The Berlin ScrumTisch (short name for Scrum Round Table) is a great opportunity to get together with other Scrum Practitioners, and discuss about various Scrum and Agile related topics. If you are living, working or just passing by Berlin (Germany) take a chance to join one of our meetings and share your knowledge :-)
How we organize the Scrumtisch
1. Finding the topics
Of course we appreciate proposals upfront for the upcoming Scrumtisch, but mostly people are busy and therefore we collect wishes and questions at the beginning of the event. We write these questions on the "wall" and after we prioritize them. We can make use of electrostatic whiteboard, and a projector. For more information just visit: www.scrumtisch.net
2. Timeboxed discussion
The 2 highest prioritized "Topics" will be discussed. The others are ending up in a backlog for the next Scrumtisch. We focus on each of the 2 topics for 30 min. One of the group is moderating the discussion and takes notes, ideas and hints on the wall. Someone should also take care of writing things down and posting them on the Blog, but unfortunately not always happen... we can improve this :-)
3. Open talks and good food
After the "official" part of the Scrumtisch we are just sitting together, talking in smal groups about the topics or other issues, and enjoying nice food & drinks & conversations.
So everybody is welcome to join the scrumtisch, to share experiences and to learn new things.
Keep it lean an agile :-)
