Workshop "Scrum Patterns Workshop"
Scrum is a framework emphasizing effective team collaboration for managing product development. Scrum has been adopted by many within the agile community. There are various certifications, courses, and literature about Scrum such as CSM, CSPO and the Scrum Guide, to mention only a few. Often, Scrum teams start with background either from some courses and/or researching the core ideas from available material on the topic. This helps teams start using Scrum, but often with limited success. To get the full benefits from Scrum and move beyond the basics, there is more detailed knowledge on practicing and adapting Scrum to your environment and needs. Starting from “The Mist”, we will do a guided tour through several practices of Scrum being documented by the ScrumPLoP community in the form of patterns. The workshop is highly adaptable to the specificities of the participants, usually starting with a quick overview of the notion of patterns and the essentials of Scrum, and then visiting several Scrum Patterns, highlighting recurring problems and solutions, as well as their applicability and the rationale behind. After the workshop, it will be easier for the participants to “see” how to “self-organized teams” can develop “the right product” following the “Spirit of Scrum”.
