Is there a standard definition of what an Agile Coach does, or is supposed to do?

Why are there always different expectations of an Agile Coach?

We want to help expose some of the myths floating around, about the role of the Agile Coach. There are different notions and understandings of the Agile Coach role and often it is seen as someone who is doing the actual work, providing suggestions, direction, uplift for better velocity, teaching teams how to write stories, etc. All these things may have their place, but to say the Agile Coach does the work itself, is perhaps the biggest myth.

Another critical success factor for an Agile Coach is how we are engaged; too many a time we see Agile Coaches being engaged using an engagement model that is not set up for success. We will explore this and look at some ways to get the best value out of Agile Coaching.
