Our EPiC Facilitator training course is run for over 4 half-days (Virtual) / 2 days (In-Person). It is for anyone who needs to facilitate groups of people in workshops and meetings to drive towards agreed-upon outcomes. It specifically suits (but is not limited to) facilitators that work within an agile environment such as the role of Scrum Master or Agile Coach.
Participants will come away with ICP-ATF certification and a wide range of facilitation skills, practical tools and techniques to help design and deliver engaging, effective and outcome focused facilitated events.
Through obtaining the Agile Team Facilitator certification, participants will develop an appreciation for the art of facilitation as key to fostering collaboration and enabling self-organising teams. In addition, participants will build their facilitator toolkits and gain experience facilitating specific agile practices most relevant to their organisational context.
Lead your team to a higher level of performance and maturity.
