About our Program…
A ScrumMaster is first a master in Scrum. A ScrumMaster is a sensei – teacher and student – on a journey of learning and growth. Understanding the Lean and Agile principles behind Scrum provide the ScrumMaster the tools for adapting Scrum practices to best serve their organization. ScrumMasters guide teams in learning through doing. This workshop will provide you with a foundational understanding of Scrum and how to catalyze that knowledge in your organization.
ScrumMasters facilitate team adoption, learning, and implementation of Scrum. Effective ScrumMasters facilitate effective and efficient meetings; engage multiple roles and stakeholders in critical discussion to build consensus; and leverage conflict resolution strategies in resolving differences and organizational impediments. This workshop will guide you through facilitation techniques that enrich team engagement and maximize collaboration.
Coaching for Growth
The ScrumMaster is a coach for a team, often operating from a growth perspective and challenging the team to evaluate and improve their approach to delivering value. Effective Scrum teams focus on improving both the value they deliver and the means by which they deliver it. This workshop will help you identify, evaluate and inspire self-organizing behaviors to improve team capability.
A team operates in the culture and structures of a broader system – understanding and unblocking bottlenecks are key to team agility. This workshop will empower you with the tools and techniques to integrate distributed teams, align teams to value, and engage leaders on the values and behaviors to foster highly productive and motivated teams.
