Plaster Group’s Agile Coaches work with our clients to provide coaching, training, and mentoring on Agile Practices. They work with business stakeholders to determine how Agile methodologies can help their business be more successful in realizing goals.
Agile Coaches define and improve an organization’s Agile practices. They coach and direct a business in its adoption of Agile, or advance programs already in place. They supervise and guide software development teams, typically 5-9 members in size, towards improved self-organization and cross-functionality. Agile Coaches possess an extensive knowledge of different Agile methodologies including Scrum, ScrumBan, Lean, KanBan, and SAFe, and know which environment is best for the project at hand. Working with executives, management, as well as product, design, and development teams, they drive organizational productivity through Agile values, principles, and practice. Throughout this process, they utilize Agile techniques such as User Stories, BDD, Continuous Integration, Continuous Testing, Pairing, Automated Testing, and Agile Games.
