Certified Enterprise Coaching provides you the assurance you need to know your in good hands.
Pete Behrens is the founder of the Scrum Alliance Certified Enterprise Coaching (CEC) Program – the most globally recognized program of experienced agile guides.
Our guides are proven experts with scaled agile experience working across the whole organization.
While Scrum is a “TEAM” sport, it takes agile leadership to enable the game to be played. Agile Leadership is more than understanding agile, it is a maturity level requiring experience and education. Less than 10% of leaders effectively “CATALYZE” agile high-performing teams. Our Leadership Agility Coaching provides awareness and education to bridge the gap.
LEADERSHIP AGILITY 360 (TM) COACHING
At Trail Ridge Consulting, we not only provide education and coaching for agile leadership, we are certified as a Leadership Agility 360 (TM) Coach. This 360 instrument provides a key self-reflection on mid-level and senior agile leaders to better understand how their thinking, decision making and behaviors effect organizational agility across four key dimensions
“Trail Ridge has not only enabled our agile transition for various global teams, but has also helped our leaders to foster self enabled teams and mature our approach to navigating change.”
– Lars Bruns, GE Global Research
The difference between “DOING” agile and “BEING” agile is whether or not the organization has the ability to adapt itself. “DOING” agile is a process and will likely fade as the tide. “BEING” agile will stick because that it becomes embedded in the DNA of the organization itself. Our organizational agility coaching provides the patterns for “BEING” agile.
DEEPER THAN PROCESS
While Agile and Scrum are easy to understand, they are difficult to implement because of the organization’s unique structures and cultures. Agility will most certainly come into conflict with traditional ways of working, roles and responsibilities, and cross-departmental boundaries. Our approach works with leadership to focus on these structural and cultural elements to enable agility and deliver value.
“Our engineers are particular about efficiency and low overhead – their practical approach is a perfect match for our culture.”
– Leigh Weaver, Google Corporate Engineering
PRAGMATIC COACHING: Our coaching is first and foremost pragmatic – that is we help you find balance between theory and practice to implement effective and efficient team structures and processes to optimize learning and value delivery.
CATALYST COACHING: At Trail Ridge Consulting, we believe that your organization must ultimately succeed on its own. That means that your people must be prepared to lead an agile organization. Our catalyst-style coaching starts this preparation from day one. We identify leaders within your organization and build your internal agile coaching competency through our engagement. This occurs at both a team and organizational level.
