Get off the Scrum Master Hamster Wheel—A Simple Model to Navigate Complexity

Do you feel like you're on the Scrum Master hamster wheel? If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by the number of challenges you see and struggling to know how best to spend your time and energy to help your Scrum Team and organization improve, you are not alone.

The good news is there is an easier way to navigate the complexity and unpredictability, to figure out how best to spend your time and energy to maximize your impact.

There are no best practices when it comes to complex work. However, we can leverage simplicity to tackle complexity. In this talk, I will take you behind the scenes to how I approach Scrum Mastery and share a real-world case study as we explore how to use my signature Model for Agility Enablement. This model is a simple tool to help you navigate complexity and unpredictability in ANY context, so you can focus on helping your team improve AND feel more confidence and ease in the process.

You will learn:
– Simple ways to deepen awareness and create more transparency.
– How to discern which practices may be helpful to address the challenges your Scrum Team is facing.
– What's possible when you stop chasing symptoms and drive to the root cause.
– How to see the whole, so you can choose intentionally where to focus in order to maximize your impact.
