Agile Coaching

The transformation to “agile ways of working” involves changing the way business, customer service, ICT, program and project teams work across many levels, including the adoption of Agile methods, development of Agile teams and ensuring more effective outcomes for organisations – including improving the velocity of initiatives.

Our Agile coaches are not simply responsible for organising and developing Agile teams and managing agile project outcomes; they guide, help and support organisations embrace agile as a culture shift, to properly implement an Agile methodology, whilst adopting more “agile ways of working” and continually encourage buy-in from business owners, teams, employees and key stakeholders.

Agile is primarily a cultural change or shift, to more “agile ways of working“. In most organisations and governments, it’s a tectonic shift from command-and-control management and iterative delivery practices – to a collaborative and team centric environment. Supporting and nurturing government agencies and organisations through this shift, requires someone with a depth of Agile experience and great influencing skills.
