Agile Coaching

Agile Coaching

Our Agile Coaching approach is customized to the needs of each client, but generally we start with an assessment of the organization, development of  a training plan, training, and ongoing coaching.

We work  to:

  • Understand the unique needs and challenges of your organization.
  • Help teams understand the core principles of agile and lean processes. 
  • Train teams on the mechanics and tools of a successful agile adoption.
  • Facilitate the discovery, planning, and implementation processes and tools to get the project team working effectively as soon as possible.
  • Establish clear and open communications between the team and all product and project stakeholders.
  • Help your organization get concrete value with agile approaches.
  • Coach at the process level and at the engineering (development) practices level.
