Technical Coaching

When you grow people’s skills while accomplishing real work, winning becomes inevitable.

Our technical coaches (also called player coaches) are skilled professionals with outstanding coaching and delivery skills. They join your team to help streamline how you plan, test, design, code, review, integrate, and release software.

"We couldn’t be more pleased with Industrial Logic’s player coaches. They’re transforming the way we work at Ford while helping us deliver business value through production code." Michael Ulczynski, Manager, Ford Motor Company
John Handy, Manager, Ford Labs

With our coaches at their sides, your team will master:

  • Continuous integration
  • Continuous deployment
  • Legacy code management
  • Evolutionary design
  • Test-driven development
  • Release early and often

"Industrial Logic's player coaches did an outstanding job at McKesson. Their expertise and encouragement led our people not just to accept but actually to love valuable practices like pairing and Test-Driven Development that have made a huge difference for us." Hank Head, Sr. Director, Clinical Decision Support, McKesson Corporation

How It Works

Industrial Logic’s coaches work on your team’s current code base and deliverables, improving both the code and the team’s ability to manage their work. As full members of the team, they work with everyone to develop a rapport that enhances communication and collaboration.

Compared to a traditional coach, an Industrial Logic coach has insight into a wider range of challenges, including tool usage, organizational constraints, environmental issues, customer feedback limitations, and other hurdles.

This deeper understanding of the team’s context helps the coach maintain a pragmatic approach. Because it is specific to the project’s code base, all instruction received from our coaches is relevant and instantly applied, with the code usefully exemplifying how similar problems are solved. By reducing code smells and simplifying code, our coaches make it progressively easier for the team to implement design changes.

Measuring Success

Success will be gauged via observation of:

  • Lowered defect rates
  • Reliable deliveries
  • Continuous improvement
  • Increased learning and experimentation
  • Improved technical practices
  • Improved alignment with stakeholders
  • Greater psychological safety within the team
  • Increased collaboration among team members
