Any large-scale agile transformation cannot be realized without enabling people to practice and scale their engineering practices. Technical Coaches’ role becomes crucial when we are dealing with large number of teams. But the question often asked is what exactly should we expect from those Technical Coaches.
In this talk, Jayaprakash Puttaswamy (JP) would be sharing his evolutionary experience of playing the role of a Technical Coach in large-scale agile transformation initiatives. Apart from sharing, he would trigger an inquiry for agile coaches on “What it takes to be a Technical Coach?”.
Key aspects that would be covered include difference between technical consulting and coaching, expectations from a technical coach and managing those expectations.
Key takeaways for the participants:
1. Clarity on the role of a “Technical Coach” in large-scale transformation
2. An understanding on expectations from a technical coach and how to manage them
