Agile Portugal 2011. June 20-22

Black Magic of the Advanced Scrum Master

Talk, by Gil Nahmias
Tuesday, June 21, 11:00 – 12:30 @ B 002

We are told everywhere that a Scrum Master should: facilitate, negotiate, nudge, challenge, encourage, motivate, etc. The question is HOW?

This talk gives a list of techniques to actually achieve it: Ways to get them to like you, to trust you, negotiation tips, handling resistance, establishing leadership, motivating teams and even some unethical tactics…

The talk is aimed at Scrum Masters, Managers, Infulential managers and everyone who wants to learn secrets of being a people wizard.

It was given in Agile Israel 2011 (#agileil11), along with music, candles, dry-ice smoke (for the Scrum Master potion) and many other surprises. Feedbacks were pointing this talk as ‘the best show in town’. What to expect? Fun, tons of techniques and fresh ideas.
