Mission of Tech Coach Circle

  • To spread the value of hands-on technical know-how
  • To spread the value of hands-on Technical Agility
  • To provide a supportive environment to nurture hands-on technologists and technical agilists

Why is this mission important to us?

Problem Statement

Almost all of the Agile transformations stop at changing only management processes and organization structures. These things are valuable but, when stopped at this stage, it can lead to harmful effects in the short and long term.

For example,

  • Teams run sprints but don’t deliver shippable product every sprint.
  • Despite transformation being tagged as successful, the time it takes for any new change to go live is in the scale of several weeks, if not several months.
  • Focus on quality is almost non-existent, if not an after-thought. Focus is more about improving productivity/velocity and other vanity metrics.
  • Engineers, the people who do the actual work, are more micro-managed because they are not given support to learn how to actually deliver within 2 weeks. This leads them to look for opportunities elsewhere.

Effects of this problem

All of the above problems lead to worsening of the mental health of engineers, managers and often, leadership too.

How can we solve it?

  • We visualize a future world where creating value for customers can be done without affecting the mental health of employees.
  • We believe that focusing on Technical Agility is the way to achieve this vision.
