I read this book as many Agile coaches have recommended this one. I had to read this nearly four to five times to better understand what it means.
Firstly, the title should probably read better Scrum Master and not Agile Coach. Secondly, the author seems to have picked ideas from some other books and tried to write catchy punch lines here ad there. In doing so, the author's writing never appeared original.
Thirdly, I had to read other books like Fierce conversations by Susan Scott and Co-active coaching to better understand this.
Lastly, the author has not touched many areas required for a successful coach like Scaling challenges, how to align HR, how to modify budgeting, and so on.
However, in the Agile world, this book has already become famous and many seem to follow it as a reference book. But I am still surprised about this trend four years after the purchase.
Ho acquistato questo libro perché mi interessava confrontarmi su tematiche di coaching Agile ad alti livelli. L'ho trovato tra le letture consigliate da Scrum.org: da qui la speranza che fosse un must del genere. In realtà, pur essendo un libro sicuramente valido, non mi sembra che mantenga un livello adeguato dall'inizio alla fine. A volte, sembrava che l'autore tenti di riempire i vuoti per incrementare il totale delle pagine, mentre in altri capitoli il flusso del pensiero è molto più fluido e il discorso fluisce in maniera molto più piacevole e costruttiva. E' questo strano mix di loquacità "riempi-spazi" e chiarezza che rende questo libro sia difficile da definire che difficile da raccomandare. Se avete il tempo e avete veramente a cuore l'argomento, vale la pena di leggerlo. Se si sta appena iniziando il percorso verso il coaching Agile, forse vale la pena aspettare ancora un po'.
This book is a must-have for every ScrumMaster, Agile Coach, and those who want to become one. Lyssa describes in depth the responsibilities and duties of a good Agile Coach, particularly providing a list of Failure Modes and Success Modes. She filled her book with lots of practical advices and activities gathered by her own experience and learned through working together with other well-known Agile Coaches.
Coaching agile teams is a good book. I didn't give it the five star rating, because it's a good book, but not the effervescent fantastic ever-revealing time-constraining informative guide as promised by the foreword people who have written their notes in the front. Although people like Mike Cohn are amongst them.
Becoming an agile coach is indeed not evident. And whereas I'm studying all the different agile methodologies/frameworks/philosophies and even Lean which isn't agile at all, you don't study how to coach on them. You study on coaching one of those methodologies, as I have become a certified DevOps coach, but still it is all about DevOps coaching and not about agile coaching.
This book helps you exactly about that. How to become a coach, how do you know that you are ripe to become a coach, what is it exactly to coach, that is important and you find that in this book.
As always with American books, the content could have been said as well in about a quarter of the pages, there is a lot of repetition.
Where it derails a bit, is where Lissa explains that she is a compelling control freak and how she wrestled with that. Interesting, but it goes on and on controlling yourself as a control freak, whereas I'm not a control freak, therefore not my problem. I might even a little bit too timid, but not a word on that.
Then there is the Shu-Ha-Ri. When it comes from Japan, it immediately seems to be very profound thinking and very wise. Then you need an explanation of the history of the word, the meaning of the word, the context of the history and how all of that applies to agile coaching. Interesting, but I'm getting tired of searching wisdom everywhere in the world, where we have very interesting thinking in our own culture. Shu-har-ri is of the extreme simplicity, and describes every learning process. Could have left out easily. We have also a word for it: assimilation.
On the other hand, this is really a book about agile coaching, and a good book. That the reader has some criticism is normal, it makes him think and establish his wisdom on a conscient basis. Voilà, Shu-Hi-Ra never the less.
Buy the book, and learn. It will make you a better agile coach.
This was a very difficult book to read; each sentence was chock-full of so much useful information I found myself instantly thinking how I could apply it to my work environment, only do find that my eyes had continued reading without any comprehension. I kept having to go back and read and re-read each sentence because it kept triggering this response.
I eventually finished the book and thoroughly loved Lyssa's philosophy of what an Agile coach should be and how to attain it. It won't be easy to get there, but this is a wonderful framework to use to get started.
This is an amazing book on agile coaching. I still need to come to terms with the fact to let the team be. It really advocates a decontrolled team environment. There are tools and several guidance given. The idea of creating a void so that the team can fill it is amazing.
