About this Event

Overview of The Agile Team Facilitator (ICP-ATF)

The Certified Agile Team Facilitator by Touch Think will help you develop the attitudes and learn the skills of an effective Agile facilitator.  You will learn and practice techniques and behaviours from the world of professional facilitation and creative problem solving, in the context of typical Agile-related meetings such as Standup Meetings, Planning Meetings, Retrospectives, and Design Thinking workshops. Participants will leave the course feeling empowered with skills, models and styles of facilitating in an Agile environment.

Course Content

In this course you will learn about:

The Agile Team Facilitator Role and Mindset

Agile Team Facilitators facilitate Agile practices, foster collaboration amongst team members, and generally support teams. Here we introduce you to the attitudes and behaviours that make a good (even great) facilitator.  You will have the chance to reflect on your own personality characteristics and when certain characteristics are useful (or not).

Development Path for Agile Coaching

Additional skills are required as one advances along the Agile Coaching development path. These include not only facilitation skills but also professional coaching, mentoring, teaching, and consulting skills. In this part of the course, you will learn when to seek the help of more advanced Agile Coaches.

Designing and Setting Up Meetings

A lot of the work around facilitation is thinking work in advance of a meeting. In this part of the course, you will encounter tools and techniques for use before, during, and after meetings.

Facilitating a Meeting

As this training is particularly experiential, you will have the opportunity to facilitate parts of meetings and to receive feedback from peers, using the facilitation tools and skills learned.

Facilitating Collaboration

Maintaining awareness of our own style of working, and of other styles, allows us to facilitate more meaningful and inclusive intra-team dialogues. Here you will learn about your own working styles, and consider what changes you might want to make to your working style profile.

Facilitating the Agile Practices

In this part of the course, you will be presented with approaches to facilitating such practices such as standup meetings, planning meetings, retrospectives, and design sprints. You will experience witnessing and facilitating these activities.

Skillful Facilitation Techniques

This part of the course offers approaches for working with different stages of team maturity and team development, and working with team dysfunctions.
