Inventing & implementing “The Scrum Master Dilemma Game”
Date & Time
Wednesday, June 14, 2023, 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Charlotte Frandsen Julie Ravn

Authors: Agile Coach Charlotte Frandsen, Scrum Master Julie Ravn and First Vice President, Lars Orbesen. Are you a Scrum master or an agile coach who is trying to go from servant leadership to becoming a True Leader? Do you feel the transition is hard and do you feel stuck in dilemmas on a regular basis where you find it hard to come up with the right solution? Then you are just like our 28 Scrum Master colleagues who needed guidance and acknowledgement from management in handling leadership dilemmas. You can also train your dilemma muscle for how to act as a True Leader. You will be introduced to our Scrum Master Dilemma game and how to play it. You will learn how to reflect on different perspectives and how to apply them to your team afterwards. Furthermore, you will hear about our key learnings; 1) creating a safe space for discussing dilemmas makes it easier to share own experiences and learn, 2) Applying learnings from a game into real life requires time and structure, 3) Having the organization acknowledge Scrum Masters as an informal leadership role is hard.
