Agile Team Facilitation
In this course you will learn how to design and practice facilitating sessions for different levels of team maturity. 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.
