Agile/Scrum Evaluation

Agile/Scrum Evaluation is ideal for companies who are already following an Agile or Scrum process, but are looking for an external coach to audit their process and identify ways to improve efficiency and effectiveness. Within this coaching program, our expert coaches will perform a 360-degree retrospective with your team, your business partners, and your stakeholders. The goal of Agile/Scrum Evaluation Coaching is to evaluate and document the current usage of Agile, identify knowledge gaps, and recommend areas for improvement.

Our expert coaches provide guidance through the implementation process and help your team get up to speed faster and with less miss-starts.

Custom coaching is our most comprehensive level of coaching. It is ideal for companies who want to maximize their success with Agile on a larger, organization-wide scale.

Through a combination of in-person and over-the-phone sessions, our expert coaches will guide your team, your stakeholders, and your business leaders through every step of the Agile/Scrum adoption process with a focus on knowledge transfer.

Our approach to training at The Agile Group can be summed up in two words…

energetic and engaging

We are passionate about Agile and it shows through in every class that we teach. We not only teach Agile, we live and breathe it. Our unique approach to training focuses on hands-on-exercises and utilizes the latest brain science techniques from the field of Accelerated Learning. No matter which one of our classes you attend, you will be entertained, challenged, and engaged. We guarantee you will leave with a new set of skills that are ready to be applied immediately and have fun at the same time

Coaching Approach

When adopting Agile methods, a trusted advisor can save your team time and frustration. At The Braintrust Consulting Group, we know that the best way to support clients during a Scrum implementation is with coaching. Our experienced coaches will work with you to assess your specific needs and create a customized implementation plan. With a plan in place, we can then tailor our services to your team’s unique challenges.

Our Introductory coaching method is built for teams getting the first few Sprints planned and off to a running start. The Braintrust Consulting Group coaches, work with your team for a few days during the start of the Sprint and then return at the end of the Sprint to help your team through their first few Sprint Reviews and Retrospectives.

The Embedded approach also helps teams prepare to launch faster with even more hands-on guidance. Our coaches participate in Daily Scrum calls, guide the team and mentor the ScrumMaster (SM) and the Product Owner (PO) about working in an Agile environment. We’ll work with your project managers and team leads on communicating progress and mediating issues. Our coaches can also work with other groups within your business to ensure they’re ready for the launch, and external groups such as Human Resources as needed.

The benefits of our coaching approach include increased customer satisfaction and time-to-market delivery, higher team morale and productivity, improved communications and a team that’s prepared for frequent success. With our experienced, hands-on coaching, your business will get a jumpstart on launching a successful project.
