What we're about

Welcome to ScrumRVA, Richmond VA’s official Scrum User Group sponsored by the Scrum Alliance!

Our goal is to provide a place for Scrum Practitioners to learn, grow, and flourish in applying Scrum in the world of work. Whether you’re in IT, Marketing, Sales, etc., Scrum is a framework that can be used to deliver just about any kind of complex work. We’re a relaxed bunch and strive to create an environment of safety where you can bring your real-world struggles and questions and collaborate with other like-minded Scrum Practitioners who are genuinely interested in helping each other succeed with Scrum.

We meet the last Tuesday of every month and leverage formats such as Lightning Talks, Lean Coffee, Open Space, Guest Speakers, and more.

Whether you’ve just started out, or you’re a seasoned Scrum Coach, join us for food, fellowship, and fun with Scrum!

Our User Group is Free and open to EVERYONE!

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, need a sounding board, or just need some advice. If you’d like to volunteer, help coordinate, present at an upcoming event, etc., please send us a message here on meetup!

High Performing Scrum Teams Need Psychological Safety. Here's How to Create It.

There's no team without trust.

In this interactive talk, Mark Palmer will help you explore traits of high performing Scrum Teams and discover how to foster psychological safety to create an environment where teams can bootstrap themselves into high performance.

Runtime: 6:00 - 7:30 PM [Eastern Time]
