Thanks again to Node Boston for having me come speak last night. As promised, here are my slides for that talk. Also, since we had so many questions about geo-distributed teams and time zones, here’s a link to a blog post I wrote on Scrum + time zones.
Coaching Skills for Scrum Masters & The Self-Organizing Team
Scrum works best with — arguably, requires — a self-organizing team. If you want a high-performing and self-organizing team, it helps if your Scrum Master thinks like a coach instead of a manager. In this talk, Ben will discuss why this is true and will give you specific Scrum Mastering tips on how to think and act like a coach.
