Knowing the basics of Scrum is essential for any team member, but out in the trenches, a good ScrumMaster must be ready to identify and deal with Agile Antipatterns quickly to help his team and organization move forward.

What’s an Agile Antipattern? Something that at first blush may seem useful, but in practice is usually harmful to an agile initiative. It’s important to be able to sniff these out since they can damage your organization, and are often slippery to catch.

You’ll leave this workshop with a set of powerful tools to help you defuse antipatterns in the field.

Many organizations are based on a hierarchical bureaucracy, where functional managers direct workers, relay commands and report on progress. This approach is not compatible with much twenty-first century work, which is knowledge based and best carried out in self-organized teams.

Building on Steve Denning's "Radical Management," we provide guidance on what managers should do to best support the work of agile teams.

We will tap into experience gained during Deutsche Telekom's large scale Scrum transition, which has involved a dramatic change in management culture.

Summary: Type: Workshop

The product backlog is usually described as a list of work items. This hides many of the planning mechanisms in Scrum, such as planning horizons, progressive refinement and just-in-time elaboration, and can lead product management and development to view each other as "barbarians at the gate," attempting to seize areas where they seem to lack training, background and competence. To overcome this culture clash, this workshop explores how the traditional product management duties of release planning, roadmapping and portfolio management fit with Scrum.

The Systemic Consensus Principle is a new highly effective decision-making model. It is conflict solving and leads to sustainable and broadly accepted solutions. The method is easy to understand and simple to use. In teams, which decide by the Systemic Consensus Principle, it effects a total change in behavior away from power oriented towards a respectful and cooperative culture. In this workshop you will learn the basics of the SCP and how to apply it for decision-making in your team. You will understand the role of SCP as a powerful tool for organizational change management.

This highly interactive Agile Pedagogy session presents a case study of how scrum can be integrated into education highlighting the issues involved when transferring agile practices into education value systems. It invites participants to create and  design a learning object using scrum rather than traditional pedagogical stances. This will allow participants to re examine their own educational experiences and  those of their children in a fresh light. Participants will be asked to identify common barriers to implementation.

Resolve conflict. How? We examine a proven process to greatly enhance listening, understanding and empathy.

We look at rational and irrational views and the distinction between the automatic operations of the fast subconscious mind and the controlled operations of the slow conscious mind.

More sprint planning sessions result in the amount of work being underestimated than being overestimated. Why? The latest research on human decision making processes can help.

How are habits born and why they so hard to change? Forming new habits is the very essence of improving agility.
