Coaching Teams to Adapt Safely

You’ve been appointed the manager, lead, or Scrum Master of a team expected to “go Agile”. Or perhaps you’re guiding a team who needs to adopt a more iterative, incremental approach to their work, whether they know it or not. Motivation problems, focus problems, disagreements about priorities, feelings of overwhelm, disruptions to the flow of value, these are primary risks associated with teams changing the way they work. How do you help them change safely? What would help them to avoid the chaos that usually accompanies being told on Monday that “it’s time to change”?

We combine ideas from the Theory of Constraints, psychology, and organizational dynamics to help leaders feel better prepared to guide teams through this kind of transition.

Audience

Anyone in a leadership position—not only managers—who needs to help teams change. This course focuses on adopting lightweight, incremental and iterative approaches, such as the approaches that we commonly call “agile”. This course is not an introduction to Scrum, Kanban Method, XP, nor any other Agile framework.
