Lyssa's Latest BookVery little in their education or experience properly prepares a ScrumMaster or Project Manager for the role of Agile Coach.  This leaves most wondering, “What is my role in a self-organized team?  How do I help the team yet stay hands-off?”  Many respond by going too far to either extreme.  Coaching Agile Teams turns these questions into answers, and answers into action by offering practical ways to adapt skills from professional coaching and other disciplines to coaching agile teams toward high performance.
