Agile Coaching is an approach to fostering an organisation's shift to improve the productivity, the behaviours and the outcomes in the context of the development of solutions/products. It is not only about adopting framework X or Y, Agile Coaching is about how to enable people to respond more quickly and with less risk for business opportunities.
To enable this adoption, Agile Coaches can work on five elements: Catalyse improvement, Promote awareness, Boost ownership, Develop competencies and Facilitate barrier removal.
Those elements work as key objectives for Agile Coaches. For this reason, Agile Coaches must act as catalysers for the continuous improvement culture. Providing support and facilitation to the 'change journey' is the primary element during the Agile Coaching process. As Agile Coaches, we need to continuously help organisations, teams and individuals along the journey from the current state to the future state. This is the real gist of coaching and this is the ultimate purpose of the Agile Coaching DNA.
This book is an evolutionary material to share ideas and experiences about practices and techniques to catalyse improvements, promote awareness, boost ownership, develop competencies and facilitate barrier removal on the journey to the Agile adoption.
As a community of professionals we share a congruent understanding regarding what the gist of Agile Coaching is. Together, we are evolving this DNA through practices and tools to catalyse improvements in a variety of companies across the globe.
