Coaching Agile Teams 3.0 with Lyssa Adkins & Michael Hamman [Coaching & Facilitation] From £1700 + VAT
Coaching Agile Teams is a three day certified workshop for experienced Agilists who wish to dramatically increase their overall agile coaching skills and effectiveness. Coaching Agile Teams 3.0, is updated and expanded to address the complex environments in which most Agile teams (and Agile Coaches) operate.
When the Agile Coaching Institute started teaching Coaching Agile Teams in 2010, the main job of most ScrumMasters and Agile Coaches was to get teams up and running well. Now, Agile teams are almost the norm, although many are not running well. And, if they are, they can easily be held back by the broader organizational landscape that is not as “agile-enabling” as needed. Coaching Agile Teams 3.0 addresses this complexity head-on.
