Using brain science to boost your Scrum Events! With Evelien Roos

Needs a location

To get the most out of the Scrum Events I tried a lot of things. I experimented with formats and setups. Did Facilitator training and looked for interesting games and Sprint Retrospective formats. But I never looked further than that. Until I did the Training From the Back of The Room and was intrigued by how the brain works in a training and learning setting.

Learning more about the human brain I figured out one could also use Brain Science to keep the Scrum Events alive and worthwhile. For example, research shows that our brain 'disconnects' after 10 minutes when nothing changes. In a training setting you would use this knowledge to change the setting regularly or to make short exercises or chunks of information. In a Scrum event, you could use this knowledge also.

How? That's what we will explore during this session. There will be an exploration on how one can use Brain Science to keep Scrum Events live, active and worthwhile.

Evelien Acun-Roos is an experienced Agile Coach at Xebia Academy, a Professional Scrum Trainer at Scrum.org and Certified trainer for Training From the Back of the Room. She has a profound knowledge of Agile and Scrum and knows how to transfer that to Teams, Scrum Masters and Product Owners.

With her passion for Agile teams and individual members within, Evelien is the go-to trainer to get your Scrum team up and running or further improve their skills.

# Christ Stone - The Virtual Agile Coach

For ten years now I've been fostering an environment for success of high-performing teams and organizations through the use of the agility. I've worked across a wide range of industries and with some of the largest organizations in the world, as well as with smaller, more lean enterprises.

As The Virtual Agile coach, I intend to enable frictionless innovation, regardless of location. I'm therefore a firm believer in enabling agility whilst working virtually. Through this platform, I'll share my advice, guidance, coaching, mentoring and training, along with a series of actionable experiments for you to try.
