In episode 39 of the ITSM Crowd, we were joined by special guests Kat Turner, Patricia Speltincx and Michelle Major-Goldsmith.

We were continuing a discussion that started on twitter via Martin Newman, talking about whether mentoring is possible in an Agile world of small, self-directing teams operating short feedback loops (you can see the start of it below).

We started with a definition of mentoring and coaching and then moved on to discuss how mentoring is becoming more important than ever. Even in an Agile environment, mentors can add an external perspective and can help to prevent teams becoming too inward looking.

You can watch the episode below, and if you’ve got any questions that you’d like to ask the panel members then contact us on twitter using #ITSMCrowd.
