Scrumtisch Berlin met again in February 2016 and this time we were at Café 100 Wasser in Friedrichshain. It was a full house with more than 60 Scrum practitioners. Standing room only! The session was facilitated by Gregory Keegan (CSM,CSP,CTC) and Andrea Tomasini (CST,CSC) who gave his expert advice to people who raised issues or problems they were facing in their organisation.
