How does this help teams?
In the previous strings, we created psychological safety and clarified the purpose of your group. The purpose of this third string is a more personal one; what is the impact you create as a Scrum practitioner?
We designed this string to help Scrum practitioners reflect on their impact on the empirical process that underlies the Scrum Framework. For some, this string can be a hard wake-up call that they've been focusing on the wrong things. For others, it will be a confirmation that they're going in the right direction.
How does it work?
The PDF outlines a detailed tried-and-tested 90-minute meetup that relies on Liberating Structures to engage and unleash your team. The string is designed with virtual gatherings in mind and includes:
- 10x10 Writing
- Helping Heuristics
The string is optimized for groups of any size beyond 4+ participants.
What do you receive?
- A 9 page full-color PDF.
- We take you through the flow of the string in great detail. Not only do we explain all the steps involved, but we also explain why they are happening. This should make it easier to design your own strings in the future.
- The instructions support all virtual collaboration tools where you can create breakouts our separate channels occasionally (such as Zoom, GotoWebinar, and Teams). You can set up an additional virtual whiteboard in a tool like Mural, Google Slides, or Miro if you prefer.
- The PDF outlines additional resources and useful reading, both to prepare and to distribute afterward.
