Scrum This! 

An Improvisational comedian turned Scrum Master and Agile Coach, Kate Papilio-Davis brings some much needed light and humor to the often complex and murky world of agile and agile transformations. Agile transformations tend to come from the top yet it’s up to us in the trenches to figure out what happened, why, and how best to adapt.

If you’re part of the 99% who have been “voluntold” you are now agile, Katie is here for you with no BS talk and a needed dose of snark. To quote “Scrum This!”, her first non-fiction book,: “Some number of years ago (you) were asked to “adopt agile,” only to find out that the puppy you’ve adopted doesn’t fit in with anything your company says or does and is definitely prone to piddling all over any sort of controls your organization had in place.”

Let’s chat at this highly interactive session:

  • Introductions (5 minutes)
  • What Goes Wrong in Agile Transformations and What to Do. (20 minutes)
  • Undercoaching: Top Down vs Bottom Up Self-Organizing for the Win! Facilitated Discussion (20 minutes)
  • Improv: “My First Day as a Scrum Master” (15 minutes)
