Important: as of August 2023, we will no longer be offering this training in lieu of other training available in development. The articles and Q&A will remain on the Community platform, but the certification for facilitating debriefing Plays in this iteration will be discontinued. Thank you for your interest and please continue to develop those facilitating skills!
We’re testing a new certification to help individuals learn how to facilitate Plays from the Atlassian Team Playbook. Read on to discover how you can take part!
Plays* on the Atlassian Team Playbook are free workshop resources for addressing common team challenges and starting important conversations.
However, as a former product owner of Team Playbook and facilitator of many Plays for other teams, I know that a good facilitator can make or break the energy during a session. In fact, I’ve spoken to many teams who don’t run Plays because they can’t find an experienced facilitator.
Welp, that excuse ends now. Because we believe everyone who wants to improve their Play facilitation skills should be able to, we’re inviting an inaugural group of individuals to go through “Play facilitation training” to earn their Facilitation Certification.
*Side note: want to dive deeper into Playbook? Then check out our library of Plays. Find instructions for popular exercises such as retrospective, DACI, Roles and responsibilities, OKRs, and more.
1. Consumption of these articles.
2. Based on the reading material, score at least 90% on a short quiz.

(Note: you will need to provide proof of facilitation by recording your session, writing an article about it, or facilitating a team we provide you).
5. An article posted in the Teamwork Lab with a reflection on these experiences and lessons learned.
If so, your journey begins by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you complete your training, you’ll get a document as proof of certification as well as an exclusive badge for your profile!
