Are you ready to begin your journey as an agile coach? Are you already a coach who is looking to grow your mindset and skillset? Are you in an organization and want to see its agility go to the next level? If so, invest just 30 minutes in this experience report about growing coaching within an organization.

Building coaching skills isn't the exclusive domain of a multi-day training session. In fact, the best way to build a new skills is to gradually introduce them over time and use intentional practice to build those new skills into a habit. This session is based on running coach mentorship programs that spread the learning and practice over a period of months.

Questions we will answer in this session include:

    Why is a coach mentorship program integral to growing an organziation's agility?
    What are some mistakes to avoid when creating a coach mentorship program?
    How can intentional practice be integrated into a coach mentorship program?
    What can be done to have an effective program where participants are in different time zones?
    How do you build support for investing time and money into a coach mentorship program?

You will leave this session with a set of practical tips for setting up your own coach mentorship program.

While this experience report is based on multiple iterations of building a Coach Mentorship Program within a Fortune 500 company, the lessons apply to an organization of any size.

    Workshop
    Beginner

    Do you want to have a high functioning Agile team? If so, this session is for you! We're going beyond the rules of agile frameworks and learning to apply those principles to improve our teams and companies! The 12 principles of the Agile Manifesto capture the reasons we are able to deliver better software. This is the "why" for some of the rules behind Scrum and Kanban. The principles ought guide our decisions about practices, scaling, and solving tricky problems!

    In this session, we will use the 12 Principles of the Agile Manifesto as our foundation. Then, we will  apply techniques such as Force Field Analysis to apply the principles to your challenges at work. Lastly, we will use principles of change management to make the change more likely to stick.

    The outline for the session is:

    1. Explore the principles; which ones are present or absent in your environment?
    2. Introduce Force Field Analysis
    3. Use Force Field Analysis to explore what drives a specific behavior
    4. Use the Agile Principles to generate new options for tackling your team's challenges
    5. Explore effective change management techniques

    With these five activities, you will leave with a framework for change to apply when you return to work and continue on your agile journey.

    David W Kane - Making Movies and Software at the Speed of Thought!

    60 mins
    Workshop
    Beginner

    Director Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, El Mariachi, Sin City) is an Agile Director. He enjoys making highly creative movies quickly and cheaply. His ambition is to make movies at the speed of thought. To achieve this goal, he works in small teams to develop the ideas, visualize them quickly, shoot the movie fast, and build the movie in layers. This workshop will introduce Rodriguez's approach to film making by screening several of his 10 minute flick school featurettes and we will explore how these techniques translate to Agile software development in a lively group discussion.
