Transform your Meetings from Pointless to Productive

“Meetings are pointless” … “We have too many meetings” … “Meetings get in the way of real work!”

 

Sound familiar?

 

These were common responses to a survey about meetings given to teams, Scrum Masters and Agile coaches. The quotes are symptoms of a typical problem that teams can easily fall into; going through the motions of a meeting or Scrum event without feeling the true value. However, there is a cure – facilitation. Development of this core Scrum Master skill is a guaranteed way to solve the problem.

Facilitation is at the heart of everything that AWA does. For years we have facilitated other thought leaders and trainers both in London and across the globe. We think the topic of facilitation, and particularly large-scale facilitation, is going to increasingly benefit both Agile coaches and organizations in the near future. With that in mind, we are pleased to present this exclusive preview of Philiy Lander’s session “Transform Your Meetings from Pointless to Productive before her debut at this year’s Scrum Gathering in London.

The preview has been crafted into the ultimate interactive workshop, using data from our survey and Philiy’s own expertise, to help hone your facilitation skill and solve the biggest meeting problems facing teams today.

 

Come along to this session on September 23rd and learn how to support your teams to do their best thinking – never have a pointless meeting again!

 

By attending you will:

  • Be able to articulate what facilitation is and its benefits
  • Know what the most common meeting complaints and how to solve them
  • Visualize stages of a decision-making meeting and get hands-on experience using techniques to help teams move through each stage
  • Leave with practical tips, tools, and knowledge you can use to help your teams when you are back in the office.
