Agile Coaching

By Liz Sedley, Rachel Davies (2009)

What a team needs from you is guidance on what they can do and a show of courage to make these changes a reality.

My Notes

Agile doesn’t work well when a pool of people working in several projects try to apply Agile as if they were a single team. Agile assumes one project at a time.

Productivity will not improve by wishful thinking and ‘trying harder.’ At worst, it plummets under excessive pressure.

Whatever the project pressure, try to keep calm yourself and not add to the pressure on the team unnecessarily. Your mood can rub off on the team and affect then even if you don’t want it to affect them.

Refactoring is not try aesthetic organisation of the code… it’s basic housekeeping.
