You are in management and maybe you know it. Dysfunctional teams, innovation moving forward slowly, your organization rather fragmented into parts with many friction points, and sometimes you lose faith that agility can help. It is true that a large number of agile teams struggle. This is often despite the fact that they may have a Scrum Master experienced in the methodologies and several years of agile experience behind them.
Agile teams nowadays commonly navigate in highly complex environments among programs, projects, scaled agility, DevOps processes, infrastructure constraints ‑ that is where Scrum Masters and clearly defined methodologies often cease to suffice. The competencies that they need go far beyond the methodologies and often go beyond agility itself.
What such teams and your organization need is not a Scrum Master with better knowledge of Scrum, but a multi-competency role – referred to as Scrum Master 2.0. Join us in an interactive workshop to get to know the necessary competencies and way of working. You will take away a list of what you should want to be able to work better with complexity.
