn’t a set role but an advanced toolkit of broad skills and competencies across several domains thus enabling EACs to act as “catalysts in guiding change”.
That said, there are several light bulb moments that go off throughout this 5 day training. Resulting in a group of coaches and managers who leave with an improved toolkit and vocabulary to enable them to help their organisations be successful in the modern world.
Since last Summer we have run our five day bootcamp in three different cities globally. This spring this 5 day double ICAgile Certified Training will return to both London and Chicago.
Our vision for these classes has its roots in why we founded AWA back in 2014. And that was to provide a forum where people who were working in the wider organisation could seek to address problems they were experiencing when transitioning to agile ways of working on a large scale. These classes are the first step to unlocking the potential that having an understanding in systemic coaching, organisational development, human change process and large group facilitation offer managers, leadership and coaches working across enterprises, departments and organisations.
EXPERIENCE THE LIGHTBULB MOMENTS
Some of the key realisations that people walk away with include things like:
- evidence based techniques,
- an improved vocabulary for working with executives,
- better conversations with senior stakeholders resulting better value,
- a shifted mindset from agile to organisational goals,
- and real coaching and facilitation skills that result in lasting change.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT?
designed for coaches, execs, consultants & change agents
There’s no denying that this is a challenging 5 days. Some have said it has opened their eyes to a new way of being and doing; to a side of themselves they have rarely or never before seen. Others have overcome huge challenges that were preventing them from helping their organisations become successful. Meanwhile others have realised exactly where they were going wrong, what they could do to fix things, and start getting real results.
If this sounds like the kind of training that you need, whether you are a coach, manager or executive involved in moving towards Enterprise Agility, then sign up for one of our Enterprise bootcamps today.

I work at AWA HQ looking after day-to-day operations, speaking with people, organising events and training, and thinking up the next cool thing we can do. Outside of work I’m probably in one of 3 places – at F45, on the mat practising yoga, or out in the countryside with my husband walking our whippet, Luna.
