PERFECT AND IMPERFECT SCRUM
Which is it for your teams? Perfect or IMPERFEECT? Through her in-depth knowledge of psychology and human nature, Beth will take us on a view of Scrum from the aspect of being mindful about our actions.
As Beth states: "There is a beauty in implementing perfect Scrum, rather like the beauty of finding an unblemished rose in late summer in your garden.
Imagine a world where there are no release-dates, and backlogs are perfectly groomed, prioritizations followed, interrupts kept at bay, continuous delivery happening smoothly." In this talk we will learn how to embrace imperfection, and live in the moment, as we mindfully bring organizations along the road of change towards a "beautiful Scrum".
