Meetup: Hands-on Agile #11: Liberating Structures for Scrum: The Basics
TL; DR: Liberating Structures for Scrum: The Basics
The eleventh Hands-on Agile meetup will kick-off a series of meetings to help you create Scrum events based on Liberating Structures (or short: LS).
Liberating Structures cover a set of easy to learn, yet powerful ways to collaborate as a team—even as a large team—, overcoming traditional communications approaches like presentations, managed discussions, or another disorganized brainstorming at which the loudest participants tend to prevail.
Use Liberating Structures to Improve Your Scrum Events
Throughout the coming months, we will we create exciting new ways how to improve classic Scrum events like the Daily Scrum, the Sprint Review or the Sprint Retrospective. Moreover, we will use Liberating Structures for difficult challenges that agile coaches, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners face, for example, reviewing the existing product design process. Or how to sift through an oversized product backlog to focus again on the value-creating tasks. Or how to coach team members in asking for help from their teammates effectively.
Using Liberating Structures will improve not just the typical Scrum team events. They are particularly well-suited to improve the collaboration of larger groups, for example, all of the Scrum teams of a Nexus. They also allow to include stakeholders from all parts of an organization or your customers in meta-level activities such as retrospectives.
This initial meetup of the “Liberating Structures for Scrum” series will address the basics of the underlying idea of Liberating Structures and introduce the first of the 33 microstructures that will be used during the upcoming meetups.
The Hands-on Agile meetup #12—“Liberating Structures for Scrum: The Sprint Retrospective”—will take place in early March 2019.
