Many Agile coaches complain about management’s lack of wanting to truly understand Agile.

Many in the Agile community criticize a company’s leadership for not understanding Agile.

The order in which you present new concepts is important. People can only learn what they already almost know. Yet very often what they need to know is like the stick buried underneath a pile of things they don’t know. But at the top, is something they already almost know. The metaphor of how you take sticks from a pile can be used to determine the order in which you convey concepts to people.

Experts do not always have more experience or intelligence than those who are less competent. I suggest the biggest difference is what they look at and what they ignore. These “distinctions” provide them with insights on how to solve problems.

A professional Lean-Agile coach is a person who understands how to help teams and organizations improve with the theories of Flow, Lean, and the Theory of Constraints while also understanding the basics of human learning and interaction. Coaches need to play an active role in helping teams improve. ‘Active,’ doesn’t mean they tell people what to do, which is not effective. This is not because people may resist when told to do somet...
