Lyssa Adkins

Lyssa Adkins came to agile as a project leader with over fifteen years’ project management success. Even with all that experience, nothing prepared her for the power and simplicity of Agile done well. Since 2004, she has taught thousands of people in basic agile and advanced agile coaching, coached many agile teams and been a master coach to dozens of apprentice coaches. Coaching coaches one-on-one and in small groups, she enjoys a front-row seat as remarkable agile coaches emerge and go on to entice the very best from the teams and organizations they coach.

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 large-scale program manager and director of project management offices turned agile coach and trainer, she has lived it herself. This makes her uniquely able to help others change their existing world to the agile world.

Lyssa holds key certifications: Certified Scrum Coach (CSC), Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), Project Management Professional (PMP), and Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB). She is also a trained co-active coach and will soon be an Organizational and Relationship Systems Certified Coach (ORSCC). For more information, visit www.AgileCoachingInstitute.com.
