The agile team coach program by iLean

A six to eight months journey for scrum masters, team leads, agile coaches or management.

Next program starts 11th of January 2022

A program aimed at developing organisational competences

Our trainers and coaches at iLean have extensive experience in developing organisational agility.

In contrast to many classical trainings, in our program we focus on:

1.

Steady growth
A longer program allows for interleaved practice and applied learning

2.

Developing a learning mindset
Through learning we recreate ourselves, become able to do what we were never able to. Agility is not about tools and processes, but about the ability to learn.

3.

Business agility
Capable of dealing with changing environments
While there is value in consultancy we value organisational competences more
How it works

We have designed a 6-8 month program that incorporates all elements of a great learning experience. Combining interactive group training, applied workshops, individual coaching & assignments and access to the Agile Community allows for an unforgettable learning experience.

During the program we take the time to integrate and review our own organisational growth, progress and failure together.

6 – 8 months
Sufficient time to look into many different topics, integrate our learnings, space out interleaved practice and gradually improve by sharing feedback. The program serves as a catalyst for team and organisational growth. This takes time.
Training & Workshops
The training modules introduce different topics and perspectives. In the workshops we deepen our learnings, practice, and discover new ways of seeing.
Individual coaching

Increase your personal growth and leadership skills. Examine your mental models and blind spots. Or just get inspired.

iLean Agile Community
We encourage participants to contribute to the Agile community by attending and/or organising sessions

    Frequently asked questions
    Are you in doubt whether Klimaks is something for you? Not sure if your agenda will allow you to join? See our FAQ below!
    Klimaks is a development program in which participants apply their knowledge in their teams and bring back feedback to the participant group. We actually expect the participants to have a certain basic experience before they can start the Klimaks program.
    After completing the Klimaks program, you will be awarded with a Klimaks certificate. This certificate requires you to follow the entire program and work on the assignments.
    In case you miss a training, workshop or assignment, we’ll look for a way for you to catch up with the content.
    Yes, there will be homework assignments to prepare before some of the workshops.

    The Klimaks program is setup as a light-weight program with  2 to 3 contact moments (of approximately 4 hours each) per month. The homework will not exeed a few hours per month.

    We expect the participants to have basic knowledge and experience in the Agile way of working. We also assume that the participants are currently working with or in an Agile team, in order to apply the Klimaks assignments in real life.
    Due to COVID we are forced to organise all our sessions online. However, when the situation allows to meet in person again, the sessions might be organised in person. The main location for our in-person sessions is Mechelen.
