The Provocative and Practical Guide to Coaching Agile Teams  

As an agile coach, you can help project teams become outstanding at agile, 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. But its a challenging role. It requires new skillsas well as a subtle understanding of when to step in and when to step back. Migrating from command and control to agile coaching requires a whole new mind-set.

 

In Coaching Agile Teams, Lyssa Adkins gives agile coaches the insights they need to adopt this new mind-set and to guide teams to extraordinary performance in a re-energized work environment. Youll gain a deep view into the role of the agile coach, discover what works and what doesnt, and learn how to adapt powerful skills from many allied disciplines, including the fields of professional coaching and mentoring.

 

Coverage includes

  • Understanding what it takes to be a great agile coach
  • Mastering all of the agile coachs roles: teacher, mentor, problem solver, conflict navigator, and performance coach
  • Creating an environment where self-organized, high-performance teams can emerge
  • Coaching teams past cooperation and into full collaboration
  • Evolving your leadership style as your team grows and changes
  • Staying actively engaged without dominating your team and stunting its growth
  • Recognizing failure, recovery, and success modes in your coaching
  • Getting the most out of your own personal agile coaching journey
 

Whether youre 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?

The subtitle of this book says it is for ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, and Project Managers, however, its guidance and advice extend to anyone associated with an agile (Scrum) team. It will also certainly help team members better understand their relationship to the work ScrumMasters, agile coaches, and project managers do for the team. And, beyond this, the book can be valuable to anyone working in a coaching capacity with any group of people, expanding the books application beyond agile-based efforts.

Scott Duncan, Agile Coach

 

Lyssa explains brilliantly how skills from professional coaching can be applied to coaching agile software development teams. What I love about this book is how Lyssa brings practical advice to life by relating it to everyday experiences we all recognize. An essential guide for every agile managers bookshelf.

Rachel Davies, author of Agile Coaching

 

As I read this book I could actually hear Lyssas voice, guiding me and sparking precious a-ha moments. This truly is the next best thing to having an experienced and wise coach sitting by your side, helping you be the best coach you can be for your team.

Kris Blake, agile coach

 

Lyssa Adkins presents agile coaching in a gentle style with firm underpinnings. She resolves the paradox of how coaching can help a team to self-organize, and shows how a nurturing environment can push teams to perform better than ever.

Bill Wake, Industrial Logic, Inc.

 

I love Lyssas three qualities of an agile coachloving, compassionate, uncompromisingsweet. Every chapter offers a compelling blend of philosophy and action, framework and freedom, approach and avoidance, as any agile book should. Coaching Agile Teams is a good candidate to become dog-eared on my desktop rather than looking good on my bookshelf. The depth and quality of expertise that Lyssa sought, sampled, and sounded out along her own coaching journey have been synthesized in her own voice of experience.

Christopher Avery, Responsibility Process mentor, www.LeadershipGift.com

 

In my experience with agile projects, the agile coach is one of the most important roles to get right. Coaching Agile Teams by Lyssa Adkins gives the details and practical insights for what it takes to be a great agile coach.

Dave Hendricksen, software architect, Thomson-Reuters

 

I remember the first time I met Lyssa at a Scrum gathering in Orlando, and realized very quickly how inspirational she would become in the agile community. This book encapsulates her thoughts and ideas into a fantastic literary work that, I believe, fills a void in our community. We knew the role of a coach was needed, but for a long time we were not sure what that role actually was. We struggled as a community to explain what to do, when to do it, and what ...

Övrig information

Lyssa Adkins came to agile as a project leader with over fifteen years' project management success. Even with all that experience, nothing prepared her for the power and simplicity of Agile done well. She has coached many agile teams and been a master coach to many apprentice coaches over the past few years. 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. Lyssa's agile experience, along with her professional coaching and training abilities, gives her the perspective needed to guide teams and agile leaders to harness agile as the competitive advantage weapon it was meant to be. She knows the transformation path is rocky. As a large-scale program manager and director of project management offices turned agile coach and trainer, she has lived it herself. This makes her uniquely able to help others change their existing world to the agile world. Lyssa holds triple certifications: Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), Project Management Professional (PMP), and Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB). She is also a trained co-active coach.
