The Coaching Academy is for companies that want to improve the effectiveness of their own internal coaches, be they for SAFe®, Scrum or Kanban. Effective Lean-Agile transformation requires effective coaching. The Academy is designed to work either as a standalone program or as an integrated part of Net Objectives Lean-Agile Transformation. Training internal coaches enables maximizing the return on your investment in a Lean-Agile transformation and for continuing improvement afterwards.
The Net Objectives Coaching Academy is 13-week program designed to equip your coaches and change agents with the understanding, skills, and abilities they need to increase team performance and effectiveness within a Lean-Agile eco-system. The principles and Lean-Agile mindset benefit all Scrum or Kanban teams, regardless of whether they are using SAFe®.
Individual assessment, integrated coursework and mentorship, and a clearly defined learning path combine to ensure that participants’ needs are continually met throughout the 13-week program.
Class sizes of 12-15 provide participants with the personalized learning environment they need to be effective in their organization.
The coaching academy has tracks for coaches at the team and program levels and for organizations that want their product owners and development managers to work together better. All tracks follow the same philosophy and structure.
Each track in the Coaching Academy consists of:
While all tracks have the same structure each component of the track is tailored for that tracks specific needs.
This track is to take team coaches and make them better. We work with all Agile team level approaches (Scrum, Kanban, ...) and make them better. This track focuses not just on how the team can work better together but also how it fits into the overall flow.
This track is to take team coaches and convert them into coaches capable of coaching an entire program. Program coaches must know how teams need to coordinate with each other. The scope of this work focuses on the value stream from when the work is pulled by technology through deployment.
This track is for organizations that want to include the product owner in the coaching. This can be tailored for organizations with development managers or Technical Project Managers as well. This track puts more emphasis on how these roles can work together than individual coaching skills.
The curriculum of the academy is based on the Net Objectives approach to Lean-Agile Software Development for products and IT. The Net Objectives Portal provides the curriculum, an integrated Learning Management System, and a community of practice that can be made private to your organization.
