Introducing the Team Coaching Framework

The Team Coaching Framework™ (TCF) is an initiative by agile42 to speed up the team learning process and performance, and to help new Agile coaches

A lot of things are happening at agile42 and we are happy to share with you the latest addition to the set of tools we use to coach and train organizations that start an Agile transition or want to improve their Agile workflows.

The Team Coaching Framework™ (or TCF) creates a structured approach to coaching which aims at improving team performance by providing clear guidance and structure with the help of the coaches. It allows for members of an organization or the larger professional community to share everyone's experience and improvements.

The TCF defines Coaching Tools, instruments that a coach can introduce in the work of a team to change its behaviour. An Assessment allows the coach to measure the maturity of a team, and through Coaching Cards she can focus on a specific behavioural goal for it. Measurements help understand which Coaching Tools are the best fit to improve the team.

The list of working Coaching Tools that a professional coach may use is very large, and the TCF provides templates of Coaching Cards that help understand which Coaching Tools to use and how to apply them.

agile42 coaches use the TCF during Assessment and Coaching with teams at clients, as part of our Agile Transition and organization improving efforts. The TCF is also used and taught during the Advanced Agile Team Coaching Course we launched in 2015 and you may have seen a brief recap at our workshop during the Scrum Gathering Berlin last year: the illustration here is the beautiful graphic recording of that event by visualization maestro Benjamin Felis.

agile42 is also developing a Team Coaching Framework App: a tool to save, edit and share Coaching Tools, Coaching Cards and common metrics to measure the effectiveness of the coaching. Everything is stored for later reuse by yourself and other coaches in your organization. It lets a new, relatively inexperienced coach pick the right tools and metrics to quickly get up to speed, and to get advice from more experienced coaches.

The App will also include software allowing coaches to make online Assessments of their teams, and other professional tools.

If you decide to share your work with the larger community, you will receive feedback and improvements. The system gives you full control of your intellectual property.

The App is currently in beta testing by invitation, for further information please contact us.
