Title of Paper:
Facilitating Scrum Events That Activate your Brain using neuro science
Summary of Paper:
Inspired by the 6 trumps of Sharon Bowmans’ Training From the Back of The Room, there will be an exploration on how one can use Brain Science to keep Scrum Events live, active and worthwhile.
To get the most out of the Scrum Events she tried a lot of things. She experimented with formats and setups. Did a Facilitator training and looked for interesting games and Sprint Retrospective formats. But she never looked further than that. Until she did the Training From the Back of The Room and was intrigued by how the brain works in a training and learning setting.
Learning more about the human brain she figured out one could also use Brain Science to keep the Scrum Events alive and worthwhile.
In this session one will learn about neuroscience and how you can use it to activate your brain and make your Scrum Events alive and active.
