Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

If you want to transform a large organization with agile, you need to build an internal competency for training and coaching. Join us as we share our story of how a large global organization grew their ability to provide in house agile training and coaching, by working with two external agile coaches. We will also share the impact on the organisation as a whole of embarking on this learning journey, and how it has resulted in organisational structure changes.
You will hear from one of the internal agile coaches who has now trained hundreds of Product Owners across her organisation about her journey, and from one of the external coaches about the approach they used, which you could apply to growing your own coaches and trainers.

Learning Outcomes:
  • The benefits of internal coaches and trainers vs external providers
  • Understand an effective pattern for growing trainers and coaches within your organization
  • Know what things to watch out for in an internal agile coaching team
  • Learn how training can unite previously silo'ed teams
  • Understand the importance of a training and coaching focus in an agile organization

Is herding cats on PCP a recognized job title? If so, that's me! Implementing agile in a large corporation of 2000+ product development ninjas is as challenging and rewarding as it gets. I’m eager to share our hits (and misses) as we continue our journey to agile nirvana!
