FAQs LIVE Special: What does the new Scrum Guide mean for us?

The November 2020 version of the Scrum Guide is set to be the biggest shakeup of the world’s most widely used agile framework in recent memory. We know so far that it is being cut from 19 pages down to 13, and is billed as “leaner, and more focused” than ever before.

The Scrum Guide has been subject to constant debate and opinion over its 25-year history. Is it too software focused? Are the rules too inflexible? Must we insist that people dutifully recite what they did yesterday and plan to do today? Do we really have to call it a backlog?

In this free webinar, all three of Agility in Mind’s Professional Scrum Trainers will open the box to reveal the exciting new version of Scrum. We’re expecting some significant changes, which we will discuss as a panel, as well as making time for your questions.

  • The new Scrum Guide 2020 – headline changes (yet to be announced!)
  • Q&A
  • What changes if any, should Scrum teams consider making now?
  • Q&A
  • What opportunities does the new Scrum format open up for teams not currently using Scrum?
  • Q&A

What our customers think

Really great session! Thank you so much for this. Loved the format of content then space to ask / discuss areas. Loved the dynamic between Duncan and Brian, and how they had each others’ back. Shamin, A
Good structure with focus of useful themes, split between requirements management and delivery approaches. Good knowledge and depth of experience to relevant response to question to real-world practical implementation of what works well. Great presenters Tim Smart
It allowed us to ask specific questions around SAFe, as opposed to being a generalised overview. It was also interesting to hear from other people, and the kind of questions they had Lorna Mason
It was a good opportunity for people to ask a range of questions of a couple of people who clearly know a lot about the subject matter.Nathan Dean
The format was great – 2 to 3 special topics followed by an open q&a. It was never boring and the presenters knew what they were talking about. ”Anonymous”
