We start this episode by talking about the contribution that the certification programs have had towards the Agile adoption process. But we also discuss some of the challenges that they brought with them. As a community we acknowledge that certification was part of the solution during the initial stage of Agile adoption, but we must now look forward, and define what’s next in the Agile education landscape in the next few years (2022 an onwards).
This story starts with what was supposed to be a normal, routine daily standup. However, that was not to happen. Two team members started a shouting match that left Juan confused, and surprised. Listen in to learn what happened next, and how to prepare for those, unexpected, but eventually unavoidable conflicts that Scrum Masters will face!

Failures help us stay grounded, they are reminders that reality isn’t always as we expect it to be. And these failures make us better Scrum Masters. In this episode, we talk about the learning journey for a young Scrum Master, and how Shoaib slowly climbed the learning curve, and what were the steps he took. Learning from other’s stories is a shortcut we can take in our own learning journey, and Shoaib’s story is a great example of that.
