Topic Overview: Scrum Master Panel
We’ve had the Developer Panel and the Product Owner Panel. Now it’s time for the Scrum Master Panel. The other panels were full of interest and discussion. This meeting will be very similar, except the panel will be loaded with Scrum Masters. We’ll talk with 4 Scrum Masters about their experiences on agile teams. We’ll hear about their biggest challenges, and also what helps make their job easier. We’ll find out what they each think is the MOST IMPORTANT factor in in getting a team to “high-performing”. We’ll also hear what helps their teams produce better products – and what are the biggest detriments to productivity. Our goal is to have real discussions with real Scrum Masters who do the job. The moderator will ask a few questions to get things going…and then turn the questioning over to the audience. This will be a great opportunity to hear from Scrum Masters from different sized companies.
We have the following SCRUM MASTERS confirmed.
- Mary Andersen – Ticketmaster
- Brett Dunn – Liberty Distribution
- Mike Badgett – Infusionsoft
- Mike Robbins – Workiva
