Our Agile Coaches do it all (and then some)
When they’re coaching, our Agile Coaches work directly with your teams to observe and assess, recommend improvements and refinements, and help them consistently deliver a quality product. Mentoring services draw from our vast experience in Agile development to help team members learn specific practices by working collaboratively.
