We can no longer afford to work independently of each other. In order for teams to deliver great outcomes we need to collaborate. Agile encourages collaboration via many different workshops. But, running these workshops can be hard. In order to ensure we don’t waste time, we need a strong facilitator.

Today, I want to share with you some of the tips and techniques that I have learnt over the years when it comes to running great collaborative workshops. We will go through some of the key Agile workshops: Project Inceptions, Story Card Workshops, Story Kick-offs, Retrospectives and more. You too can learn the art to facilitating great collaborative workshops.
