Liberating Structures - An Antidote to Zombie Scrum

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Scrum is HUGE! It’s massively adopted by organizations. That’s of course awesome! Except for the fact that many organizations and teams think they’re doing Scrum, while they’re not. Sure, they’ve got all the Scrum roles, events and artifacts in place. But there’s no working software at the end of the Sprint. There’s no drive to improve. No involvement of customers and users during development. This might look like Scrum from the surface. But it isn’t. This is Zombie Scrum, and we need to stop it!

During the presentation, you’ll learn more about the causes and symptoms of Zombie Scrum. Even more important, you’ll discover an antidote: Liberating Structures. Liberating Structures are easy-to-learn microstructures that quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone. Liberating Structures are a disruptive innovation that can replace more controlling or constraining approaches and are therefore the perfect antidote to Zombie Scrum!

Please note: this presentation is not for the faint of heart. Be brave. Join the resistance and help us fight Zombie-Scrum!
