Lyssa Adkins (ACI) on Coaching Agile Teams

Why would I attend this course?

Coaching Agile Teams is a three-day workshop for experienced Agilists who wish to dramatically increase their overall agile coaching skills and effectiveness. The course addresses the complex environments in which most Agile teams (and Agile Coaches) operate. As a ScrumMaster or Agile Coach, you are not only tasked with getting your team set up and running well, you may also be faced with the broader organizational landscape that is not as “agile-enabling” as needed. Coaching Agile Teams addresses this complexity head-on with expanded lessons in:

  • ways to see the broader organizational environment more completely, and tools to work with it
  • role complexity, including the role of managers and roles in a scaled agile setting
  • team culture and evolution
  • working with the impact of organizational culture
  • the Integral Agile Operating System™ that provides a set of thinking tools and a model for crafting powerful agile coaching interventions

The course delivers the key agile coaching content, skills and mindsets, all built on a transformational education platform. It is highly interactive and experiential: we have never had anyone complain of being bored! In fact, many students have reported that this course changed their work and even their life (read for yourself).

Who will find it useful?

  • Experienced ScrumMasters, Agile Project Managers or Iteration Managers who want a fuller understanding of the complete range of agile coaching skills.
  • Agile Coaches who want to expand their skill set and gain the ability to break-through previously intractable problems on their teams.
  • Agile managers, Product Owners and others wishing to access a broader range of skills in working with their teams.

What are the prerequisites?

This is an intermediate course for practitioners with at least 6 months of hands-on agile experience. You should also be grounded in Agile fundamentals (e.g. ICAgile Certified Professional or Certified ScrumMaster or Certified Product Owner or equivalent agile training). The course builds directly on your agile team experience –  without this, you and your colleagues will get a less than fulfilling experience. The class prepares you to act as a leader on agile teams and leave with ideas for helping them as soon as you get back.

What will I learn?

Coaching Agile Teams is a training experience that covers both the being and the doing of agile coaching, mentoring, even teaching. There’s a lot to learn, experience and practice! At the end of the course, you will be capable of applying many new tools and techniques, as well as your own mindset changes, to coach agile teams to health. As practical as it is provocative, the Coaching Agile Teams course challenges agile coaches to rise to the fullest expression of their role. Topics include:

Professional Coaching

Learn and practice the key professional coaching skills and know when to use them.

Mentoring

Practice offering your knowledge and sharing your experience while keeping accountability for taking action where it belongs — with the person who has the problem.

Teaching

Utilize insights from adult learning to amplify your teaching, whether it’s teaching the agile basics or teaching an advanced agile technique.

Facilitating

Experience many facilitation techniques you can use with your teams and emulate the expert modeling offered throughout the class.

Resonant “WE” Space

Understand team culture and relationships, the evolution of team development, how to move teams toward health and high performance, and practice designing a team start-up or reset.

Change and Roles

Articulate the key role transitions for project managers, testers, tech leads and managers and understand how to help people change, specifically related to their agile role transition. Prepare yourself to conduct a pivotal conversation.

Roles at scale

Get clear about how roles operate at scale, what each role needs to focus on, and how they interconnect.

Integral Agile Operating System™

Create an assessment of team health and performance using all perspectives through the Integral Agile Operating System™ and determine ways you can actively work with what you discover.

Conflict

Change your relationship with conflict and help the team learn to do conflict well, rather than you mediating it or fixing it.

Designing Coaching / Mentoring Relationships

Learn how to consciously “design” coaching / mentoring relationships that allow you to operate with both backbone and heart.

Coaching Stance

Craft your personal coaching stance, a powerful “come from” place that helps bring your vision of “agile done well” into being.

Learning Objectives

While mastering agile coaching skills will require both time and practice, our class will allow you to:

  • Understand and utilize the four key Skill Areas and four Knowledge Areas applied by the best agile coaches (ACI’s Agile Coaching Competency Framework).
  • Create healthy teams that are resilient, creative, resourceful and resonant.
  • Listen fully and ask essential, powerful questions that open up new possibilities and propel people into action.
  • Clearly ascertain the distinction between coaching and mentoring and know when to apply each most successfully.
  • Observe two professional coaching and mentoring demos (live) using students’ real-life agile situations.
  • Understand how to address the dysfunctional approaches to conflict teams often develop.
  • Coach and mentor people through all kinds of change, especially the change required to occupy agile roles fully.
  • See the broader organizational context more clearly and determine the best interventions, and your best actions, to positively affect it. (ACI’s Integral Agile Operating System™)
  • You’ll walk away from the course with your personal coaching improvement backlog – a tangible plan you can use to thoughtfully improve your coaching when you’re back on the job.

You’ll have many new things to try with your teams and you will probably depart with a few provocative ideas to chew on (in fact, maybe wrangle with for a while). All of these outcomes add up to your ability to become the excellent agile coach your teams and organization needs.
