Event description

Description

Perfectly positioned in the City of London, the Scrum Exchange is the foremost UK venue for trading ideas and knowledge—a unique exchange where everyone comes away richer.

Intent

The Scrum Exchange is an occasional event hosted by Tobias Mayer and Thoughtbot. Its purpose is to bring together dedicated and passionate Scrum practitioners of various levels of experience, in order to share their ideas, insights, stories, interactive exercises and methods of coaching with one another, so that the Scrum community as a whole grows stronger, closer, more thoughtful, and more supportive.

Implementation

This is not a conference. There are no name badges, no tracks, no keynotes, no invited speakers, no superstars, no leaders, no pre-ordered corporate lunches, and no product promotion or sponsorship. Each Exchange has a space-holding facilitator who will offer light-touch opening and closing activities, and maintain the framework for the day. The program is created on the day, by whoever is there. Everyone is an equal participant and can choose to do as much or as little as they like.

Reflection

Periods of reflection will occur throughout the day to share learnings, adjust the agenda, raise (and resolve) concerns, assess value and find ways to improve on the fly. Participants take responsibility to meet their own needs and to serve the group as a whole.

Logistics

The event runs from 9 am to 5 pm. Participants are encouraged to arrive at 8.30. Tea, coffee, pastries and fruit will be served for breakfast, and various cold drinks and snacks throughout the day. Lunch will be a self-organized experience ;) Thoughtbot is surrounded by excellent restaurants, pubs and cafes with a street foodmarket ten minutes' walk away.

This event is limited to twenty-five people.




Responses to the October Scrum Exchange

"I highly recommend The Scrum Exchange. After spending the day experimenting with workshop ideas, taking part in retrospectives, futurespectives, example mapping, listening to industry experts impart their wisdom, learning more about coaching individuals and teams (yes all in one day!), I have a full head and heart. Thanks for creating a safe, open and powerful environment to learn and grow."Noel Warnell

"A great Scrum Exchange last Tuesday. An awesome group of people and some interesting/eye opening conversations. Thank you." —James Willis
