I was honored to present at the Scrum Alliance(r) Austin Scrum Gathering in the Champions of Agile Track on May 23, 2019. My topic was “Why Hire an Agile Coach?”.
I don’t think anyone recorded the talk and I don’t know a good way to condense 45 minutes of information (and informed opinion) into text, so I will just summarize the objectives and conclusions here:
- How to describe an Agile Coach
- How to identify Agile Coach competencies
- How to distinguish good Coaches
- How to value an Agile Coach
- You will reach Agility sooner
- The path will be smoother
- Your Agility will be more sustainable
- An Agile Coach is a bargain
Take a look at the slides to see how we got from the beginning to the end. Meanwhile I will think about how best to share the details.
