For assignments coaching teams, I generally take one or more of three approaches:
- Training – either I provide my standard training or create a custom training using many of the same modules used in my standard training with a few custom modules
- Q&A driven – I meet with the team for 30-60 minutes, usually over Zoom, and answer questions based on my extensive experience with many other teams. Sometimes the team asks me in advance to prepare a presentation on a particular topic, but if so, I generally limit this presentation to 10-15 minutes. I prefer interactive coaching.
- Observation followed by Recommendations – Sometimes I will attend a team’s Sprint planning, daily standup, Sprint review, Sprint retrospective or similar meetings as an observer. After, I will make recommendations in regards to how the team can improve and make these meetings more effective.
