Benefits

Operating at the team facilitation step, agile coaches learn the core skills of facilitation and gain the self-leadership needed to use them well.

In this way, facilitation skills help the vision of agile-done-well come true. This step is important for coaches operating at any level of an organization or scope of influence, whether that is with one team, a group of teams, an executive team or a whole organization. Further, the skills learned at this step may also provide value for learners in other disciplines, such as product ownership, technical leadership, or delivery management.
