It's been a thrilling special event for Berlin Scrumtisch (the Scrum User Group officially approved by the Scrum Alliance). Since a number of European coaches of agile42 were in town for their scheduled European Coach Camp, the Scrumtisch has featured a Meet the Coach night where Certified Scrum Coaches and Certified Scrum Trainers have taken lead on the topics proposed by the audience. The gathering took place at the American Diner Berlin in Friedrichshain, and you can see the sixties-inspired place from the photos!

How does this compare to their product vision statement?

Folks who made this video did not have any video editing experience and they had to learn technology (windows movie maker) and develop content during their sprint working time (20 mins ...

I provide only a passing reference here to this dimension. My presentation here is focussed on the structural and process dimension.

I describe 3 "laws" of scaling. These are observations or empirical laws. Then I set out 10 patterns that I have found helpful over nearly a decade ...
