What we're about

Greetings Agilists!

Our group is for everyone who is interested in increasing their agile mindset and practices while networking with like minds. We meet monthly to hear great speakers  and interact with this fun community of folks. We look forward to walking away each month with new tidbits of agile information we can add to our toolbox while expanding the agile community. Come join us!

This meetup is one of several Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Communities of Practice (COPs) that are associated with the Agile Denver organization, a non-profit group which provides support and resources to our community including an array of specialized content, social media, and an annual Mile High Agile conference, all of which can be accessed via our website at https://www.agile-denver.org/. Be sure to visit our website for news, events, recorded content, and opportunities to engage.

Essential Skills of Successful Scrum Masters and Agile Teams

Needs a location

Zoom link will be provided day of event here in the body of this description.

There are only so many hours in the day. Expectations set on Scrum Masters by organizations sometimes take that time away.

While you may be busy all day, you might not be working at your full potential.

As a Scrum Master you need to excel in many skills and develop various areas of knowledge. Some of them are absolutely necessary for you to just start making progress. You don’t want to miss on those! Without focusing on the right skills and knowledge, you might easily fall back into misunderstood Scrum Master stances and be evaluated based on irrelevant metrics.

To help you get back to 100% Scrum Master you need to not only build your own skills, but also help your team build theirs. In this talk, I’ll walk you through essential Scrum skills and how to focus on them. You’ll walk away with your Scrum Master development plan in hands so that the next 360º performance review evaluates what actually matters.
