Benefits of an Agile Coach in the Modern-Day Enterprise
- Helps Drive the Overall Corporate Vision
It doesn’t matter whether you’re dealing with a new implementation or leveling up existing processes. The key to the success of the agile coach is the support and commitment of leadership.
- Keeps Teams Focused
Agile coaches help keep organizations on track and increase throughput. This helps save money, time, and resources.
- Continuous Improvement Accountability
Many agile teams use business simulation games to identify and get workable actions to utilize in their day-to-day interactions. Often, the everyday stress of work can cause team members to lose any improvements they have identified. A coach will help the team stay focused on its continuous improvement goals while increasing its productivity.
The engagement of an agile coach will vary depending on where you are in your adoption rate. If you are just beginning, the coach may be much more hands-on to assist with the adoption rate and initial roadblocks. If you are an experienced enterprise with agile, the coach will provide value on a sprint-by-sprint basis during retrospectives. The team can do this with an external view that helps members identify new opportunities for improving efficiency.
