Agile Facilitation Course

8 sessions available starting from $990.00

Subject: Agile

Ages: All ages

Skill level: All difficulty levels

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

This course provides an experiential and theoretical understanding of how collaborative workshops can be run, and how each member can contribute to the team achieving maximum effectiveness, while identifying potential pitfalls (smells) and how to avoid/address them.

Intended For

Intended For

Anyone working on an Agile project.

Prerequisites

Participants need to have a basic understanding of the Agile practices and principles so they can participate in the workshops. For an introduction to Agile practices see our Taste of Agile course.

Learning Outcomes

This one-day workshop based course provides experiential learning for Agile project teams to work effectively together and how to participate in and run the collaborative work sessions.

Content

The course starts with a short session discussing the dynamics of collaboration in teams:

* understanding why collaborative workshops are an effective way of working together
* “t-shaped” skills
* working together in teams
* making and keeping commitments
* traps & pitfalls
* hidden agendas and teamicide
* facilitating workshops

The remainder of the day is spent participating in the different workshops based around a simulated Agile project:

* project kick-off/scoping workshops
* requirements workshops (story identification)
* release planning workshops (story prioritisation/planning poker/story estimation/velocity guessing)
* iteration planning workshops (selecting stories/task identification/”filling the bucket”/velocity * * estimation/push-pull work allocation)
* story elaboration workshops – getting to just enough detail/identifying acceptance criteria and test cases
* daily stand-ups
* iteration showcases
* retrospectives (iteration, release and project)

Exactly how many of the workshops will fit into a day will depend on the group, but we will cover the key ones; the intent is to have each participant lead at least one session in their group.

Method Used

This is a participative learning experience - the course starts with a brief theory introduction and the bulk of the day is spent applying the knowledge and learning by doing.
