Important Course Information
Exam Entry CriteriaMuch of the work on Agile projects happens in group sessions: team members collaborate to identify and prioritize stories, plan work to be done, elaborate stories, identify risks and issues, communicate progress in stand-ups and other shared activities. Working in collaborative self-organizing 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 Facilitation and Iteration Management program comes in. Learn how collaborative workshops can be planned, organized and run; and how each team member can contribute to achieving maximum effectiveness - while identifying potential pitfalls and how to avoid and address these. This course will also assist you in addressing aspects of your role to build capability across the wider team.
