    Is the Scrum Framework too hard to understand? Discussed with trainers Magda, Kate, & Pawel

    Is the Scrum Framework too hard to understand? Discussed with trainers Magda, Kate, & Pawel

    Recorded in Paris, at the Scrum.org Face to Face event for Professional Scrum Trainers (PST). Scrum Facilitators own PST Sjoerd hosts Magdalena Kucharska, Kate Hobler and Pawel Mysliwiec. 
    In this episode of the Scrum Facilitators Community Podcast, the participants discuss the topic of understanding Scrum and the challenges associated with it. They address the perception that if people don't understand Scrum, the problem may lie within the framework itself. They emphasize that Scrum can be difficult to understand due to its complex nature and the presence of numerous myths surrounding it. The participants also highlight the importance of experienced coaches and facilitators who can guide individuals and organizations in adopting Scrum effectively. They suggest that the Scrum Guide, while deceptively simple, requires a specific mindset to fully comprehend its principles and apply them in practice. The podcast participants offer suggestions for potential improvements to the Scrum Guide, such as rephrasing certain terms and clarifying misconceptions. Overall, the conversation revolves around enhancing the understanding and application of Scrum to achieve better value delivery and collaboration.

    A big thanks goes out to my guests and colleagues for their courage to discuss this topic that came out of a ‘controversial statements’ brainstorm. I really wanted to discuss this topic, because Scrum experts can have a tendency to downplay or straight up strawman people’s struggles or grievances with Scrum,  by responding ”you are doing it wrong” and/or “you don’t really understand Scrum”. It was an interesting and insightful experience to discuss this topic with a group of Trainers whose job it is to guide and teach Scrum to improve teams and organizations effectiveness , by helping people understand Scrum and benefit from the framework.

    Ethics and Design as a force for good - Astrid Poot

    Ethics and Design as a force for good - Astrid Poot

    Sjoerd speaks with Astrid Poot: artist, rebel, designer - making people happier, stronger and more autonomous.

    We include many topics and ideas in to the discussion, like ethics in design, the power of great stories, system change and more.

    Astrid has created lots of tools to simplify the topic of ethics to help people express their values and ideas on ethics, leading to more ethical designs. You can also invite Astrid into your company, to help discuss ethics in design with your department or teams.

    Let us know what you think of the episode, tips for next topics or facilitators to invite, and all other input!

    Astrid wrote a (dutch) blog as a companion to our talk:  Ethiek kost moeite, maar is niet moeilijk. An english translation: Ethics takes effort but is not hard. In her blog you will find various tools, reading tips and Astrid's own publications, like 'Anger as a force for good' and the children's horror book 'De dag dat de aarde omhoog kwam'.
