What Participants are Saying About this Course
love itAnna Kleynhans •
I bought this course after I read Lyssa's book on Coaching Agile Teams. Lyssa covers only key areas in these videos that I feel are very important from a team and agile coach development perspective. I would highly recommend that anyone doing this course reads Lyssa's book afterwards - there are lots more tips to learn and it provides more in depth knowledge!

A lot to learn from it!!!Adrian Sita •
This is one of the best courses about agile!
Excellent MaterialsDuane Edghill •
Great explanation of what an Agile Coach should be and the skills a good Agile Coach should have. Even for experience coaches you can still get new insights into problems you may see daily and how best to manage them.

Great CourseWilliam Jones •
I really enjoyed this coaching course. I look forward to completing her book, "Coaching Agile Teams". As I continue my journey as a coach.
Good basicsTrisha Atchison •
This course reveals some of the very basic concepts of meeting facilitation, conflict resolution and other entry level concepts.
More breadth than depthScott Lively •
The course covers a broad range of topics, but none of them are covered very deeply. I think it would have been better to condense the course by half and present a much smaller amount of material in more depth. The most value came out of sections 3 and 4. The workbook was helpful.
Fresh new contentMartin Lapointe •
This course was valuable for me. Being an Agile coach is about learning and getting better at what we do. Lyssa really focusses on giving up simple tricks easy to apply. I really enjoyed the last chapter about cooperation and collaboration, it was new knowledge to me.
Good intro course to Agile coaching.Gene Trussell •
Lyssa touched on some of the high points of her popular book Coaching Agile Teams but I don't feel the videos went into enough detail; to her admission in one of the videos, the course only covers about 30% of the book, which was disappointing. Not that the videos should be a replacement for the book but a course with the same name should cover more and use the book for reference points. I feel the course should be renamed to "An Introduction to Coaching Agile Teams". Some technical points about the structure of the course: The videos in each lesson should be combined; some of the videos are only 3-4 minutes long and seem to end abruptly which is very distracting and breaks the immersion of the lesson. The workbook. Why is the "companion workbook" not on Front Row Agile? Why does she have to repeat the URL of the workbook in every single video? Why is it missing the majority of the slides from the course? There are some great slides in the video that deserve to be in the workbook and it should be provided as Course Material directly on Front Row. Don't get me wrong, the course has some good discussion points and several self-introspection questions, which we all need to think about to be a good coach. But I think it's not as detailed as it could have been. Personally, I would pay more for a much more thorough online course that uses the book much more closely. Maybe rename this one an "Intro" course and follow up with an "Advanced" course?
