Fractional Agile Coaching

We have deep experience working with all kinds of teams from big organizations using SAFe to start-ups looking to innovate faster.

The World of Agile is Changing

Besides the thousands of layoffs in our agile world, budgets have changed and even the expectations of leaders and teams have changed. How do you survive without an Agile Coach? How do you survive without a Scrum Master? Or not enough leaders with agile skills? Too few Product Managers?

How Can You Improve Agility With Less?

You have to pick your battles. Where do you most need the help? Can you hire someone to help you develop one particular skill or capability? Maybe achieve a short term goal?

Where Do You Even Start?

Teams are expected to "be agile" but can they define the Agile Mindset? Are they measuring what behaviors they have and don't have to get there? With our coaching packages comes access to the Measure the Mindset assessment tool

Don't Be Distracted By Your Framework

Whether you are using Scrum, Kanban, or the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), the Agile Mindset remains crucial to your success. Building a foundation of skills that define the behaviors of "being agile" improves *every* framework.
