Is the Scrum Framework too hard to understand? Discussed with trainers Magda, Kate, & Pawel

Is the Scrum Framework too hard to understand? Discussed with trainers Magda, Kate, & Pawel
Recorded in Paris, at the Scrum.org Face to Face event for Professional Scrum Trainers (PST). Scrum Facilitators own PST Sjoerd hosts Magdalena Kucharska, Kate Hobler and Pawel Mysliwiec. In this episode of the Scrum Facilitators Community Podcast, the participants discuss the topic of understanding Scrum and the challenges associated with it. They address the perception that if people don't understand Scrum, the problem may lie within the framework itself. They emphasize that Scrum can be difficult to understand due to its complex nature and the presence of numerous myths surrounding it. The participants also highlight the importance of experienced coaches and facilitators who can guide individuals and organizations in adopting Scrum effectively. They suggest that the Scrum Guide, while deceptively simple, requires a specific mindset to fully comprehend its principles and apply them in practice. The podcast participants offer suggestions for potential improvements to the Scrum Guide, such as rephrasing certain terms and clarifying misconceptions. Overall, the conversation revolves around enhancing the understanding and application of Scrum to achieve better value delivery and collaboration.A big thanks goes out to my guests and colleagues for their courage to discuss this topic that came out of a ‘controversial statements’ brainstorm. I really wanted to discuss this topic, because Scrum experts can have a tendency to downplay or straight up strawman people’s struggles or grievances with Scrum,  by responding ”you are doing it wrong” and/or “you don’t really understand Scrum”. It was an interesting and insightful experience to discuss this topic with a group of Trainers whose job it is to guide and teach Scrum to improve teams and organizations effectiveness , by helping people understand Scrum and benefit from the framework. Links:Scrum Guide - https://scrumguides.orgMagdalena - https://www.linkedin.com/in/magdalena-kucharska-82b676a1Kate - https://www.linkedin.com/in/kate-hoblerPawel - https://www.linkedin.com/in/pawelmysliwiecSjoerd - https://www.linkedin.com/in/sjoerdkranendonkScrum Facilitators - https://www.scrumfacilitators.comSF Original Conference - https://sfconference.nl (a few tickets left on june 7 2023!)Are you working with Scrum/Agile and have similar stories and tips to share?

Scrum's Commitments: Muddy or clear? - Fredrik Wendt

Scrum's Commitments: Muddy or clear? - Fredrik Wendt
In this special video episode, Fredrik Wendt discusses a thing that he finds strange in how the Commitments are set up in the current Scrum Guide (SG2020). The Commitments are not all of the same kind, which makes understanding the groupings and how we can use them to improve and guide value delivery (and quality) more difficult for Scrum practitioners. After listening to this episode we hope you walk away with sharper understanding of Scrum's Commitments, their importance AND their differences. Are you listening to this without visuals? Please also check out the video on our Youtube channel, as Fredrik supports his reasoning with visuals which makes the argument even easier to follow. Find the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6rttY6pSFsIf you like this kind of focused, detailed exploration of Scrum's details, please let us know, because as Scrum-Nerds we can certainly do more (with Fredrik and/or other guests).Want to learn more from Fredrik, please check out the previous episode we recorded with Fredrik, about influence and value.Have any other feedback?

I hope you learn from it too!Meta note: we're getting back in the podcasting saddle, and this chat is a shippable increment that we feel is valuable, even though I myself am not content with the, ehhhh, quality.
