Product Coaching and Measurable Agility

Add to calendar

Beyond agile coaching lies the land of product coaching. Building on his years spent coaching lasting agility, David Hussman draws on the tools of the past, and introduces new ideas and practices. David starts with a short assessment of your skills and then puts them to work in an interview format where you work with another delegate to explore the least amount of process with the most real and measurable value. From there, David explains tools that foster product coaching while focusing on discovery, delivery, and measurable learning. Topics covered include: framing product teams and communities, coaching product discovery, coaching product delivery, fostering anti-fragile delivery environments, and focusing on impact over progress. If you are a working coach or are being asked to coach teams or programs, this session contains concrete tools you can apply immediately upon your return to work.
