What is the course like?

Are you a Scrum Master, Agile Coach or agile practitioner looking to improve your facilitation skills?

Much of the work on agile projects happens in group sessions: team members collaborate to identify and prioritise items, plan work to be done, elaborate stories, identify risks and issues, and communicate progress in stand-ups and other shared activities. Working in collaborative self-organising teams can be challenging and it is important that all team members understand the group dynamics involved and how to effectively facilitate these sessions.

That’s where our Agile Team Facilitation course comes in. Learn how collaborative workshops can be planned, organised and run; and how each team member can contribute to achieving maximum effectiveness - while identifying potential pitfalls and how to avoid and address them. This program will also help you learn about your role in building capability across the wider team.

Here's what our customers are saying:

I absolutely loved this course! I messaged my mentor right after we finished and said "I think we all need to take this training!" It was so incredibly helpful. This course would benefit anyone, not just people who are working in agile. The tools are sensational!

- Brittany N. Robinson, Accenture Federal Services

This is the benchmark for agile training - it has been expertly designed and delivered.

- Michael Loos, NBN Co

I really appreciate SoftEd's authentic commitment to developing agile practitioners. This isn't a certification treadmill. Our facilitator really understood the philosophical heart of agility and its inextricable relationship with the human condition.

- Thomas Banks

Highly recommend to anyone who is new to agile ways of working and wanting to add some tools to their toolkit for facilitation.

- Marta Osak, Standard Chartered Bank

Provided me some really amazing tools and situational guidance to take away and start implementing in my day to day meetings.

- Arthur Yu, NBN Co

Excellent course. The presenter (Brian) was down to earth, engaging and very effective. Course material was presented keeping practical application at the forefront and actively engaging all attendees through numerous activities. One of the best I've experienced.

- Louwrens De Vries, Commonwealth Bank of Australia

I have never attended a course that was so genuinely enjoyable and engaging. Brian is a fantastic storyteller, I was able to really connect with his anecdotes and tales of his experience relative to the course, and I feel like I have come away having learnt a lot, armed with new tools and frameworks to put into application with my teams right away.

- Gabriella Simonian, Concentrix Catalyst

Great engagement, and content was presented in a logic fashion that was easy to consume and digest. I was really impressed with how well the principles and activities within agile were backed up with research/books as well as real life experience. Dallas has been the best facilitator I have had over my 5+ years working within agile - and I will actively recommend her specifically to colleagues seeking to further develop their agile capabilities.

- Kieran Flynn, Commonwealth Bank of Australia
