Scrum Masters are, according to the Scrum Guide, responsible for the effectiveness of the Scrum team. Fred shares his own understanding of that responsibility, and how his perspective on it has evolved over time. In this segment, we talk about Evidence Based Management (EBM), and the values that EBM suggests are the key focus for teams and organizations.
Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: Remember the Future, prospective for risks to prepare for
Fred likes to ask the teams to, once in a while, focus on the future. Using pictures from the Back to the Future movie series, he helps the team prospect risks by imagining the future. This can be done in the form of asking questions such as: “imagine yourselves 3 months from now, what were the behaviors you had that helped you deliver, and what were the challenges you overcame?”
Retrospectives, planning sessions, vision workshops, we are continuously helping teams learn about how to collaborate in practice! In this Actionable Agile Tools book, Jeff Campbell shares some of the tools he’s learned over a decade of coaching Agile Teams. The pragmatic coaching book you need, right now!
