Coaching large teams in large organisations is a tricky business. McKenna Consultants are experienced in aligning, empowering and improving teams in large organisations and departments through agile coaching.
The biggest challenge to agile adoption within a large organisation is alignment right from board level, through to the teams delivering the work. Our agile coaches a range of experience in a multitude of agile methods such as Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), Disciplined Agile Delivery (D.A.D), Rational Unified Process (R.U.P), Scrum, Kanban, and Lean to name a few. We can draw on elements from all of these to ensure that we provide your team and organisation with the best possible coaching. We are not bought in to one single methodology or framework as there is no “one size fits all”. We will work with you to find an approach that works best for you.
We have a holistic mindset when it comes to coaching. We are not there to simply instruct the team on what we think. Our mission is to help the teams to learn, evolve and ultimately find their own way to where they need to be. We do this through a range of coaching techniques, tools and tactics that we have developed through working with thousands of development team members and executives over the years.
Some of the coaching services that we offer large teams are:
- ScrumMaster Mentoring

- Senior Management Coaching

From experience we know that our most successful agile adoptions occur when coaching immediately follows the concepts learned through training. That being said, McKenna Consultants can still provide coaching to teams already trained and already doing agile.
