Scrum Beyond

    Online

    Reframing & Healing a Fractured World

    We are in a historical period of disruption and crisis on many fronts. Events of the past four years have led us to become withdrawn, socially disengaged, even suspicious of one another. The rise of populism, identity politics, cancel culture, and a pouring out of fake news and conspiracy theory has created rifts in community, mistrust and suspicion of our neighbours, and fear of “the other”, fuelled by social media platforms and mainstream press alike. Overwhelmed by anger and even hatred we retreat into self, with the resulting isolation causing a major crisis of mental illness.

    What has Scrum got to do with all this? Absolutely nothing, if we use Scrum as a way to coerce and micromanage a workforce (sadly, how many use it) but almost everything if we embrace Scrum for what it truly is: a team-centric, relationship-oriented, other-focussed, uplifting, autonomous and reflective way to show up for work and in life. Scrum is a simple framework for solving complex problems—and we have so many of those today!

    It has long been recognised that an Agile approach to any creative work, sharpens an organisation’s competitive edge. The intent of Scrum Beyond is both to share experiences and to explore new avenues.

    This event is conducted using Open Space Technology—the cutting-edge of self-organisation. There is no prescribed agenda; the schedule is created on the day of the event, on the fly, and continuously updated. As ideas come to participants they schedule sessions to explore. If at least one other person is interested we have a new session. The online space we are using, with its infinite breakout rooms, allows for as many new sessions as we need.
