I often have students tell me that one of the key insights they have during my scrum certification classes is that they thought they were practicing scrum at their company, but no, they really are not. One student named it scrum-adjacent practices. I love that description! Scrum-adjacent practices: they sound like scrum on the surface – in general, scrum language is used; but behavior has not really changed.
In today's fast-paced business environment, collaboration is key to success. It enables teams to work together efficiently, leverage diverse expertise, and deliver value to customers. When everyone collaborates effectively, the entire team can align their efforts to deliver value to end-users. However, external distractions often prevent teams from reaching their full potential.
Love this newest iteration of the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel that Scrum Alliance is sharing! The wheel is based on the model for Agile coaching from Lyssa Adkins and Michael Spayd, adding new depth and definition to support and aid Agile coaches as they develop and improve. In the wheel, there are nine skill competency areas identified for an Agile coach. These are: self-mastery, agile/lean practitioner, serving, coaching, facilitating, guide learning, advising, leading and transforming.
