Scrum works best with–and arguably requires–a self-organizing team. If you want a high-performing and self-organizing team, it helps if your Scrum Master thinks like a coach instead of a manager. This session will discuss why this is true and will give you specific Scrum Mastering tips on how to think and act like a coach.

You will learn:

  • What does Scrum Mastering have to do with the Olympic sport of curling?
  • How do you keep your ego out of your team's way?
  • How do you ask questions in a way that helps your team solve their own problems and be self-sufficient?
