The Agile Enterprise: Coaching in an Agile World

Coaching was not necessarily a role and practice that existed when Agile started as a new approach in the 1970s. Agile began as an alternative to Lean Six Sigma which is the very mindset that is coming back to Agile as a way to 'scale' frameworks developed for small teams of software developers. Like some other practices that originated in Extreme Programming (XP), Story Points and burndown charts, the Coach role evolved to something that is hard to define. From an advisor to Senior Management, to a Trainer, or a salesman for various Agile certifications, the Agile Coach is almost always specific to software development. Agile Manufacturing and Lean Six Sigma, which may be considered much larger Business Transformations, don't necessarily have a Coach for each unit of the organization. This webinar is a Project Manager's analysis of the Agile Coach, Business Coach, and Lean Six Sigma's Master Black Belt roles.

Project managers are regularly confronted with complex and ambiguous situations in their projects. Ambiguities in projects impact decision making, evoke negative emotions such as stress or anxiety and can have long-term consequences on job satisfaction and burnout. The webinar will present findings from three interrelated studies on managing ambiguities in projects. We will present a catalog of ambiguous situations in projects, including types of ambiguities and specific examples of ambiguities in projects. We will outline and discuss individual, organizational, and situational conditions affecting tolerance of ambiguity, and provide a range of recommendations and strategies for managing ambiguities in projects. Findings from these studies were drawn from the established literature on ambiguities and uncertainties in projects, data from interviews with experienced project managers, and a longitudinal survey with 275 project managers.

"We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again, and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore."
