Remote Facilitation – This module covers top tips for facilitating various agile events remotely including Iteration Planning, Reviews and Retrospectives along with Daily Sync events. However, the main focus for the rest of the course will be on your facilitation of these events and getting valuable feedback from your peers.

Large Group Facilitation – After covering single team facilitation during this module, we will then explore how to facilitate multi-person/team Iteration Planning, Reviews and Retrospectives events. Once again with a focus on the practical application over theory.
