This week The Marketing Agility Podcast features a conversation with Staci Dubovik and David Grabel who are the lead Agile coaches at Vistaprint. We were very excited for this conversation because it presented a rare opportunity to speak with two Agile leaders whose exclusive focus is to scale Agile and to drive practice improvement.
Few companies have this level of executive buy-in, dedicated Agile coaches, and a real track record under their belts. In this conversation we take on:
- How—and when—to leverage an external coaches to support adoption and scale
- How simultaneous top-down and bottom-up coaching accelerates Agile adoption
- How the role of the coach changes with implementation teams and executives
- How long it really takes to get a team to a high-level of Agile capability
And there’s a lot more here, we could have kept talking for another hour or two!
Bonus: Here’s a slideshare with VistaPrint’s interpretation of the Agile Marketing Manifesto.
