Dive into a Scrum Lake Workshop

Scrum Lake workshops are scheduled every few weeks, each workshop is unique owing to the diversity of attendees and stories from around the World. You and your fellow divers will explore together.

Immerse yourself in a Scrum Lake Workshop, and Dive much Deeper into Scrum

For people interested in Scrum, Scrum Lake is a place to share stories, discuss techniques and take a deeper dive into Scrum theory, practice and reality. Our engaging workshops bring Scrum Masters and coaches from around the world to work together. Together, we deepen our understanding of Scrum through a shared experience.

In this two hour virtual workshop, the participants will choose where they want to explore as a group. Do they want to look at individual values and how these manifest? Do they want to dive into how transparency, inspection and adaptation build trust? Do they want to explore how empiricism and Lean thinking combine to form Scrum's DNA?  Explore Artifacts, Events or Accountabilities much deeper than you ever thought was possible. Anything is possible in Scrum Lake, the route we take through the lake is decided on by the participants in the workshop, we Explore more deeply together.

These workshops are for everyone. The only requirement is that you have some involvement with Scrum's application. This can be as a developer, Scrum Master, Product Owner or stakeholder.

Scrum lake is Mind-Expanding - Gregory Miller, Ohio -  Coach, Trainer, Speaker and Podcast Host of "The Agile Within Podcast"

"Scrum Lake is the best community gathering I’ve ever been to. They are very welcoming to all regardless of your experience. I’d recommend this to anyone looking to grow knowledge and share experiences. The amount of they put into the visuals is truly amazing. It’s also very interactive and not boring at all. You are not talked to but rather invited into the conversation"

Diving deep! - Marion Barry, Berlin - CSM® | PSM I | SAFe (5.0)) ⋆ Design Thinker

"Once again, John and Ryan created a wonderful workshop, Scrum Lake, where we examined events within scrum framework and "dived deep".

What is Scrum Lake?

Scrum Lake is a metaphor for the Scrum framework. Our lake is a container for other metaphors such as a submarine and explorers (Scrum Team and Accountabilities), a ship (events), items that represent work or value (artefacts and commitments to), Bedrock (The Values of Commitment, Courage, Focus, Openness and Respect) and the Sedimentary layers (Scrum Theory and Empiricism) plus many more to visualise and help folks to connect more deeply.  Our metaphors and images are all carefully crafted to promote discussion of tough concepts. Importantly, these are the metaphors we have designed. Don't like them? Come up with your own and share it with the participants. Metaphors are powerful if they are emotional and personal. Buy into ours, or craft your own!

What are the workshops all about?

Using a pre-prepared canvas, you and your fellow explorers will dive into Scrum Lake. In a typical two hour event, you will co-create the journey through the lake as a team, supported by experienced Scrum Masters (Dive Masters) at all times.

Scrum Lake Co-Creative Canvas

Do you want to investigate how you can make the artefacts in Scrum Lake more transparent? Take a deeper look at Scrum theory? Investigate how poorly defined accountabilities can impact your Scrum Team? How does empiricism flow and come to life building trust and how does it does link into the embodiment of values? These are the kind of questions we explore in Scrum Lake, we exploring them in a human way sharing our stories with each and exploring the reality, and what can be. It's all there... within our shared experience as John and Ryan expertly facilitate the Scrum Lake Workshop.
