About a month back, I wrote an article called One Year as a Dojo Coach. I threw some shade at external Agile Coaches, aka consultants. It went like this:
“Traditionally, Agile transformations and trainings involve consultants...who come in to shake things up and throw out abstract concepts for people to nod at. The coaches do not feel the organization’s pain. The advice is not actionable. They speak from white papers that follow the happy path and not the real path.
