Happy New Year! I hope you had a nice break. We are planning to hold meetup #4: The Agile Team Facilitation Stance: Taking your teams to the next level on January 27, 2013 at 6pm.
The Agile Team Facilitation Stance: Taking Your Teams to the Next Level
Collaboration is a core value in agile teams – most every agile practice requires some level of collaboration within or between teams. Over time team dysfunctions can emerge that reduce the team’s ability to collaborate effectively. Facilitation is a core skill for Agile Coaches - your teams need Facilitators who can facilitate agile practices, foster effective collaboration, support meaningful dialogues and enable team decision making.
In this interactive session we’ll explore the stance and skills of an Agile Team Facilitator and learn techniques for facilitating agile teams. Come prepared with your own experiences and questions - ready to share and learn from others.
