Report from the Scrumtisch Berlin of January 2018

A report about the February meeting of the Berlin Scrum User Group facilitated by agile42 coaches Javier Pérez and Gregory Keegan

Thanks to everybody who joined the Scrumtisch in Berlin on Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 and special thanks to SAP for providing such great facilities, drinks and eats.


Scrumtisch Berlin January 2018


As so often, we begin by collecting the topics that the audience was interested in talking about. In the end, the roughly 24 participants discussed the following ones in small groups:


  • No estimates in Scrum

  • Priorities focus on agile adoption

  • Agile contracting

  • Team manager and scrum master on the same team?

  • How to grow communities of practice?

  • What to do with a big team of 15 people?

  • Product owner as a proxy


Finally, each group presented to the whole audience the results of their discussions with the agile42 coaches adding their 2 cents when needed.


We hope that you enjoyed as much as we did. Thanks again to everyone who participated.
