Are you seeing results but not the “agile” transformation in your company?
Do you want to go Agile but feel overwhelmed by all the changes?
The complexity and volume of a transformation from an existing framework to agile practices can overwhelm an organization or team. You will find that hiring an Agile coach can help improve teamwork and productivity so you can fully reap the benefits of the agile framework.
These are eight benefits that an Agile coach can bring to your life that you might not have thought of:
Coaching is available for those who aren’t yet agile
- Instant Application:An excellent program of Agile training can give an organization a great jumpstart in implementing agile methods into their existing workflow. After a few days, the trainer must leave, but the team has to pick up the pieces and take control. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Teams are accountable for putting the lessons they have learned into action. An embedded Agile coach will be on-site to help them establish good habits and move the transition forward.
- The Transition Backlog: An agile transformation must be done like an Agile project. This creates the need to have a coach create a backlog. A coach creates a transition backlog, which is a list that includes work items to help transform an organization into an Agile process. You can use it to make significant improvements in the Agile process. The key elements include resourcing, which is the hiring or designating of key roles such as ScrumMaster or Product Owner), defining Teams, conducting training, and configuring and configuring tools.
- Interested third party: Sometimes the greatest benefits of Agile Coaching are the fact that the coach comes from an outsider with no preconceived notions about your company. The coach’s experience and knowledge can help to identify areas of improvement and growth that an employee who is not trained to be agile coaches might miss.
- A Guiding Hand: A professional agile coach is a warm, experienced body that can hold your hand if you need it to make the transition to agile smooth. Coaching can help you understand the meaning of training and guide you on your way to self-sufficiency.
- Voice Of Experience:Agile coaches are often experienced in working with a variety of companies, from different industries to teams at all levels of development and with a wide range of company cultures. They have likely “been there, done that”, so they are able to confidently take on the role of an agile coach when your company’s unique circumstances present challenges.
Coaching is available for those who want to accelerate their agile transformation.
- Regrouping:Sometimes, companies that have been following Agile practices for a while may not realize the true value of agile. An agile coach can help companies identify where things are going wrong and then guide them back to the right path. This is not a generic approach to coaching or training. It requires a personalized touch.
- The Scrum Master’s Mentor:Your Scrum Master is responsible for a lot. Sometimes, a few minor adjustments in the way the Scrum Master organizes or deploys the framework can make a big difference to the individual and the team.
- Partner working on your projects:Although training was only partially theoretical, once you are able to get started with agile projects, the theory must be put aside in favor of the actual stories. A coach for agile can join your team and work with you on the project(s) that you are having trouble with. This will help you get the most out of agile.
