Further learning after Agile Facilitation (ICP-ATF)

About Agile Coaching

If you need a reminder on the Agile Coaching Competency Framework, have a look at the video.


Further learning on facilitation


  • ICAgile’s website has the overview of every accredited provider in the world when it comes to ICAgile-trainings.
  • Liberating Structures has become very popular as a set of patterns you can use to design meetings. There is a website,  a book, training, and an app.


Jimmy Janlen’s book ‘Toolbox for the Agile Coach – Visualization Examples ‘is a special one, focussing on visual facilitation only.

The Fearless Organisation‘ by Amy Edmonson is a good introductory work on psychological safety. (It makes for a great gift in case you are looking for a subtle way of influencing/teaching someone about this topic…)


The ‘Period Table of Meetings’ can be found here.

The model for Dysfunctional behaviour originated from this article.

How to get better at Retrospectives


  • When it comes to facilitating Retrospectives, Agile Retrospectives is a still a classic.
  • As an alternative, I think that The Retrospective Handbook available at  Leanpub is just as valuable, albeit not so famous.
