    • Solution Focused Approach to Agile Coaching Pierluigi Pugliese - Connexxo
    • Imagine...
    • Solution Focused: Asking Questions - Steve De Shazer, Insoo Kim Berg et al. - “All of the Facts belong only to the Problem, not to its Solution” Asking for Solutions is more efficient than digging in Problem analysis
    • 1 2. Experience How? the difference 3. Find path to solution, backwards The Goal The Client Problem 1. Move to the solution State
    • The Problem
    • The Solution State
    • Where in Agile? Team Coaching 1-to-1 Coaching Daily Meetings Sprint Product Increment Demonstration Product Sprint and Backlog Backlog Retrospective It’s an attitude when asking questions!
    • Coaching Solution Focused - Define the goal - Elicit options and - Ask, don’t suggest resources - Don’t judge - Focus on possible solutions - Wait as much as needed!
    • Systemic - What would be different? Questions - What resources did you use? Suppose you - How would you recognise it? have achieved - How would other your goal... people recognise it?
    • Systemic Questions Find the difference that makes the difference and ask about it!
    • What else? And what else?
    • Circular Questions - How would P do it? - How would P notice it? - What would P say?
    • Why not why? - Use the question “why” sparingly! - Elicits values - Promotes problem analysis - Rationalises the irrational - Stabilises the status quo
    • Your turn... - Client wants to solve a problem - Coach asks Systemic questions - Observers are timekeepers and provide feedback - When problem solved or time expired: give feedback - Exchange roles, repeat
    • Scales 10 Goal Steps to Solution 5 Now Past Resources 1
    • Miracles - Imagine... a totally normal evening - Sleep normally - A miracle happens and the problem you had is gone - But you don’t know that, because you were sleeping - You wake up in the morning: how would you recognise the problem is gone? How would the others react?
    • Interviews - I [the coach] am a journalist of the [newspaper, magazine, TV, radio, internet news...] - I’m here to interview you [the Client] because you have solved brilliantly the problem X - All our listeners/viewers/readers/... want to know how you did it - What was the last step to it? - What was the step before the last? - What was different since you achieved your goal?
    • Your turn... - Client wants to solve a problem - Coach asks Scales and Systemic questions - Observers are timekeepers and provide feedback - When problem solved or time expired: give feedback - Exchange roles, repeat
    • Imagine... - Back to the office, you have used successfully these techniques - What did you do differently? - Where did you apply them? - How did your colleagues notice you are now mastering these techniques?
