Dot Tudor of TCC, with inspiration from an old Polish proverb and an uplifting tale of the lights and sounds of the circus, will take us on a journey through concepts such as Accountability, Responsibility, Empowerment and Freedom. We will consider these concepts in the context of Scrum Values, contemplating how they have the power to both devalue or enhance these values. Once we understand this we can better appreciate what it is that differentiates the best and highest performing individuals and teams, so that we can ensure that our own teams are exciting and productive environments in which to do our best work.
“Freedom does not consist of being bounded by no law, but by laws that are, in some sense, of one’s own making.” – Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Philosopher), 1712 – 1778.
It is my hope that the topics we consider within this talk will help you to make your own “laws”; laws that facilitate Freedom within your team and allow individuals to feel Empowered to play their part…
…all with a little help from Hollywood.
