About

A 16-hour ICAgile accredited course in Agile Team Facilitation

Whether you’re conducting a retro with a single Scrum team or engaging in a Value Stream Budgeting session with senior management: facilitating team sessions is essential for every Agile Coach. Facilitating delicate decision making, guiding the way towards collective action means playing simultaneous chess on several boards. Maintaining the flow of divergence and convergence in session; balancing group energy levels and dynamics versus individual sparks of inspiration; time management and tooling. ​

The 16 hour, ICAgile accredited course in Agile Team Facilitation will give you the awareness and the toolkit to lift any group event to the level of a kick-ass experience.​
