You Are:

A SAFe Program Coach who embodies an Agile mindset and is passionate about empowering an Agile culture. You have experience coaching, guiding, and supporting executives, managers, product owners, Scrum Masters, and others-mainly on the client side but also within Accenture. Your superpower? Using the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to help companies apply Lean principles and practices so they can boost performance, accelerate business change, and drive disruption. You do it by challenging the status quo to promote an environment and culture of continuous improvement, experimentation, and innovation. And you lead by example with your top-notch listening, facilitation, and conflict-resolution skills.

The Work:

  • Advise organizations through their Lean-Agile transformation, using scaling frameworks and identifying and optimizing value streams

  • Work with senior leaders to define strategies and roadmaps for transitioning to Lean-Agile mindsets and practices using the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)

  • Lead coaching activities, mainly in SAFe, across functional areas

  • Lead workshops and training sessions to educate people on Agile values, principles, and practices, especially as these relate to SAFe

  • Mentor and pair with change agents and stakeholders in client organizations to help them become Lean-Agile champions and build lasting Agile skills

  • Coach and mentor more junior Accenture|SolutionsIQ team members on how to influence organizational change and remove barriers to transformation

  • Support sales activities by helping create/present proposals and taking part in onsite visits to prospective clients

For now, all Accenture business travel, international and domestic, is currently restricted to client-essential sales/delivery activity only.

Please note: The safety and well-being of our people continues to be the top priority, and our decisions around travel are informed by government COVID-19 response directives, recommendations from leading health authorities and guidance from a number of infectious disease experts.
