My workshop from Agile Australia 2012 with Adrian Smith called “Agile Coaching Workshop” is available on SlideShare. The Agile Coach is a critical role in helping leaders, teams or individuals…
I was unable to attend Agile Australia 2012 and as a result missed out on what looks like an awesome “Agile Coaching Workshop” presented by former colleagues Craig Smith and Adrian Smith. These guys have many years of practical experience between them, and as mentioned once before, when they speak it pays to listen.
The slides from the workshop are available on Slideshare and on Craig’s blog (which is where this post links to). Although these are only slides they contain a lot of content that will be useful for those unable to attend the workshop. A preview of the slides had previously been posted and shared by myself too.
For me the section on identifying personal areas of strength and weakness provided me with ideas for improvement – and where I could broaden my skills in the coaching department. I shall be trying out the Agile Coach Competency Matrix and contacting one of the guys for some advice.
I am not an Agile Coach by title and never considered myself a coach – I feel I am more of a Agile practitioner trying to support teams and leave a legacy that will being maturity and delivery success long after I leave. These slides whilst not making up for missing the workshop may give you ideas for assessing and improving your own Agile skillset.
Am sure the guys would appreciate some feedback on the slides and would love to hear from anyone who attended the workshop. I wonder if either Craig or Adrian would fancy presenting a version of the slides at the Agile APN in Auckland some time?
