When: February 12th, 2019
Where: Laapersveld 27, Hilversum
Please note: This session is in Dutch.

Inspired by the 6 trumps of Sharon Bowmans’ Training From the Back of The Room, there will be an exploration on how one can use Brain Science to keep Scrum Events live, active and worthwhile.

To get the most out of the Scrum Events I tried a lot of things. I experimented with formats and setups. Did a 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.

Liberating Structures

Have you been in endless brainstorm sessions with no outcome? Round table discussions with no results? When you feel included and engaged, do you do a better job? Do you think teams in which people work well together produce much better results? Have you noticed the best ideas often come from unexpected sources?

If YES, with Liberating Structures you learn new techniques to get more value from people in your team and organization!

Liberating Structures are simple rules that make it easy to include and unleash everyone. 

In this Open Kitchen you'll learn about neuroscience and Liberating Structures on how you can use it to activate your brain and make your Scrum Events alive and active. Bring your Brain!

The session is in Dutch. It is free of charge, seats are limited.
