About this Event

The Online Agile Team Facilitation Certification training (ICP-ATF) is a highly interactive and deeply experiential 14-hour program that focuses on the mindset, roles and responsibilities of an agile team facilitator. This course is taught using techniques from “Training from the Back of the Room” and “Liberating structures”, among others. The variety of activities and feedback sessions will help you acquire essential agile team facilitation mindset, skills such as maintaining neutrality, facilitator stances and anti-patterns, different facilitation techniques, active listening, powerful questioning and facilitation tools for small or large groups. A lot of attention is given to the exchange of experiences and, above all, to the skills required to becoming an exceptional facilitator in the Agile environment.

We have built this course around the steps involved in facilitating a meeting: Before, During and After so you will have a broad perspective of your role as facilitator and your responsibilities for ensuring the meeting meets the outcomes and purposes as defined.

Participants will take away group facilitation tools and techniques to design effective meetings and workshops that engage the entire audience and drive towards agreed-upon outcomes. Participants will develop their facilitation skills and capability to foster collaboration and enable self-organizing teams. They will gain practical experience facilitating specific agile practices. Experience activities, games and discussions that will focus on:

  • The Scrum Master Agile Team Facilitator
  • Mindset, skills, and tools for facilitation
  • Creating a collaborative space.
  • Effective facilitation of agile meetings
  • Facilitating problem solving
  • Facilitating decision making
  • Facilitating collaboration
  • Facilitating team maturity
