Scaling Agile Coaching

How do you leverage the full capability of a large workforce to get faster to market? With the help of an Agile Velocity coach, activities are aligned and coordinated to optimize value delivery across multiple teams.  We will support and guide product, project, leadership and business stakeholders to implement scaling best practices and resolve cross-team impediments to agile delivery. Our coaches have experience applying various scaling frameworks (SAFe, LeSS, SoS, etc) and will apply the practices best suited to the environment in order to get the full engagement of teams under a coordinated program.

Scaling Agile Coaching Outcomes

Create Scaling Infrastructure

Working with leadership and teams, Coaches will determine which scaling framework is best for the organization. Coaches will help implement the planning strategy including creating mechanisms to forecast work across multiple teams and a way to balance the need for responsiveness with the need to become predictable. We will help you select and implement tools to support the agile adoption (Jira, AgileCraft, etc.).

Create visibility around the initiative, impediments, and progress

What is the impact of change? How will teams know when real progress against the goal is being made? Coaches will work with leadership to set goals and create a system to track progress in addition to analyzing the environment to identify impediments and determine quick solutions.

Prioritize Initiatives

The Coach will support leadership in creating a system for identifying and prioritizing initiatives. They will work with stakeholders to order the initiatives in a way that strikes a balance between value and complexity.

Achieve Product Flow

Now that initiatives are prioritized and infrastructure created, it is time to optimize end-to-end product delivery. Coaches will examine the entire value stream for ways to limit dependencies and minimize handoff, optimizing the entire system. In addition, current impediments will be addressed and a system created to mitigate future organizational roadblocks. Opportunities to apply DevOps practices will be identified and rollout strategies will be defined.

Create Value-Driven System And Culture  

The Coach will engage stakeholders to shift from a project-based mindset to a product-based mindset. They will work with the teams to create a common product vision and then partner with business to define and support the vision. The Coach will also help teams to engage stakeholders faster to shorten feedback loops.
