Agile Coaching

Your organization is different.  You don’t need to adopt a template out of a book or training course.  You need to adapt Agile to what you do.  That is the kind of coaching I do.  With deep knowledge of Agile Principles and Practices, I can help your teams become more Agile, in the way your teams need to become more Agile.

Agile Coaching and training is what I do.  I’ve been coaching/training since 2000.  I’ve coached hundreds of teams on Scrum, Lean, Kanban, XP and DSDM.  Before that I spent 16 years as a Developer, Designer, and Project Manager, so I can readily relate to the various roles.

Agile Training

Training is available for the following Scaled Agile Framework certifications:

  1. SAFe Scrum Master 4.5 (SSM)
  2. SAFe Advanced Scrum Master 4.5 (SASM)
  3. SAFe Product Owner/Product Manager 4.5 (SPOPM)

Courses are currently available in Austin on a regular basis, and taught by experienced Agile Coaches from the Austin Area. If you attend Agile Austin meetings, then you have likely already met us. Why take a course from someone flying in from out of town, when you can establish an ongoing relationship with a local instructor?

Facilitation

I facilitated many JAD sessions (Requirements/Planning/Design) from 2000-2007.   I used a select set of models (Business Process Models, Use Cases etc.) to quickly (hours – 1 week) set up projects for successful iterative development and incremental delivery.  

Since then, we’ve made progress in collaborative designing, and planning (User Story Mapping, Story Arcs, User Journeys, Value Stream Mapping etc). Collaborative workshops that use models and facilitation techniques can greatly reduce schedule time while improving quality. Facilitating can be challenging, but very effective when done well. I enjoy facilitating, and can help improve you and your team.
