Great Scrum Masters know that it takes more than understanding the rules of Scrum to help their teams achieve their true potential. They rely on a set of traits and skills to empower their teams.

Facilitation is probably the most important of those skills. Growing confidence in your facilitation skills will enable better problem-solving, more effective Scrum events and greater team alignment.

The Scrum.org Professional Scrum Facilitation Skills (PSFS) course is unique in that it is 100% focused on growing your skills. This is a 1-day Live Online class, where you will gain experience with nearly a dozen facilitation techniques. You will feel confident in actually putting these techniques to use, immediately upon return to your teams.

You could spend hours upon hours researching and reading about various facilitation techniques that you may have heard about… or you can spend one day with us and gain both the knowledge and real experience that you will need to succeed.

The PSFS class is highly interactive. We will use modern training and facilitation techniques to deliver a class that will result in actionable learning. And you won’t be forced to sit through multiple days of PowerPoint lectures.

You will not be bored, and I can promise you that you will not be able to multi-task during the class – so please plan accordingly.
