Manage   »   Coaching   »   Inexperienced Teams

When you coach inexperienced teams you take on a commanding senior role: you instruct and guide the team towards its agile objectives.

You are seeking to educate, train and to teach the processes and philosophy. You are the leader, you lead by instruction and example and you are seeking to maintain maximum effectiveness and success of the team. The team will look to you for answers and for you to be the final arbiter. You are also aiming to sell and promote the benefits of the process to the wider team. If you are working with a team that is new to agile you will probably take on an instructional style.

When you guide you are seeking to apply less of a leadership management style and operate as an embedded part of the team. You seek the views of the team members and to engage in discussions to debate and uncover the best way forward. You look to build the capability of individual team members and help them to successfully allocate deliverables. You work directly with team members to build their confidence in their ability to deliver and to build their confidence in your ability to help them. You seek to channel and steer the team to the right solution. Your objective is to make sure the whole team works together amicably and symbiotically. If you are working with a team that has delivered agile projects before, maybe with different levels of success, you will probably take on a guidance style of coaching.
