Industrial Logic’s player 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, a player 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 player coach maintain a pragmatic approach. Because it is specific to the project’s code base, all instruction received from a player coach is relevant and instantly applied, with the code usefully exemplifying how similar problems are solved. By reducing code smells and simplifying code, player coaching makes it progressively easier for the team to implement design changes.
