Many agile transformations start life at the top with executive leadership buy-in and then creation of training timelines to move changes down and across the org. In this case study, we'll share a different approach taken by two coaches who, with initial blessing from leadership, decided to work with five line level teams just where they were, and to help them chart their own path towards scaling agile. Over the course of one full work week, instead of running through a prescribed set of training decks, the coaches offered up a buffet of agile and scaled agile resources for the teams to sample and discuss. This approach required just-in-time coach collaboration and improvisation, with nightly pivots and adjustments to the focus for the following day. The only plans fixed upfront were a kickoff session with leadership, and a scheduled playback session for Friday afternoon where the teams would share their learnings with upper leadership and then make their case for the scaled agile approach they wanted for themselves.
