Coaching Clinic – Ask the Coach

Do you have a pressing issue that you would like to run by a seasoned Agile Coach?  Or just interested in hearing what others issues are and how an experienced coach would address it?  Then this session is for you.  As you come into the room, write your question or situation on a sticky and post it on the board.  A coach from SolutionsIQ will timebox and address as many of these as possible with the larger audience.

    The term “coach” has become an overloaded and almost meaningless term in much the same way that “agile” has.  Many individuals are calling themselves coaches who have little or no practical experience with Agile in large enterprise organizations.  Organizations are similarly confused about who they really need to bring success to their Agile transformation, and thus, are advertising for the wrong skills.

    Many agile initiatives suffer from a feeble launch.  As Aristotle once stated “Well begun is half done”.  Performing the activities associated with developing a sound charter can help increase the likelihood of success for a team or organization .  

    Beginning with the end in mind, we use retrospective techniques to develop consensus around objectives, vision, and mission.  In this workshop we introduce the components of a good charter and how those components help focus the teammates toward a common goal.  In addition, the development of the recommended charter components ensures that key questions are succinctly answered during the kickoff of a team.

    Participants will learn the various types of charters and their recommended content.  During the workshop activity teams will develop a complete charter based  team of their choice or a provided case study.
