Agile Fluency Immersion

Experience best-fit Agile

WHEN 17-20 May, 2015 * 20-22 May Coaches' Masterclass
WHERE Rückersbach Seminar and Wellness Center

The Coach’s Masterclass

Two additional days of co-creation

We are working with coaches and facilitators who want to help teams reach their goals for Agile Software Development.  

The coaches' masterclass is your chance to create an intentional coaching community of leaders and practitioners who understand and use the Agile Fluency™ Model to help teams avoid the pitfalls that lead to what Martin Fowler calls “flaccid Agile”.

We’d love to spend two more days of practical, focused, goal-oriented time collaborating with a small group of coaches—limited to 10 passionate, experienced colleagues. We’ll dig into existing tools and co-create valuable and tangible support for using the Agile Fluency Model with teams.


We ask you to also join the three day immersion so you’ll experience using the model to find best-fit Agile. Diana and Steve will set aside an hour each day to work exclusively with the masterclass coaches to explore the Agile Fluency Model more deeply on the meta-level.


You’ll have the opportunity to become one of the first qualified administrators of the new Agile Fluency Team Benchmark instrument. (It’s SO new that we aren’t even sure of its official name yet.)

You are invited to join this group if you are passionate about helping teams reach their goals. The title on your business card doesn't have to say "coach".

What’s Happening

The agenda for these two days will be self-directed and open. You will set the agenda. We are prepared to join deep discussion around these topics (and more you create).

  • administering the Agile Fluency(tm) Model baseline instrument for evaluating team proficiencies and fluency  
  • working with the model vs. administering the instrument
  • developing and using coaching skills at each stage of Agile Fluency (“What do you need to be prepared to bring to a team?”)
  • using the model as a way of entering an engagement
  • dealing with common questions
  • presenting the model in ways that resonate with teams and leaders
  • expanding the current applications of the model
  • coaching people to think in terms of proficiency (progression/not binary) 
  • learning to create new fluency models
  • creating fluency models for use beyond software development
