How is "facilitation" a surprising tool in an Agile transformation? Good facilitation wins the hearts and minds of the people. Without the people, you have no transformation. If you want to create a "pull", rather than a "push", then grab onto facilitation as your entry point. Vastly different groups of people within this Fortune 10 company, all had immediate boulders blocking their view to transformation. I decided to be a people's coach, rolling up my sleeves, working right there beside them, moving those immediate boulders. Once they could experience a different way of thinking through good facilitation, then they were more open to thinking differently about larger transformational topics. Forget about processes and scrum practices if their heads are full of other more immediate pain points. Help to push those boulders out of the way and you have cleared a path to transformation. Give energy towards facilitating fast outcomes to current gaps, and you've built a bridge. Facilitation was a quick win and quick wins make stronger bridges.
In this workshop you will see a very brief summary of how facilitation for transformation was used in several key areas in this Fortune 10 automotive company, then we’ll move into live facilitation of my favorite exercises/techniques. This way you will experience the magic yourself and be able to go back to your company and facilitate the same exercises. You’ll also leave with my facilitation guides for reference and opportunities to talk to me more about how you could use facilitation as a transformation tool.

Ben Linders said: "if you want to solve the problems that you are having, and deliver more value to your customers, you have to change the way you do your work. That is why agile promotes the usage of retrospectives: To help teams to solve problems and improve themselves!"
In this workshop I will walk you through the reasons, concepts, phases, tips and tricks of agile retrospectives and everything that happen behind the scenes. We'll share the space and learn together how to make this event a great one in a practical, engaging, fun and interactive manner.
