The ICP-ATF two-day course is one of two certified courses on the Agile Coaching track from ICAgile. It focuses primarily on the role and mindset of an agile team facilitator and group facilitation tools and techniques you can use to effectively design and facilitate meetings and workshops. It teaches you how to design such sessions for better collaboration and enable stronger focus on decisive outcomes.
Have you ever experienced any of the following scenarios?
- Participants checking out / disengaging
- Only one or two dominant voices being present in discussion
- Discussing the same topic over and over without establishing agreed-upon outcomes
- Not getting through the whole agenda
- Having extensive discussions for even the simplest of matters
- Blowing right through timeboxes (ending much later than anticipated)
If you have, and you’d like to make a difference that will put an end to such experiences, then equipping yourself with the necessary skills to create environments of high collaboration, passionate engagement, and where self-organization thrives is key!
Join us and develop a keen appreciation for what’s possible when strong and skillful facilitation is present.
Who should attend?
