Course description

Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills (PSF Skills)

Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills (PSF Skills) 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 (PSF Skills).

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.


This course is appropriate for experienced Scrum professionals who want to learn how to use
facilitation to enhance team collaboration and reduce conflict. It is ideal for:

  • All Scrum Team members (Scrum Masters, Developers and Product Owners)
  • Scrum and Agile Coaches and Consultants

This course is not suitable for professionals with little Scrum knowledge or experience.

I loved this course as it was interactive and informative. I walked away feeling like I had gained a world of knowledge that I could use practically day to day.

– Nicole Grobler, Business Analyst

Amazing training experience!
In a very short timebox, Glaudia and David were able to engage a very dynamic class with real life examples and tales from their experience. We’ve learned powerful techniques and also practiced some of them. It was one of the best classes that I’ve participated in.

– Ciprian Banica, Agile Coach

Had a fantastic time with David and Glaudia. Learned a lot that I have already put into practice.
