Agile Coaching

Agile Coaching makes your digital transformation tangible. The Agile Coach accompanies your team and company to more success and flexibility.

What is Agile Coaching?

Finding your own agile path into the digital future is a big topic for companies today. In the process, agility - wrongly - regularly ends up in "bullshit bingo". It is often equated with methods such as Scrum or Kanban.
But it's about much more than methods and tools: Agility is an attitude. An agile coach helps a company and teams build that mindset, learn the tools, and align the compass to the future. Agile coaching creates a new culture based on values like courage, openness, transparency and appreciation. And this agile mindset is necessary to meet future challenges, to still be successful in the future and to attract talent as an attractive employer.

Initial situation

The company should be fit for the digital future. But instead, processes are becoming more and more cumbersome, customers and employees are dissatisfied, and innovative strength is waning.

  • Complexity: In the past, processes and projects were complicated but manageable. Planning, control and optimization were linear. But today, the corporate world is a complex system.
  • Overhead: Far too long meetings with far too many people involved. Bureaucratic, slow processes. Long decision-making processes. Lack of motivation. Like tankers, many companies react very slowly to changes in course.
  • Isolated solutions: A web shop or a digital business process do not make the organization fit for the future. Just as little as a lonely foosball table in the canteen or isolated Scrum or Kanban projects.

Solution and benefit

Agile transformation is a highly individual journey. There is no blueprint for choosing which agile methods fit the team, project or company. This makes it all the more important to involve the employees. The coach is a process facilitator who helps to lift the solution out of the team.

  • Efficient: More performance in projects and meetings
  • Holistic: No isolated solutions. Agility affects all areas and levels of the company.
  • Best Practices: Agile frameworks such as Scrum or Kanban offer many methods and tools. It is important to select and adapt those that fit your company.
"The problem is not the problem.
The problem is your attitude about the problem.
