Collective Edge works in cooperation with a number of different organizations and individuals to provide a variety of services to fit the unique needs of each client, and because ‘pairing’ is the most effective way to coach. Current partnerships and associations include:
Jane Patterson and her partner Bill Abbate are behind Cornerstone, which focuses on developing and coaching teams, as well as leaders. Jane and I are at work on a campaign to bring the Team Diagnostic Assessment to the Pittsburgh area this Fall, as well as proposing team coaching engagements.
Cricketwing / Lyssa Adkins
Cricketwing is the inspiration of Lyssa Adkins, who is currently writing a book in the Mike Cohn signature series on Agile coaching. Lyssa and I have collaborated around several things, most prominently the Compleat Agile Manager course aimed at helping middle managers thrive and contribute in an Agile world.
CC Pace provides both out- and in-sourced Agile development, as well as Agile Coaching and Implementation services. Their Lean-Agile practice was one of the earliest in the industry to embrace Lean and large scale Agile adoption. We have partnered on several large-scale Agile clients, primarily in the Financial Services industry.
Bill Schneider and the Corporate Development Group are the originators of the CultureTek model, which is a typology for organization culture (Control, Competence, Collaboration and Cultivation). Bill and I have been collaborating since about 1997 on various projects, including applying his culture model to the Agile Enterprise.
