Coaching Agile Teams

A Companion for ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, and Project Managers in Transition

Everything You Need to Know and Do to Coach Your Agile Project Team to Success!

As an agile coach, you can help project teams become outstanding at agile development, creating products that make them proud and helping organizations reap the powerful benefits of teams that deliver both innovation and excellence.

More and more frequently, ScrumMasters and project managers are being asked to coach agile teams. However, the role of coach is a challenging one that often doesn't exist in traditional application development. Migrating from "command and control" to agile coaching requires new skills and a whole new mindset. In Coaching Agile Teams, leading agile coach Lyssa Adkins helps you master both so you can guide your agile teams to extraordinary performance.

This practical book is packed with ideas, best practices, and checklists you can start using immediately. All of it reflects Adkins's own hard-won experience transitioning to agile coaching from traditional, large-scale project management, including the remarkable lessons she's learned from the teams she's worked with. You'll gain deep insight into the role of the agile coach, discover what works and what doesn't, and learn how to adapt powerful skills from the fields of professional coaching and mentoring.

Coverage includes

  • Understanding what it takes to be a great agile coach
  • Mastering all of the agile coach's roles: teacher, mentor, problem solver, conflict navigator, and performance coach
  • Moving from agile team member or project leader to coach
  • Creating an environment where self-organized, high-performance teams can emerge
  • Coordinating collaboration
  • Evolving your leadership style as your team grows and changes
  • Staying actively engaged without dominating your team and stunting its growth
  • Operating in failure, recovery, and success modes
  • Getting the most out of your own personal agile coaching journey  

Whether you're an agile coach, leader, trainer, mentor, facilitator, ScrumMaster, project manager, product owner, or team member, this book will help you become skilled at helping others become truly great. What could possibly be more rewarding?

Autoreninformationen

Lyssa Adkins has taught Scrum to hundreds of students, coached many agile teams, and served as master coach to many apprentice coaches since 2004. Coaching coaches one-on-one and in small groups, she enjoys a front-row seat as remarkable agile coaches emerge and go on to entice the very best from the teams they coach. Prior to agile, Adkins had more than fifteen years of expertise leading project teams and groups of project managers in large and small consulting firms, commercial software companies, and the Fortune 500, yet nothing prepared her for the power of agile done simply and well. She teaches the "Coaching Agile Teams" training course, which allows agile coaches to learn, practice, and deepen the skills and mind-sets offered in the book.
