Coaching Agile Teams by Lyssa Adkins

As an agile coach, you can help project teams become
outstanding at agile, creating products that make them proud and helping
organizations reap the powerful benefits of teams that deliver both innovation
and excellence.

More and more frequently, ScrumMasters and project
managers are being asked to coach agile teams. But it’s a challenging role. It
requires new skills—as well as a subtle understanding of when to step in and
when to step back. Migrating from “command and control” to agile coaching
requires a whole new mind-set.

In Coaching Agile Teams, Lyssa Adkins gives
agile coaches the insights they need to adopt this new mind-set and to guide
teams to extraordinary performance in a re-energized work environment. You’ll
gain a deep view into the role of the agile coach, discover what works and what
doesn’t, and learn how to adapt powerful skills from many allied disciplines,
including the fields of professional coaching and mentoring.
