Topic: Nail it before you Scale it
With Scrum being a team based framework, the coaching approaches and models we use as Scrum Masters are in service of a team. However most approaches have an emphasis on intervening in the team’s process, dynamics and internal relationships.
Well validated research suggests that 60% of the influence upon a team’s effectiveness is through decisions made and actions taken before the team even exists. 30% is on how the team’s been launched into action, and only 10% of the influence on a team’s effectiveness is in the real-time coaching of the team dynamics and process, exactly where most coaches and Scrum Masters focus their efforts. The same research also identified 6 conditions that together predict up to 80% of a team’s effectiveness.
In this highly interactive workshop, learning is intended to happen through inclusion, participation and fun!
Through dialogue, practice and experiential learning, participants will gain an understanding of the environment and the “6 Conditions” that teams need to be in place in order to thrive. Participants will learn how to assess, diagnose, and determine where best to focus their efforts as Leaders, Coaches or Scrum Masters of teams and experience a number of tools and techniques for coaching teams on their own design.
