Coaching (Agile, Kanban & Lean)2023-11-24T12:55:25-07:00

Our coaching services are designed to assess your needs and provide a clear plan of action. We obviously track all of our coaching on a Kanban board that visualizes all of the coaching engagement’s key deliverables. Our customers are the ones who flow the coaching deliverables to the “Done” column based on clear acceptance criteria.

Start with scheduling an initial coaching call to let us know exactly what you are seeking to improve. This call will give you a great idea about what to expect.

“Kanban Zone Coaching made my productivity skyrocket”

Kanban Zone has helped me structure my thoughts in my day-to-day work, and has also helped me to organize my personal time. Over the course of a few weeks, I literally saw my productivity improve as I moved to Done. This not only helped me shape my ideas, but also was very satisfying at an emotional level as I dragged each card to the next stage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you only provide services online or also in person?2022-04-09T02:24:31-07:00

Our services can be delivered online or in person. We have found that the level & quality of engagement and participation is quite comparable. However, services that can be provided virtually are much more cost effective. It eliminates the time and cost of travel, which would be billed to customers, and increases the amount of time a coach is available to work directly with a customer. For example, when coaching virtually we can quickly schedule or join a session with little lead time. This permits us to be there when we are most needed, instead of just when we are physically there in person.

What is the cost of professional services?2022-04-09T02:24:52-07:00

Our rates are based on the type of services and the level of seniority of the assigned coach. Since professional services are customized for each customer, we provide the flexibility of working from a set of billable hours or a monthly retainer model. Once we confirm the ideal program for our customers, we provide a Statement of Work (SOW) and track all deliverables in Kanban Zone. For Kanban Zone enterprise customers (200+ licenses), professional services and software subscriptions can be combined in a custom plan.

Do you include free coaching with your Kanban Zone software?2022-04-09T02:25:06-07:00

Yes. The level of free coaching provided is determined by your software subscription. Also, our support team is always ready to help and can request a coach to work directly with our customers when needed. You may also submit a request to our support team to work with a coach.

Do you only provide professional services on your Kanban Zone software?2022-04-09T02:25:19-07:00

No. We always use our Kanban Zone software to track and deliver our services.  However, some customers may already have multiple tools in place and only  need us to coach and train them using their current platform. Although we strongly believe that Kanban Zone is the ideal software, we focus on the mutually agreed goals of the engagement. Switching to Kanban Zone may or may not be part of the solution. If not, then we ensure that the customer has the resources to implement what’s needed on their current platform and only use the Kanban Zone software to model the ideal solution.
