Join us for the 4-day interactive Agile Team Facilitation (ICP-ATF) and learn the role, mindset, and tools of an agile team facilitator.
The ICAgile certified Agile Team Facilitation (ICP-ATF) certification focuses primarily on the mindset and role of an agile team facilitator, while also providing group facilitation tools and techniques for effectively designing meetings and workshops that both engage the entire audience and drive towards agreed-upon outcomes. The path to this certification develops an appreciation for the art of facilitation as key to fostering collaboration and enabling self-organising teams. Participants will have an updated facilitator toolkit and practical experience leveraging these tools to facilitate specific agile practices towards successful team outcomes.
The 4-day experiential workshop enables participants to lead teams to higher levels of maturity & uplift their ability to plan and conduct effective team meetings to ensure the team is working collaboratively. In an Agile environment, the team depends on the facilitation skills of the Agile Team Facilitator to lead the team to higher levels of performance.
The Agile Team Facilitator role is broader than conducting meetings. The facilitator also guides the team through the paradigm shifts required in Agile team environments and lead them towards collaboration and self-organization. To do so requires a mindset shift for the team leader – the facilitator mindset.
The course gives you the much-needed skills to design and conduct collaborative meetings while leading teams toward higher maturity levels, more effective results, and self-organization. As a stepping-stone towards becoming an Agile Coach, this course focuses not only on skills and techniques but also on the mindset for the facilitator and the facilitator’s path towards becoming an Agile Coach. It includes group facilitation tools and techniques for effectively designing meetings and workshops that both engage the entire audience and drives toward agreed-upon outcomes.
