Scrum Agile Project Management

The Inner Work of a Scrum Coach

This talk provides a is a reflection on what Michael De La Maza has learned as an Agile Coach about communication, emotional stress and team organization.

In this talk, Michael De La Maza describes how he:
* Learned to communicate through conflict. We will walk through King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” as an illustration of the non-violent belief system.
* Reduced the Plan-Do-Check-Adjust cycle time on his biophysiological state by three orders of magnitude. We will examine how to use heart rate as a measure of emotional stress.
* Freed himself from financial panic. We will walk through different models of agile coaching.
* Reconciled academic findings in social psychology with the US Constitution. We will watch a video which shows how drug dealers operate and how this is similar to the way that mature agile teams function.
