Agile Team Facilitation – Soft Ed

September 7-9, 2022

Are you a ScrumMaster or Agile Coach looking to improve your facilitation skills? Much of the work on Agile projects happens in group sessions: team members collaborate to identify and prioritise stories, plan work to be done, elaborate stories, identify risks and issues, communicate progress in stand-ups and other shared activities. Working in collaborative self-organising teams can be challenging and it is important that all team members understand the group dynamics involved and how to effectively facilitate these sessions. That’s where our Agile Team Facilitation program comes in. Learn how collaborative workshops can be planned, organised and run; and how each team member can contribute to achieving maximum effectiveness – while identifying potential pitfalls and how to avoid and address them. This program will also help you learn about your role in building capability across the wider team.
As Agile matures within an organisation, quite often an Iteration Manager (sometimes called ScrumMaster) is the member of the team that takes on the facilitator role as they have a deep understanding of the Agile process, organisational dynamics as well as the ability to foster team dynamics and culture.

This ICAgile accredited course provides an in-depth understanding of how collaborative workshops can be planned, organised and run, and how each member can contribute to the team achieving maximum effectiveness, while identifying potential pitfalls (smells) and how to avoid/address them. The course also assists Iteration Managers in addressing aspects of their role to build capability across the team.
