Agile Coaching & Training
Our Agile and Leadership coaches help leaders and teams create their own clear organisational strategy with goals for success.
This helps shift to an environment where clients and the entire organisation have a shared purpose for which they feel ownership. Teams are curious and motivated to achieve these goals effectively.
This leads to people seeking new knowledge, experimenting and learning from success and failure. This culture and mindset creates a place of self-sustained continuous improvement.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
If you need agile in your enterprise, either adopting first time or improving current practices Giles is your ‘go to’ person.
— Nick Cox, Head of Transformation at AltHAN
Our Coaching Approach
Leaders of organisations set strategy and goals that everyone in the organisation aims to achieve. We coach leaders not only to think through and identify the strategy and goals but also to share these clearly with both clients and the organisation. Sharing these well leads to a motivated, purposeful environment where all operate as one team.
We also help the leadership to reflect regularly on the current strategy and goals and make adjustments when needed. We coach leaders to determine measures of success that indicate whether goals are being met. Having these measures establishes a data driven, test-and-learn approach that improves the flow of value to clients.
To achieve the goals effectively, leaders, teams and clients need to learn, adapt and continuously improve together. We coach, train and mentor so they all become engaged and encouraged to learn, develop and move towards a growth mindset. This mindset leads to courage and curiosity to experiment and adjust to new ways of working.
We facilitate team workshops, meetings and one-to-ones, to train in agile ways of working such as Scrum, Kanban, scaled agile frameworks and Lean. Our training also includes elements that examine the bigger picture such as systems thinking, design thinking, DevOps, agile portfolio management, flow, value stream mapping and delivery frameworks. We run training programmes, coach and mentor across the whole organisation for departments including, but not limited to, HR, marketing, support and finance.
All organisations are different in terms of which ways of working are effective for them. We help teams with different levels of experience experiment and measure the outcomes to find out which ways of working result in their improvement.

Why Choose Us
We have helped with the evolution of agile environments at many different organisations. We know that there is no single way of working that suits every organisation. We listen to, and work with, all levels of the organisation. We train in many different ways of working and coach our clients to choose which one(s) they think will help them, and the rest of the organisation, improve. We coach and mentor clients to help set hypotheses for experiments and measures of success. Our aim is that the organisation learns to evolve, adapt and continuously improve independently and no longer needs external agile coaches.
