This 1 Day course is a highly practical course and agile scenario based exercises will be used throughout to allow delegates to self-assess their current skills and share their experience with the group. During the course delegates will analyse the essential characteristics of effective facilitation in the agile / scrum environment – what to do and what not to do, how to best use their communication skills to manage conference calls, how to get more people to contribute to ideas and how to keep all attendees focused on the required outcomes.

DCM can develop customised solutions or deliver off-the-shelf courses in-house for your team. This approach makes perfect sense for groups of 4+ delegates, enhancing cost effectiveness as well as team bonding.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
