Agile Team Facilitation (ICP – ATF)

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. ​

Unlike the Professional Scrum Master (PSM) course which focuses on how to use Scrum, the Scrum framework and the role of the Scrum Master, PSM II is an advanced course which helps students to understand the stances that characterize an effective Scrum Master and servant-leader. The class dives deep into how Scrum Masters serve the Scrum Team, Product Owner, and the organization.

Students will learn about areas critical to growing as a successful Scrum Master such as how the principles and values of Scrum help guide Scrum Masters in the decisions they make and how the Scrum Master can help change the environment of Scrum Teams, creating the conditions for agility to thrive. Students will also explore related practices and skills which will enable them to have the right types of conversations and how to apply them to become better Scrum Masters.

Throughout the class, your PST will provide stories, exercises, facilitation techniques (such as “Liberating Structures”), resources, and more.

The training was very informative and provided many new tips, tools, ideas and techniques that are new to me. Exactly what I expected. I was impressed by the Session Template we learned to use during the Designing Sessions. Boris is the right trainer for this online version of ICP-ATF. Very alert, energizing, and a real expert on the topic.
