Using Brain Science to Boost your Scrum Events with Evelien Roos
Scrum Masters of the Universe
To get the most out of the Scrum Events I tried a lot of things. I experimented with formats and setups. Did Facilitator training and looked for interesting games and Sprint Retrospective formats. But I never looked further than that. Until I did the Training From the Back of The Room and was intrigued by how the brain works in a training and learning setting.
Learning more about the human brain I figured out one could also use Brain Science to keep the Scrum Events alive and worthwhile. For example, research shows that our brain ‘disconnects’ after 10 minutes when nothing changes. In a training setting you would use this knowledge to change the setting regularly or to make short exercises or chunks of information. In a Scrum event, you could use this knowledge also.
How? That’s what we will explore during this session. There will be an exploration on how one can use Brain Science to keep Scrum Events live, active and worthwhile.
