Coaching In Your Dojo – Third Day

August 21 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

dojo-starting and running your dojo



Faced with the challenges of multiple new technologies, processes, and ways of thinking, many organizations are embracing Dojos – immersive learning centers – as a great way of quickly upskilling their staff as well as creating a cultural and organizational transformation.

Coaching in the Dojo is different than normal agile or scrum coaching. In the Dojo, you are using some agile practices, but you are coaching for learning instead of delivery.

What Do You Need To Know To Coach Well In The Dojo?

If you are a coach in a Dojo and need to understand the practices and purposes needed to help teams learn, this course is for you.

NOTE – This course assumes familiarity with the Dojo. If you are not familiar with the Dojo, we recommend taking the 2-day workshop on bootstrapping your dojo for context.

This workshop will be hands on using various practices and simulations needed to help teams frame their learning in the Dojo. The workshop covers not only agile practices but also product and technical practices.

Learning Outcomes

  • Framing the learning for various teams and scenarios
  • Running various ceremonies
  • Models of growth progression and growth
  • How to identify and handle organizational friction that arises in the Dojo

Participants will leave this workshop with the knowledge and experience they need to start coaching a team in the Dojo in their organization. Like the Dojo itself, the workshop is an immersive learning experience combining presentations and interactive experiences covering all aspects of coaching in the Dojo.
