When you invite guests to your house (maybe for dinner), what do you usually do? [Covid, I know – stay with me for a minute] Do you pick “untidy” things up and put them away? Vacuum or sweep the floors? Get some flowers for the table?
When you hire an agile coach or scrum master, what would be the equivalent preparation?
Continuing that metaphor – if you are the one invited and you find the house a bit messy, and your hosts ask for a bit of help tidying up, do you walk around looking and pointing out what needs to be done, or do you help pick things up and ask where they would best go?
Might the difference be that between a consultant and a coach?
