Lyssa Adkins, Co-Founder and President- Agile Coaching Institute
Lyssa Adkins came to Agile as a project leader with over 15 years’ project management expertise. She admits that, even with all that experience, nothing prepared her for the power and simplicity of Agile done well.
Lyssa’s Agile experience, along with her professional coaching and training abilities, gives her the perspective needed to guide teams and Agile leaders to harness Agile as the competitive advantage weapon it was meant to be. She knows the transformation path is rocky. As a former large-scale program manager and director of Project Management Offices, she has lived it. This makes her uniquely able to help others translate their existing world to the Agile world.
She is the author of the Coaching Agile Teams book, which was published in 2010 and still regularly enjoys a spot in the top 10 agile books.
Lyssa believes that Agile is more than an alternate project management methodology and is passionate about deepening the roles in Agile – specifically Agile Coach and Agile Manager – to help Agile move into its fullest expression.
Certifications: Certified Scrum Coach (CSC), ICAgile in Expert Facilitation & Agile Coaching (ICE-AC), Project Management Professional (PMP) and Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB). She is a deeply trained professional coach: Co-Active Coach, Organization and Relationship Systems Certified Coach (ORSC) and International Coach Federation Associate Certified Coach (ACC).
