Scrum Team Coaching Overview

Scrum team coaching helps make the transition to Scrum easier for development teams and those in new roles such as scrum master or product owner. For organisations and teams that have limited resource or lack of specific agile experience to help transfer knowledge, scrum team coaching becomes an invaluable fast track method to get the foundations of Scrum up and running efficiently and effectively. Scrum team coaching also helps to instil a new culture that must be established alongside applying the framework.

Activities

Scrum team coaching has the following key activities:

  • Team workshops with all the stakeholders to ensure there is an understanding of the whole Scrum framework, the roles and the responsibilities.
  • Event guidance – monitoring framework events (planning, daily scrums, review and retrospective) to ensure that best practice is adhered to.
  • Individual role coaching – supporting product owners and scrum masters in their new positions.

Helping the scrum team navigate early challenges is key to adoption and success:

  • Who attends each of the meetings?
  • When do we create the architecture?
  • How much backlog do we need before we start?
  • How do we get everything tested within a sprint?
  • What does “the definition of done” mean?
  • When will we deliver?
  • How do we know were doing well?
