We coach within teams and across large organizations. Our coach’s are pragmatic and outcome driven, helping people with product design, responsive engineering, validated learning and real and measurable agility.

Our product teams work with a producer as they build products for clients and DevJam. Instead of simply focusing on output, we strive to validate product, allowing us to continuosly make the best investment possible.

DevJammers are skilled in their craft and steeped in product thinking. They are ready to work across languages and platforms and they know how to start the discussions that give them the content they need to produce.

DevJam U courses are a combination of interactive material taught by compelling instructors. From programming to product design to agility, our small courses and the best of outcome based education.

Coaching Services

Organization coaches work within teams (projects), across teams (programs) and outside teams (portfolio). From product planing that spans teams, to cross team planning that addressing dependencies and constraints, to fostering learning within and across teams, organizational coaches help connect program communities to your product’s advantage. Organization coaches also help with with work that is often considered to be “outside the teams”, like working with marketing, executives and sales groups just to name a few.
Team coaches work with one or more teams. They sit with teams, creating story maps, building product road maps and helping teams learn from delivery. Team coaches know that pairing with people helps them learn quickly, but they may also choose to hold spontaneous workshops for one or more members of a team, and they are fully ready to teach a full course if needed. Team coaches will help and teach and then leave the team to learn on their own for a bit before returning to coach and teach some more.
Embedded coaches are DevJammers who are on one team, working side by side to design, deliver and validate product ideas. While they are on the team, and signed up to help produce, they are ready to help other team members learn skills like test driven, acceptance test writing, surfacing issues at stand up meetings, and creating a flow of product value delivered within and across iterations.
