Coaching Beyond the Team with Esther Derby & Don Gray
March 12 @ 9:00 am - March 14 @ 5:00 pm$2595
Practices and Methods for Influencing Organizations
As a team lead, coach or ScrumMaster, you know that some of your team’s problems are not within in the team. But handing the team’s manager an impediment list isn’t always the best strategy to get the problems fixed.
As an Agile Coach, a ScrumMaster, Consultant, or Leader in your organization, your job includes helping people work more effectively. Sometimes that means directly helping individuals and teams. But often, your work involves solving problems—and engaging other people to solve problems— people beyond your team.
Join Esther Derby and Don Gray to learn methods and tools to expand the scope and value of your influence.
LEARN HOW TO COACH BEYOND THE TEAM and engage others in joint problem solving.
Agile coaches and Scrum Masters face many challenges. They have no authority to insist people listen or do, yet managers and executives expect organization-wide results from their activities. Furthermore, many executives see clearly how teams should change, but don’t see how the environment or their own actions impact teams. Learn how to discover the factors in the organization that affect your team’s ability to adapt to change and deliver value. Practice techniques to help others see how the environment supports or impedes your team – so your teams keep improving and don’t revert to “the way we’ve always done it.”
Through simulations and small group activities we’ll explore common organizational patterns and dynamics. Through discussion and practice, you’ll learn tools that will help you communicate the changes needed to unleash productivity.
