Liberating Structures for Scrum
Created by Keith McCandless and Henri Lipmanowicz, Liberating Structures cover a set of easy to learn, yet powerful ways to collaborate as a team—even as a (very) large team by Scrum standards—, overcoming traditional communications approaches like presentations, managed discussions, or another disorganized brainstorming at which the loudest participants tend to prevail.
Liberating Structures are well suited to improve the level of engagement among participants of Scrum events, thus stimulating the kind of outcomes that are necessary to create learning organizations. Liberating Structures also provide an excellent toolbox to handle Product Backlog refinements or improving the Definition of Done of an engineering organization. Liberating Structures are my tool of choice when large groups of participants come together for retrospectives, self-selection of teams, or figuring out where to go next.
During the training, we will use a fictitious startup—Megabrain-io—to learn how to apply Liberating Structures to typical Scrum Master duties, thus enhancing your toolbox for facilitation. The MegaBrain.io scenario is as follows:
A year ago, MegaBrain.io was a well-funded, Berlin-based hopeful in the race to improve schooling by creating tailored curricula for each student derived from an AI. Today, MegaBrain.io’s situation is dire:
- Only eight months of runway left.
- Prospective new VCs are not in sight.
- Existing VCs are not pleased with the growth metrics for the last six months and hence are reluctant to provide more capital to MegaBrain.io.
- Conflicts among the founders as well as between Product and Engineering become more frequent as well as more public.
- The last Sprint was a disaster; for the third time in a row, MegaBrain.io’s three Scrum Teams failed to deliver a much-anticipated product Increment. They are now almost two months late.
Your task at the end of the training is to suggest a retrospective format with an extended circle of attendees, facilitating a look back at the last three months.
The LS Workshop for Scrum
This Liberating Structures training is well suited for beginners of Liberating Structures if you already have a basic understanding of Scrum roles, events, and artifacts. (However, I would not recommend the workshop to those who are unfamiliar with both Scrum and Liberating Structures.)
