What we're about

We are an endorsed Scrum Alliance User Group primarily based and operating in London.

We are a user group of Scrum advocates who wish to promote the Agile and Scrum values within the community and beyond. Leveraging the knowledge of industry experts, our objective is to support people where we can. But only when they are ready to be Agile and potentially use Scrum.

We do what we say by living the Scrum Values:

Focus:

We focus on the presentation(s) per event (but it can be presented by multiple people). This allows the presenter(s) and audience to gain the maximum value from the event, rather than being a show case for something else.

Courage:

We organise as a team and welcome people to contribute so, they too can gain experience of volunteering for the community. We believe there is no monopoly on experience.

Openness:

We are a free, open group that tries to resolve any concerns and is as transparent as we possibly can be.

Commitment:

We are committed to the success of Agile and Scrum by supporting the community with this user group.

Respect:

We respect everyone inside the group and also outside the group. We have no desire to compete, but rather to share knowledge even if it could be seen as being at the expense of our group. We do not judge and we wish all to be respected even if others may deem they are not worthy of that respect.

For that, we will always support diversity in our community and we will start doing that by promoting female speakers for the first 12 months to show who they are and what they have to offer!

Our users are committed to these values because we believe that an Agile Mindset can enhance people’s lives, often resulting in easing communication, reducing stress and enhancing happiness. It is well known that happy people are more productive people, translating into real Value.

We want everyone to be able to experience joy from the group.

Thank you.

Attendees: This Scrum User Group is entirely free!

We aim to keep it that way. All that is required is that your turn up, enjoy the event and be respectful to other attendees.

Why Great Leaders Must Unlearn to Succeed in Today's Exponential World

ABSTRACT: Scrum Event and Barry O'Reilly present Why Great Leaders Must Unlearn to Succeed in Today's Exponential World There’s a learning curve to leading any successful venture. But when leaders begin to rely on past achievements or get stuck in outdated thinking and practices that no longer work, they need to take a step back―and unlearn. This innovative and actionable framework from executive coach Barry O’Reilly shows leaders how to break the cycle of once-useful but no limiting mindsets and behaviours that were effective in the past but are no longer relevant in the current business climate and may now stand in the way of your success. Unlearn: Let Go of Past Success to Achieve Extraordinary Results (https://amzn.to/2JQYJq0) is a transformative system that shows leaders how to rethink their strategies, retool their capabilities, and revitalize their businesses for stronger, longer-lasting success.
