 Description of Project

  • Seeking an agile coach with extensive Scrum, Kanban, and Scrum@Scale framework experience (adherence to the Scrum and Scrum@Scale guides is required), in addition to experience with both Agile planning and Agile Project Management. The expectation is for the consultant to attend team and leadership meetings, Scrum events of the teams, provide an assessment of our teams and organization, deliver a coaching plan for our Infrastructure group, deliver a plan for Scrum@Scale implementation, lead some Scrum@Scale events, and provide 1:1 coaching and mentoring at all levels of the organization. The coach will work closely with our internal managers that have been providing coaching as well.
  • As part of a larger organizational shift, BCA has implemented the Scrum framework within the majority of our application development teams. Our Infrastructure teams (consisting of seven) are currently using Kanban boards to manage their work, however further consulting is needed to determine if the Scrum framework could be used within some of the teams and to help implement best practices within the teams that will remain Kanban, such as determining WIP limits and predicting team throughput.
  • As an extension to the Scrum framework, we have decided to implement the Scrum@Scale framework within our organization to align enterprise prioritization, planning and delivery with that of our teams. Consulting at this level is needed to advise and guide us throughout the implementation of Scrum@Scale, identify roles to support the framework, and coach/mentor senior leadership and other leaders within our organization on “why” we want to use this methodology and “how” it is going to work.

Sample Tasks

  • Provide coaching and support in agile methodology (specifically Scrum)
  • Attend 6-8 team meetings each week including Scrum events
  • Provide 1:1 coaching
  • Provide coaching to teams
  • Work with managers to further the Agile Maturity Initiative
  • All coaching must adhere to the Scrum Guide
  • Provide knowledge transfer

Minimum Qualifications

  • Five years of experience coaching IT organizations to implement the Agile Scrum framework and Kanban
  • Three years of experience leading organizations through successful implementation of a Scaled Agile Framework

Desired Skills

  • Experience as an Agile Coach
  • Experience using Scrum@Scale framework
  • Experience as a Scrum Master
  • Experience coaching new and existing Kanban teams
  • Agile Project Management experience
  • Agile planning experience at the Portfolio level and all Agile roles
  • Forecasting future portfolio work from a Scrum and Kanban perspective
  • Experience establishing and working with both portfolio level work and product
  • backlogs
  • Experience working with Scrum and Kanban teams supporting Criminal Justice Systems
