Coaching with Agility in Mind
At Agility in Mind we believe in helping organisations, teams and individuals improve their delivery of long term value – using agile principles and practices as an enabler for change.
The majority of our coaching engagements follow a simple model:
- Discovery – finding out what the client’s issues are and formulating a roadmap.
- High impact training – ensuring everyone understands the basics and has a common vocabulary.
- Coaching delivery – using a combination of tools, such as workshops, coaching, leading by example, and mentoring, we help teams put their skills into practice.
Ultimately, we’re aiming to take the client on a journey to become self-sufficient so they can continue to drive improvements and adoption without dependence on a long term agile coach.
There is no such thing as a typical week at Agility in Mind. One day you might find yourself delivering a BDD training course for a start-up, the next a Story Mapping workshop for a blue-chip organisation. One thing is certain, there’s plenty of variety. We have a healthy internal culture of sharing lessons learnt and new ideas through our quarterly team days and regular meet-ups.
