Agile coaching and advice

Making digital teams more effective through agile coaching, consulting and advice.

I provide coaching and direct advice on agile working for digital business to leaders and teams creating digital products (usually software). The companies I work with come from many fields as different as healthcare and surveying.

If you like what you read here drop me a note – contact@allankellyassociates.co.uk – I don’t bite and I’m always happy to discuss how I may help.

I have a track record of helping teams and managers improve delivery – meet deadlines, improve quality – and increase value delivered. Each case is different and some take longer to fix than others. Sometimes a few hours of agile advice can make a real difference, other times I give advice on agile over a period of months.

Agile coaching/advice sessions

Coaching can take on many forms but basically it means: working with individuals and teams to improve. One way of thinking about it is as a personalised training, the coach works with the individual or team over a period of time to help them learn and improve.

Coaching normally takes place in the work environment. This helps individuals to focus on the issues in hand and minimises the time they spend away from work.

Agile Coaching can help you think about your circumstances to find the solutions that work for you. Solutions that go well beyond the books.

How?

You can hire me for a little as a day! – Although a programme will normally entail multiple sessions spaced out over weeks. Some of these will be one-on-one sessions – typically with managers and executives- and some will be team based sessions. This approach allows individuals and organizations time to think and act on my agile advice and their own learnings.

Free initial agile advice session – on the phone of in person for those in the London area. Drop me a note and I’ll call you.

Agile advice sessions often follow Agile software training, or a Development Health Check. Other times we just start having agile advice sessions and see where we go.

Through my expert associates network I can in specialists with particular skills as needed. For example I commonly involve a technical coach to help and different technology stacks require different coaches. The right coach for a PHP team is probably not a C++ coach!
