ICAgile Certified Agile Team Facilitator

The highly interactive ICAgile Certified Agile Team Facilitator (ICP-ATF) workshop provides you with the necessary skills to design online and in-the-room meetings & events for maximum impact. Whether you are in an Agile Coaching role or just in an Agile Environment, this course will prove invaluable.

You will come away with an overflowing toolkit and practical experiences that you can take back into the workplace and with your remote, in-person or hybrid teams. Leveraging your new knowledge and skills to facilitate agile practices toward successful team outcomes.

You will learn how to foster a feeling of safety so everyone feels heard using quick, effective, and engaging collaboration techniques whilst applying the Agile Mindset.

Attending this highly interactive workshop will give you the necessary skills to design and facilitate online and in-person meetings for self-organizing teams or groups of peers for maximum impact.

This training program is deeply experiential, equipping you with the key skills by immersing you in hands-on exercises to make sticky the theories behind the practice. We will apply the concept of ‘real play’, not ‘role play’.

The ICP-ATF course is one of two knowledge-based certifications on the ICAgile Agile Coaching track. The certification focuses primarily on the coaching mindset and the roles and responsibilities of an Agile Coach.

ICAgile Team Coach Certification

This course gives all of its attendees the knowledge required to become an effective, transformational agile team coach as well as a safe environment to put this new knowledge into practice.

After this course, you will have the flexibility at your fingertips to take professional individual and team coaching skills and use them in an agile coaching context. Not only this but we also pass on the knowledge and skills to successfully teach and mentor teams to help them increase their performance.

It’s no mean feat to enact value driven, humanistic, organisational change. Partnering with people so they feel real ownership creates a human-centred approach that benefits all stakeholders – employees, companies and clients.

With our ICAgile Certified Team Coach (ICP-ACC) training course, you can become that memorable person who makes a difference. 

Not only can you enable teams to be stronger together, and become great problem-solvers and robust tacticians, but you’ll bring the best out in both groups and individuals.

An agile coach does this not just by passing on information but by mentoring people to gain vital skills for their personal and professional success.

You can learn all about agile coaching during the ICAgile Certified Team Coach (ICP-ACC) training.

During the training, you’ll work with practical and transformational frameworks that support your evolving coaching journey.

Without a doubt, this course deep dives into real situations that empower you with constructive coaching theory and hands-on learning.

It’s good to know that two certifications are available on the ICAgile Agile Coaching pathway, the ICP-ACC and the ICP-ATF. The agile coach certification enables you to develop your coaching mindset and become an expert at all aspects of agile coaching.

Lean into insightful innovation mastery by acquiring key technical, developmental and strategic skills to guide individual, team and organisational evolution.

What Makes Our Courses Unique?

The ICAgile Certified Agile Team Facilitator (ICP-ATF) and ICAgile Team Coaching Certification (ICP-ACC) bundle equips participants with facilitation tools for designing effective meetings and workshops, and foundational coaching skills for developing teams, emphasizing systems thinking in team and organisational dynamics.

Meet Your Trainer

My journey towards becoming a Product Agility expert began with the standard Scrum Alliance courses based on the teachings of Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber. I worked as a team member in Scrum Teams and believed I had reached the end of my Scrum journey. However, when I attempted an Agile Project Management course, it turned out to be a forgettable learning experience.

Feeling disheartened by the agile world, I was recommended a book called “Scaling Agile and Lean Development” by Craig Larman and Bas Vodde, which helped me forget Agile Project Management and fully embrace Product Agility.

Since then, I have focused on experimenting with ways to balance an organisation’s desire for control, collaboration, and innovation to untap the true potential of Product Agility. This has involved educating, coaching, and leading organisational transformations to move from traditional technology organisations with broken supply and demand models to organisations that move beyond this ineffective model towards the intersection of Product Management and Agility – Product Agility. 

The growth of people to be effective in achieving organisational and personal goals is the critical catalyst for success. Coaching, training, and mentoring people at all levels of the organisation are key components of this approach.

As the host of the Product Agility Podcast, I get to learn from industry experts from both the worlds of Product and Agile. All of this learning I love to share all with my audience and factor it into every engagement, talk and article I write or contribute towards.

Upon successful completion of each course within the bundle, participants will receive two certifications: the ICAgile ICP-ATF and the ICAgile ICP-ACC.

Although not formally required, potential attendees are encouraged to have completed an agile foundation course—such as Scrum Foundations, Agile Fundamentals, Certified Scrum Master, or Professional Scrum Master—prior to enrolling.
