Bagsværd, Capital Region of Denmark, DK

Do you have extensive Agile experience and the ability to share your knowledge at all levels of a complex organisation? Would you like the opportunity to play a key role in facilitating the agile transformation of a large-scale IT operation – spanning more that 200 people Globally – in a collaboration between IT and the Business? Then join us as Agile Coach!

About the area

Manufacturing IT is anchored within the Global IT organisation and has approx. 300 employees based in Denmark and India. The strategic objective of the unit is to be the IT partner for the business ensuring that we provide the IT solutions and support which is needed to support the Novo Nordisk production

solution as well as supply chain needs worldwide.

Global IT is driving the Agile Transformation within IT and in Manufacturing IT, we are proudly supporting this journey by preparing to launch two Agile Release Trains

(ART) across the ERP landscape (Enterprise Resource Planning) in collaboration across Manufacturing IT, Product Supply and Commercial Units.

To facilitate this transformation, we are looking for two

Agile Coaches to join us in Manufacturing IT.

The position

As Agile Coach your primary role is to apply your Agile competencies and experiences by coaching and mentoring the ART Leadership, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, People Managers and Agile Teams within the Agile Release Trains.

We are seeking two Agile Coaches in order to fully dedicate one coach per ART.

Each ART will consist of 8-11 Agile Teams, as well as dedicated ART Leadership Teams and Shared Resources – and will be operating across teams situated in Denmark (Bagsværd) and India (Bangalore).
Your coaching is primarily linked to employees located in Bagsværd


You will support all the various roles in order to build capabilities locally and help make sure that all ART members master the Agile disciplines and behaviours. Furthermore, you will be part of the Global IT Agile Coach CoP (Community of Practise) helping to ensure cross organisational knowledge sharing.


You have a


degree in Business, IT or another relevant field and extensive experience working with Agile transformations, preferably in large complex organisations. You have extensive hands-on experience as an Agile Coach or Scrum Master and a track record of coaching or leading high performing Agile teams. You master various coaching techniques as well as facilitation tools and methods, and you understand the importance of flexibility and change management to succeed with your ideas and beliefs. You quickly spot anti-patterns and act proactively to ensure the needed guidance and attention for the teams to get back on track. Knowledge within the SAFe framework is desirable, but not a requirement.

You are a team player and build trustful relationships with colleagues and stakeholders naturally. You have



the ability to work independently and thrive in a busy and global environment where priorities


and fast decisions are needed to move on. Success in this role requires excellent interpersonal and communication skills to build credibility and engage stakeholders at all levels.

Fluency in both written and spoken English is a pre-requisite.
