      One of the biggest challenge Agile Coaches face when working on large transformation projects is, trying to identify ways to ensure that the teams understand the Agile values properly and also that they are following the Agile Principles regularly sprint after sprint. It is important for coaches, to identify the right approach and also implement different ideas to ensure that the stickiness of the agile mindset is retained sprint after sprint and thus maintain the discipline required to stay on track.

      The basic operating mechanics of an agile software development process is highly interdependent. Thus, in order for the teams to coordinate and continuously deliver working software successfully within a highly adaptive environment, team communication and collaboration is critical throughout the agile development lifecycle. As an Agile Coach, it is important to ensure that the team’s agile heartbeat is beating at a consistent pace every day, every Sprint and for every Release. Once the team gets into the rhythm of working together as a true agile team, there is suddenly time for continuous process improvement, learning new skills and other best practices. This ensures that the team maintains the right momentum to move forward continuously inspite of adapting to changes, common in any agile development environment.
