Training Program

Putting problem solving and decision making in the hands of the Scrum Team is a core principle of Scrum. The Scrum framework creates places for this to happen, and the Scrum values help to create an environment in which the voice of each Scrum team member can be heard. However, getting the Team to work together doesn't always work out. Sometimes team members get distracted, don't get fully involved and/or can't agree. Effective facilitation can be the guide to the team's desired results.

Module 1 - Facilitation Principles and Scrum
Module 2 - Using facilitation skills and techniques
Module 3 - Improving Facilitation Skills

Be ready to challenge and be challenged! You will work in teams and learn through team assignments, discussions and hands-on exercises. 

The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills (PSFS) certification exam.

Target Audience

Any industry where teams work to solve complex problems will benefit from the Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills course. It is particularly useful for Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Managers and Scrum Team Members within an organisation who want to learn how to use facilitation to improve the success of their team.

It is important that all Scrum Team members, including the Scrum Master and Product Owner, understand how to facilitate and have a set of techniques and practices at their disposal to support the team and its stakeholders, as collaboration is a key factor in the success of any initiative and each individual can step in when needed.
