PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT GAME
JUNE 21, 2016
Warsaw, Grupa Pracuj
Are you a Product Owner? Or perhaps you would like to become a Product Owner one day? Or perhaps you are one of those crazy Scrum Addicted F*cking Enthusiasts (SAFE)? Actually it does not really matter. The most important thing is that you like playing games. And you like learning about building products. Do you?
SCRUM MASTER’S TOOLBOX
JUNE 10, 2016
Warsaw, Agora SA
Tools, tools, practices, tools… and even more tools. All Scrum Masters need them to work with their teams. It is better if practices are practiced and the tools are used. We believe that practicing and experiencing new knowledge allows us to implement new knowledge in our contexts. Learn by active participation and practicing.
WHAT IS THAT SCRUM MASTERS REALLY DO?
MARCH 23, 2016
Warsaw, Grupa Pracuj
Let’s talk about Scrum Masters again. Yes! Let’s tackle the issue what is the role of the Scrum Master, what are they responsible for, are they leaders, masters or whatever?
This time it is gonna be serious. Let’s talk about some real-life scenarios. Say – the team has a hard deadline with zero chances of meeting it. But they want to, they struggle, they work overtimes and weekends. What should Scrum Master do in this scenario?
SCRUM@WORK: SCRUM MASTERING
NOVEMBER 23, 2015
Warsaw, StepStone Services
This time let’s talk about Scrum Masters. Yes! Let Scrum Masters talk about Scrum at their work. What the f*ck are they paid for?
Scrum Master’s role has been described in roughly hundreds / thousands various articles and books. But on the other hand only Scrum Masters know how different their day to day life is from what all the books say. Find out why…
SCRUM@WORK: SCALING SCRUM
APRIL 15, 2015
Warsaw, Centrum Konferencyjne Adgar Plaza
“Scaling” as a term is already almost as worn-out as “agile” these days. Scaling frameworks pop up like mushrooms on cow sh… pardon… after a rain. People even make fun of it – LAFABLE (Cohn), so let’s dive in…
SH*T THE REAL PRODUCT OWNERS DO
NOVEMBER 26, 2014
Warsaw, Golden Floor – Atrium Centrum
Tides are turning so rapidly these days. Running a product, dealing with the team, the users and the stakeholders, being savvy about technology and market trends is a rough job. Running it all iteratively and incrementally is a bit easier…. or is it? Scrum can help with complexity and uncertainty… so they say. Scrum can help to keep the costs under control… or can it?
Really good job with PDG! It’s good to fail, so we can learn more :)

Michał Idzikowski/Scrum@Work: Scrum Mastering
Hey you! Yeah you! We’ve caught your eye, haven’t we? This means you might need a change. Out of energy? It is time to go out to see new things and meet new people. A simple change of scenery could do miracles.
The idea is fairly straightforward. You sort the legal stuff at your company to bring someone to visit you. The visitor does the same for you at his/her company. It might be a day or a week. Take part in our Scrum Masters Exchange Programme. See how others deal with the same problems you have.
Scrum Master Exchange Programme is for you to see that your problems are not unique snowflakes and there is a lot of people solving them right now. Shoot us an info describing who are you, why are you interested in participating and what can you provide. We’ll do the rest.
WHY DO WE DO IT?
If you practice Scrum (therefore we can call you a scrummer) — either as a Developer or a Product Owner, a Scrum Master, a leader, or simply a rebellious soul challenging your organisation — you know Scrum is difficult and all about hard work. And we know it will get you. Oh, we know it will. Here and there. Now and then. This way or another. It will get you hard. Therefore we want to nudge you in order to get you prepared. ’Cause at the end of the day you, my dear, need to scrumvive.
We love all those challenges, nightly drills and other sleep depriving things that Scrum reveals. And we know that Scrum is all about people and learning. That’s why we created Scrumvival. We want you — the scrummers — to meet and discuss, to inspire and get inspired, to argue and ally, but most of all – to learn and fail. And enjoy it all through the way as much as we do. ’Cause failing, my dear, is the only way to gain experience.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a bunch of scrummers with living experience of applied Scrum committed to help you experience Scrum. We are all different, which makes us special. No more special than you are though.
STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT YOU'RE LOOKIN' FOR?
Awww, c’est une catastrophe! But no worries! We’re here to guide you! Did you know, that you can order and event at your place? Or even get a Scrum Master Guided trip? Hell Yeah! Just let us know, and we’ll be happy to get to know your needs and tailor an event that will fit your expectations.
Hell Yeah! Just let us know, and we’ll be happy to get to know your needs and tailor an event that will fit your expectations.
OK. This time for real. Want to host an event? Want to join? Have an idea for a topic? This is so cool. Drop us a line. We’ll reply faster than swallow carrying a coconut migrates in autumn.
You can also be old-fashioned and use email. firstname.lastname@example.org However if you dream of getting tons of spam from us, we are terribly sorry. We are too tired travelling and teaching Scrum, to send any spam. There is a lot of folks out there that would be more than happy helping you with that.
You can always use facebook. We are too old to really understand what is it all about, but couple of young bright developers gave us a short intro.
Get committed. Stay focused. Be open. Show respect. Have courage. Scrum values
And do you have what it takes to hold to them?
You've got guts, we know that. We all have to have that special something to keep us going in the motherscrumming world. So we did a little rule-breaking survey for you. And for us. It's too long, and it's boring (you don't say?) and it measures your Scrum Values Potential so we can check how agile you actually are.
