No! absolutely not, but Scrum may by now be like a pair of old walking boots shaped by many cross-country journeys and unexpected challenges. We are looking back at about 25 years of Scrum history with today's announcement of the most recent version of the Scrum guide, brought to us by the originators of Scrum: Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland. These software veterans presented Scrum at the OOPSLA conference in 1995 after experimenting with it for some years. Nothing much happened until the publication of the seminal book “Agile software development with Scrum” in 2002, where the Scrum journey really started. In this online follow-up webinar, we cursorily trace the history and impact of Scrum, and how it has developed over the years. This includes the development of the Scrum Guide (SG) over the years. The authors still call this document “The Definitive Guide to Scrum”. The real meat of the session is however to try and pinpoint the true usefulness of Scrum today in its basic form as presented in the Scrum Guide and the more elaborate extension catering for other scenarios than those catered for by the Guide. We will highlight a number of important points in the Scrum Guide. There will be some online challenges and opportunities for discussing highlighted items. We round off by explaining why we have created the extended framework đ—”đ—Žđ—¶đ—čđ—Č 𝗟đ—Čđ—źđ—» 𝗟đ—Čđ—źđ—±đ—Čđ—żđ˜€đ—”đ—¶đ—œ to cater for the whole organization and an overview of what it is. Scrum may be our trusted old walking boots, and a necessity for a journey towards radical improvement, but there is more to a journey than good walking. Join us for an interesting hour and half. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 𝐓𝐱𝐩𝐱𝐧𝐠/đ“đšđšđ„đŹ 1.5 hours / Zoom The Meetup will open 10 minutes before the event. đđ„đŹ. đžđ§đšđ›đ„đž đČđšđźđ« 𝐳𝐹𝐹𝐩 𝐯𝐱𝐝𝐞𝐹 Experience shows that everybody gets most out of the interactions (exercises in groups) by being able to see eachother.

  • Leadership Agility for a Complex World - with Michael Hamman

In light of this, I want to propose a notion of leadership that transcends the commonly held action-orientation and positional authority with which we commonly associate that term.

    We will challenge *đČđšđźđ«* belief system during this Meetup with Thomas ElkjĂŠr.

The framework is built on Open Space Technology and is essentially an enabler for the new ways of working that are supportive of agile concepts while moving deeper into self-organization. Ron’s background is grounded in Agile since 2002, and software development since he was a teen. He is an acclaimed speaker and keynote known for getting across his passion for next phase organizations, ways of working, and agility.

As agilists we can set up the teams, get the team past storming and then to norming quite quickly. And then 
 that conflict happens. The elephant in the room that people tend to not talk about, that we wish would go away by itself but it doesn’t. Many folks fear conflict and especially when it get’s gnarly. Over the years, I have developed many strategies to handle those hot conversations. The biggest is learning how to engage with conflict compassionately, seeing both sides, not judging, and being curious to find the gem that is under the conflict. As agilists or team leads who want performing teams, we need to engage the teams past a team agreement, and understand how conflict shows up in ourselves and how it shows up with others. And then we can get to an agreement on how we will resolve conflict. 🍀 đ˜đšđźđ« đ­đšđ€đž-𝐚𝐰𝐚đČ𝐬 🍀 In this interactive session, Joanne will be providing tools and techniques of how she works with conflict in her teams from saboteurs, conflict modes, conflict resolution, to antidotes of the 4 toxins of a team. đŒđžđžđ­đźđ© đ…đšđ«đŠđšđ­ We will be using zoom for this online session.

Teams that make a difference understand what it takes to communicate with each other. They have a shared vision. They know how each individual team member contributes to each other and to the vision. They are able to take conflict and transform it to a solution for the best of the team. They do not rely on a single leader as they are all leaders and respect that within each other. I am an expert agile coach, leadership coach, executive, and a mentor to the Agile Community. My expertise in agile practices, team building, leadership coaching, and leading others has allowed me to create teams that make a difference. I have over 30 years of experience in leading teams and I have 8 years experience in the agile space working across Banking, Retail, and Telecommunications Industries.

You unleash human potential by knowing your employees deeply and taking time to understand what would make them go in the direction that you want them to go in, because THEY want to go in that direction. Leadership practices need to be adjusted to the new paradigm of employee-driven organizations and it will be more about creating prerequisites for innovation in infrastructure, culture, processes and systems, than providing strict rules & policies and ticking off compliance with the same. Motivating employees becomes possible with less control, transparent visualization, trust, and continuous improvement, together with a deep knowledge of what makes each and every employee tick. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 𝗖ᮏɮᮛᮇɮᮛ ‱ Agile Leadership & HR – what is it? ‱ Human theory X and Y ‱ Self-organizing teams for optimal performance and engagement ‱ Motivation – how discovering inner motives can help you drive performance and create Psychological Safety ‱ Agile performance, learning, recruitment, and compensation – what is the difference from traditional HR processes? ‱ Agile, learning, and Psychological Safety – what do they have in common?

    Here at AgilityLab we continue our summer series on đ—°đ—Œđ—șđ—œđ—čđ—Čđ˜…đ—¶đ˜đ˜† like e.g. Cynefin. In this session we have invited Woody Zuill (probably best known for đ— đ—Œđ—Ż đ—Łđ—żđ—Œđ—Žđ—żđ—źđ—șđ—șđ—¶đ—»đ—Ž ) to lead us through some insightful and engaging conversations about đ—”đ—Œđ˜„ đ˜đ—Œ đ—ș𝗼𝗾đ—Č đ˜đ—”đ—¶đ—»đ—Žđ˜€ đ—Č𝗼𝘀𝘆.

During this Meetup, I'd like us to consider: ------------------------------------------------------------- - What makes it difficult to be effective in our work? - What would it look like if everyone at work was able to contribute their best, and to excel in their work and life? - What would the result be if this could be achieved? - Can we make our work easier? - What would it take to make this a reality? - Is this about systems thinking, or values and principles, or strategy, or practices, or techniques, or just "hiring the right people"? ------------------------------------------------------------- There is a lot of research and writing about system thinking, teamwork, open workspaces, flow, velocity, biases, assumptions, frameworks. How can this help us? I suspect it isn't the workers, or the managers, or the leaders - there are some folks who seem to be finding a way that works for them and their workplace - can we all find a path?
