Facilitation is both an art and a science that can be learned the hard way, over years and decades of personal trial and error. Or can be fast-tracked through our targeted, practical Agile Facilitation course. The two days you spend in our Agile Facilitation class will jump start your capabilities as an effective facilitator. If you are a veteran team Facilitator, this class will give you additional tools and insight that will help you be an even more effective facilitator.
All Agile frameworks require a high level of interpersonal collaboration. Strong facilitation skills are mandatory for success with Agile, particularly for team leaders and Agile coaches. Facilitating virtual meetings has its own set of unique challenges. Fortunately, with the right tools and practices, digital facilitation can be as effective as in-person. In this course, you will both observe and practice effective virtual facilitation techniques. You will learn about and try readily available online tools that will increase participation and collaboration. Students complete NextUp’s Agile Team Facilitation course with a workbook of actionable facilitation ideas they can implement in their very next meeting.
