Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills (PSFS) is an interactive one-day course designed to help teams and individuals develop proficiency in facilitation skills, so that they can help teams better solve problems, build consensus, and foster transparency. Great Scrum Teams are self-managing, cross-functional and have the ability and skills necessary to drive to successful outcomes. But team interactions don’t always go as expected and cause conflict or roadblocks. Effective facilitation can help teams move forward toward their desired outcomes. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills certification exam (PSFS).
Participants will learn how to become better facilitators to create better interactions with their Scrum Teams, stakeholders and customers. They will learn how to adopt facilitation as a stance and enable the Scrum Values. Students will have the opportunity to address a series of common Scrum-related scenarios by applying several facilitation techniques that they can add to their collection of agile practices. They will create and leave with their own facilitation “plan” to improve their next team discussion or Sprint event.
