As Scrum Masters we are constantly dealing with change. That’s one of the topics we cover every week here on the podcast.
As Scrum Masters, we are responsible for helping progress all kinds of changes. Personal, team or organizational level changes. Perhaps the Scrum Master role is one of the few roles that specifically dedicates itself to helping organizations change. After all, it is one of our Agile Values (Responding/adapting to change over following a plan).
This year’s Scrum Master Summit is all about change. Not just change in the sense we deal with every day, but also change for us, as Scrum Masters.
This year’s Scrum Master Summit title is: “Lead The Change!”
Why is this year’s conference titled “Lead the Change!”?
We’ve decided to title this year’s Summit as “Lead The Change!”. We did that because we believe that, as Scrum Masters, we must show the example (that’s what leading means), and we must not only apply the tools for change, but we must become the change. We do that by modelling the right behaviours, by helping our colleagues, teams, and organizations, but we also do that by showing the rest of the professional world what change leadership is in practice.
As Scrum Masters we must show the example, but also become the change we want to effect.
Just as we do in the Scrum Master Toolbox podcast every weekday, we want this Summit to be a place where we come for stories, and to learn from the people – like us – that are out there leading the change every day.
