Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills

Live Virtual Class, September 12-13, 2024

Class Overview

This event takes place online

This live virtual PSF Skills class runs 12-13 September 2024, 13:30-17.00 BST.

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.


  • Introduction
  • Facilitation principles and Scrum
  • Applying facilitation skills and techniques
  • Improving facilitation skills
  • Closing


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.

For all of our live virtual classes, we use Zoom as our conference tool. Zoom is very secure. It uses end-to-end encryption and delegates can only access the conference via an admin controlled waiting room. Activities are carried out with Mural. No software is required to be pre-installed for these tools, though you may need to check that there are no security policies that block the use of these tools if you are joining us through a corporate network. We ask you to try to ensure a steady internet connection (for example by connecting through cable rather than with WiFi).

Certification and Assessment

All participants completing the Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills course will receive a password to attempt the Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills (PSF Skills) assessment. PSF Skills class participants who attempt the PSF Skills assessment within 14 days of receiving their free password and do not score the pass mark of at least 85% will be granted a 2nd attempt at no additional cost.
