In this month’s talk our very own Sheetal Gordhan will talk about Scrum and the F word.

This session was not inspired by Gordon Ramsay. I was recently contemplating my Scrum Journey when I was smacked on the head with the realisation that my Scrum Journey has been sprinkled with the F word. Could the same be said of other people’s scrum journey?

I intend to discuss people’s relationship with the F word. I’ll also explain why I think a Scrum Master should encourage the F word to be used by the team, as well as find creative ways to persuade the business to embrace the F word. I will be sharing some of my insights gained through some serious stressing, grasping at straws, frantic researching as well as some unexpected light bulb moments. I’ll also tell you a little story about how using the F word persuaded a group of grown men to gather and dance!

Come and join me for a lighthearted session full of conversation, questions, and a sharing of some of my ideas and my experiences.

This session may contain scenes of violence and strong language.
