Agile has been on the market for over 15 years. More and more individuals and organisations are entering into Agile transformations. Agile promotes aparadigm shift in collaboration & communication for organisations, teams and leadership. In this processes people make the difference.
Agilists have to learn and practice how to design and lead high quality sessions. This is where we get into a grey zone. Too often Agilists “facilitate” without understanding the skills and competencies needed for facilitation. Leading Agile transformations require specific facilitation competencies and the development of new models of collaborative leadership.
These competencies have been identified and described by IAF – the International Association of Facilitators. Arie van Bennekum, one of the authors of the Agile Manifesto and early adopter of the IAF-competencies for facilitation has integrated both areas, Agile and Facilitation, for over 2 decades and combined them into this course.
