Fixing Your Scrum: Practical Solutions to Common Scrum Problems
Presented by Ryan Ripley, PST and Todd Miller, PST

Broken Scrum practices limit your organization’s ability to take full advantage of the agility Scrum should bring: the Development Team isn’t cross-functional or self-organizing, the Product Owner doesn’t get value for their investment, and stakeholders and customers are left wondering when something—anything—will get delivered.

In this webinar, Professional Scrum Trainers Ryan Ripley and Todd Miller will walk through some content in their new book, Fixing Your Scrum: Practical Solutions to Common Scrum Problems, and talk about how experienced Scrum Masters balance the demands of these three levels of servant leadership, while removing organizational impediments and helping Scrum Teams deliver real-world value. You will discover how to visualize your work, resolve impediments, and empower your teams to self-organize and deliver using advanced coaching and facilitation techniques that honor and support the Scrum Values and agile principles.

7 Leadership Secrets from Ender Wiggin (Ender's Game)
Presented by Hans Eckman, Info-Tech Research Group

For managers, authority is assigned and leadership assumed, but there are big differences between management and leadership. Leadership must be demonstrated and authority earned through trust and respect. Many employees feel frustrated that they aren’t in a position to be leaders, and they often feel alone and underappreciated. In “Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card, Ender Wiggin faced similar challenges as he moved through the battle school. Initially Ender was not only in a contributor position, but he was actively inhibited from demonstrating value. Ender quickly learned what makes a true leader that people will follow, regardless of the organizational structure and institutional rules. Join us to learn the 7 secrets of leadership Ender developed during his time at Battle and Command schools. See how his leadership lessons can be applied to your professional growth, development, and perspective as a leader in your company and projects. Even if you are not ready to step from the shadows yet, these lessons will improve your work as a key contributor and facilitate your path to future leadership.

Learning Objectives:
·        Identify leadership traps and how to avoid them.
·        Learn how to apply leadership techniques within teams, regardless if you are in a “lead” position.
·        Discover non-traditional leadership approaches based on applied lessons.
