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.
