Xtreme Programming and Agile Coaching
Tuesday, 28 October
This panel brings together coaches to discuss all aspects of the practice: how to become a coach,
choosing a coach, and describing what is to be an (in) effective coach. A coach watches, provides
feedback, and suggests subtle direction. The coach may be more—for example—an architect
or team lead—but that is a matter for debate. This session will be run as a panel with two open
"fish bowl" seats, only one of which may be occupied by audience members at any one time. The
panelists will defend their positions and offer feedback. Panelists were asked to offer their observations
on three questions: How did YOU become a coach? What's the toughest thing you've had to do as a coach?
What's your advice for teams looking for a coach?
