Facilitation – A Primary Scrum Skill
Once you get beyond the foundations of agility, where should you focus your learning next? Everyone has different needs but a common skill required by all agilists is facilitation.
The Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills™ course is an interactive course designed to help all agilists, not just Scrum Masters, to develop a facilitator’s mindset, proficiency in facilitation skills, and learn when and how to select effective techniques for various circumstances.
Most agile approaches put problem-solving and decision-making in the hands of the Team. However, team interactions don’t always go well. Sometimes team members lose sight of goals, don’t fully engage and/or can’t reach agreement. Effective facilitation can guide the team toward their desired outcomes.
In this one-day skills-building course, participants will learn how to become better facilitators to improve interactions with their Teams, stakeholders and customers. They will focus on how to adopt facilitation as a stance and address a series of common scenarios by applying several facilitation techniques that they can add to their collection of agile practices.
They will create and leave with their own facilitation “plan” to improve their next team discussion.
