Format: Taschenbuch
Rachel and Liz provide a compelling overview on Agile Coaching. In their book, they give great hints for coaches in XP, Scrum or even Kanban teams. Their book is separated into four major parts. In the first part they discuss the basics for any coaching activity. Leading people and helping them grow is discusses in detail. In addition for Agile coaching the team building process is most relevant. The second part discusses how Agile teams plan their work and how the coach should help them therein. Standup meetings alongside with planning meetings for the release and the iteration are handled. Finally, keeping the planning and the progress visible through big charts and the team board is an issue discussed. The third part strives the quality criteria on Agile teams. The common search for the definition of "Done", test-driven development and clean code are topics handled here. The fourth and last part deals with reflection: customer demonstrations, retrospectives, and self-improvements. Thereby the four parts discuss to a great detail everything an Agile coaches will experience in their work.

The book format introduces in each chapter into the material, digs into more details in the sub-chapters, and concludes each chapter with a list of hurdles an Agile coach may face alongside with a checklist for the reader to review the contents of the chapter. This format makes learning from it very compelling. In addition it's very easy to come back to the content starting in the checklist, dealing with the hurdles or taking a closer look in the table of contents in front of the book. The book is a must read for anyone wanting to coach teams - it does not only help on Agile projects, but preferably there.

A Book for Every Software Manager Developer 1. September 2009
Von Methods & Tools Software Development Magazine - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
There was a time when software developers worked with consultants that will do things for their company or teach some technical knowledge. Agile approaches have brought forward another type of people: coaches. According to Rachel Davies and Liz Sedley, a coach doesn't tell you what to do, rather she shows you how she thinks you might do things and hope that it will help you to improve your situation. She leads by example. It is not easy to write a book on this type of topic. The authors recognize this situation and manage to achieve a good balance between general advice and practical usage reports.

The first part of the book is concentrated on the basics of coaching and communicating in software project. The software development curricula are often weak on "people" skills and you are not always lucky to find the right person as a supervisor when you get out of school. The second part goes through the different activities of a typical Agile project (daily meeting, user stories definition, planning, etc.) and discuss how coach can help a project team to achieve its goals. Each chapter has a final checklist and the book is also full of "personal stories" from the authors that enhance the theoretical advice, applying it on real situations.

Although the title of the book and some of its content might make you think that its value is limited to an agile context, I will recommend this book to every person that has some supervision function in software development organizations and to every developer who believe than acquiring additional "people" skill might improve its work environment. Just changing the way you talk with colleagues could lead to having more sunnier days at the office.

Practical, thorough reference for aspiring coaches 6. Oktober 2009
Von Gerry J. Kirk - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I echo Yves' statement in that I wish I had this book when I started out coaching teams. The book covers all the bases to get started as a coach.

For coaches like me who have a few years' experience, some sections might seem dry, but overall you will gain insights in many areas. The PrOpER (Problem, Options, Evaluate, Review) model for deciding what to do in a situation is an example of something I learned. Overall, I feel that Agile Coaching helps me go to a deeper level on the practices I am already using, as well as teaching me about technical practices less familiar.

The book is an easy read, organized so you can dive into the topics that matter most to you now and can be used as a quick reference later.

My road to learning how to be a more effective coach involved scouring posts and articles online, discussing in mailing lists and talking to other coaches. Agile Coaching is a one-stop shop, packed with practical advice, examples to work from and stories from the trenches.

Agile Coaching 23. Februar 2010
Von General Dogsbody - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a non programmer I was not looking forward to wading through another Agile book, but was pleasantly surprised to find it full of sensible advice for "normal" people. I've found a lot of great ideas, many common sense ones, which I can use to help institute our fledgling Agile practices. Many of the techniques suggested fit with educational practices, and which, from long experience as a teacher have proved to have worked. I'm recommending it to the Agile "drivers" in our business.

Grow Yourself with Agile Coaching 2. Januar 2010
Von Lisa Crispin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Agile Coaching, in my opinion, isn't only for people who coach agile teams. If you're in the software business, you'll learn something valuable from this book. Start with the last chapter - "Growing You". The only way to succeed in our industry is to continually learn and improve, and this chapter gives great suggestions how to do that.

This book is a model of concise, clear writing. It's packed with information in the form of narrative, bullet points, graphics, photos, stories of real teams and projects, exercises, tips and examples. The authors have been walking their talk for a long time, so you can feel confident about following their advice. Their flair for language makes the book fun to read. It could be a quick read, except you'll find yourself stopping to reflect on your own experiences, and thinking about how you could apply the technique you just read about on your own team. Each chapter includes hurdles you may face, and a checklist summarizing action items for you, the reader.

I particularly enjoyed the little vignettes with dialog from a typical team illustrating topics such as "Not Quite Done Yet" and "Getting Ready to Demo". The authors have insight into all aspects of coding, testing, and managing software teams. You'll find advice you might not expect in a software-related book, such as "Be kind to yourself". The focus on people and teams will make you a better person and team member.

A Recognition That Agile Methods Must Work In A Social & Organizational Context 19. November 2009
Von Ira Laefsky - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
There was a time when it was believed that software development methodologies were a set of tools that could be taught and explained on their technical merits alone. Two decades ago when I was involved in the adoption of Knowledge-based and Rule-based Systems in a large Insurance Company it was thought that successful adoption of a new software methodology was a largely technical process that must be learned as a particular set of skills. Explaining what Team-based development Methodologies are, and their successful implementation requires much more than that. Rachel Davies and Liz Sedley describe and illustrate the Team Collaboration, Communication and Coaching Techniques that will insure the success of Agile and Lean Methodologies. They provide clear examples of the issues and methods of achieving clear communication and team buy-in. Illuminating and informal stories and pictorial illustrations are given that will ensure clear communication, Socratic/participatory learning and team member partcipation. They illustrate what it means to be a successful coach in Agile Methods and all team-based technology learning. I highly recommend this succinct guidebook.
