Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills
Live Virtual Class, February 28, 2023
People do incredible things when they are empowered to apply their talents with dignity.
👆This is a super power that Professional Scrum Masters unlock with their teams, everyday👆
Great Scrum Masters know that it takes much more than simply understanding the rules of Scrum. They rely on a set of traits and skills to empower their teams.
Facilitation is probably the most important of those skills. Growing confidence in your facilitation skills will enable better problem-solving, more effective Scrum events and greater team alignment.
The scrum.org Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills (PSFS) course is unique in that it is 100% focused on growing your skills. You will gain experience with nearly a dozen facilitation techniques, and feel confident in actually putting them to use immediately upon return to your teams.
The PSFS class is highly interactive and we use little to no PowerPoint. We will use modern training and facilitation techniques to deliver a class that will result in actionable learning. You will not be bored, and I can promise you that you will not be able to multi-task during the class, so please plan accordingly.
