Coaching

Why do you need coaching when you want to become Agile?

Training provides you with the knowledge about a specific topic, tools and, in case of Scrum, a common understanding about proven best practices and why agile methodologies work. Coaching builds on that knowledge and enables and accelerates the understanding of Agile Principles through everyday work practices.

Executing only the practices without having fully understood the principles behind Agile will hinder and even prevent you from reaching continuous improvement, which is crucial to a long-lasting and sustainable Agile transformation.

Our unique “Coach the Coach” Approach

Coach the Coach

Our approach is simple, but not easy. It is based on the support that we will give you when it is time to put methodologies and theories into practice. As part of our work, our agile42 coaches will train a team of internal coaches within your organization to support the transition process and to establish the change in mindset throughout the whole organization.

Team Coaching Framework™

With the help of our Team Coaching Framework™ we will be able to accelerate the new coaches’ learning and, thereby, effectively transfer our experience to your people. In this way you will be able to scale Agile within the organization, from one team to the next very effectively and consistently.

Enterprise or Start-up

We successfully support large projects and international enterprises.  But our coaches love to work in smaller assignments and with local companies too. 

What to expect from agile42 coaching

What to expect

For us, coaching is not just consulting. We do not tell you what to do and we will not do the work for you, but rather we help you to find your own solutions and optimize your processes through retrospection and continuous improvement. In order to accelerate the implementation of a new method like Scrum or Kanban, effective on-the-job coaching is the key to becoming independent from external help.

This is our aim: to help you find your way and achieve systematic continuous improvement as fast as possible. And it is only in this way that an Agile Transition can be successful and sustainable.
