Agile Coaching

It's been some time since my first abortive attempt at keeping a blog. I've since left the company where I was working, and have hung out my shingle as an independent Agile coach. I'm doing much the same work as my major thrust when I was an internal employee: transforming an organization into one that delivers reliably and without drama.

Coaching is fun. It's great to watch a group of developers really get something for the first time. We had iteration planning today, and I put up a Scrum board in our work area right after the meeting. Within minutes, developers had started to gather around it, and just automatically started to update it to reflect what they were doing.
