January - Scrum Roles in Action

In Scrum, there are three basic roles - Team member, Product Owner and ScrumMaster. Each role is defined with some basic specific rights and responsibilities and filling in the rest of what one is supposed to do is left as an exercise for the participants. In this workshop, we will review the rights and responsibilities for the Scrum three roles (plus stakeholders) and discuss what those roles look like when preformed well.

In addition, we participate in a short simulation highlighting the common communication modes between these roles and consider what is optimal for producing high-performing teams.
