Facilitate It Yourself! Self-facilitated Team Launches

Too many teams and not enough coaches? What if teams could launch with very little help? Can you walk out of the room and expect results?

Coaches in large enterprises may be working with dozens of teams or even more. What happens when they want to get alignment, create working agreements, create a definition of done, etc and there aren't enough coaches to help them?

Imagine a setup where the team does it with almost no help from a coach?

The outcomes are amazing and more importantly, the team emerges with much stronger self-organization skills than they had before because they had to exercise those skills to reach the goal.

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you for the submission to Agile India 2017. This looks like an interesting concept and I am interested to see you delivering it to Agile India 2017. Do you have some successful implementation stories and your experience about what worked and what failed and how you handled it? Thanks!

    Best Regards,
