Most agile and change transformations have management champions and agile enthusiasts who truly lead the initiative. Establishing change within their existing environments, these individuals face a myriad of challenges that benefit from focused coaching. Regular one-on-one discussion time with experienced agile coaches is fundamental to their success.
One-on-one agile coaching supports the champions and enthusiasts in applying core concepts. Coaching time is customized to support the individual and includes goal setting, artifact reviews, and directed Q&A. Sometimes the coachee simply needs another voice assuring and supporting them that they are, in fact, thinking about agile correctly. Working with experienced coaches who have been through similar challenges before gives them the confidence that they are doing the right thing!
