For the best results we work alongside you on site. We’ll make a coaching plan with you and get you started on your Agile journey. The coach will be your friendly guide who helps you avoid the most common pitfalls.
If you have worked with Agile already but it’s not working as well as it could the coach will observe your planning meetings, retrospectives and working habits and will help you take your Agile practices to the next level.
For beginner teams we have a week-long Agile kick-start programme that is a mix of training and coaching. For more advanced teams and individuals we provide individual coaching and team lift-offs.
Agile is not just about the development teams but it impacts all the parts of your business. Our coaches can help you to be a fully Agile organisation, or help your organisation understand where Agile teams will impact on and need support from other business areas. We can help you get the most out of your Agile adoption through working with you within areas of portfolio management, people management, enterprise metrics and product development.
In addition to the regular sprint retrospectives teams should periodically look at the big picture and assess their vision and goals and plan for continuous improvement. We’re happy to facilitate release and project retrospectives and take your team on a journey to plan their future.
If the most important factor for team performance is the combination of skills, personalities and relations between team members, the crucial question is “How do we best design teams?” We say: Trust people to know best and let them decide which team they should work in. Based on the proven processes described in our book “Creating Great Teams – How Self-Selection Lets People Excel” we’ll help you prepare for, organise and run a successful self-selection event in your organisation
It is important to start your Agile project with a shared understanding of ideas and clearly defined outcomes and step-by-step goals. We can help you start your Agile project with an Agile project inception which will guide you from idea to a planned first release. Our inception workshops draw on ideas from design thinking, UX, service design, Agile, product ownership and systems thinking.
