2Agile Team Facilitation

The Art of Facilitation is a unique skill for today’s project managers, Agilists, Scrum Master, and Agile coaches. Mature Scrum teams have the ability to plan and conduct meetings effectively and collaboratively. In a scrum environment, the performance of your team is directly proportional to the facilitation skills of a Scrum Master.

The role of a certified Agile Team Facilitator is beyond just conducting meetings. They guide the team in the change management and transformation process. The success of your agile project would depend on the team’s ability to self-organize and collaborate. To achieve this, the scrum master needs a complete shift in mindset from a team leader or project manager to that of a team facilitator.
