Understanding the many forces that affect the teams we work with represents a challenge for us as Scrum Masters. We need to learn about different parts of the organization, that we may never have worked with. We need to learn about the impact of the technical environment, which we may not be experts on. And the list goes on. Peter shares with us the power of visualization as a key tool to help understand the environment around the team. In this episode we mention one book recently published by Oikosofy about visual tools that help us understand the system. Head over to Actionable Agile Tools to learn more.
About Peter Gfader
Peter hates shitty software and tries his best to improve the profession of software development. For this reason, he joined scrum.org. The seek for improvement keeps him getting out of bed every day… and the smell of coffee that reminds him of warm sunny Sundays in a beach cafe with sand between his toes. One day, Peter woke up and realized that software development is not only about code, but also about people: From his teammates till the end user. Some people you just give donuts and some you need to give a little bit more. Peter is on a journey to make everyone happy.
If he is not sitting on a mountain bike or playing the trumpet, you might find him at a local user group to hang out with other geeks.
