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.
The ICP-ATF is one of two knowledge-based certifications on the Agile Coaching Track. It 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. Through obtaining this certification, course participants will develop an appreciation for the art of facilitation as key to fostering collaboration and enabling self-organizing teams. In addition, participants will build their facilitator toolkits and gain experience facilitating specific agile practices most relevant to their organizational context.
We offer four virtual sessions and each session is three hours long. The course is designed specifically for busy professionals who are all packed up in working hours. Our online live ICP-ATF program would be an enriching experience to ensure that you have a knowledge and understanding of the Agile Team Facilitator without sacrificing your office. You will be required to have approx. 20 hours of self-study for better understanding. There will be both individual assignments as well as group assignments for developing the facilitation plan. To get Certified, one must complete all assignments and attend live virtual sessions. Upon successful completion of the course, professionals will receive certification from the International Agile Consortium (ICAgile).
