The Ki to ScrumMastery - stories on the subtle art of creating transparency

In this session we tell stories of post-heroic servant leadership from three cities in two continents that draw out reality and leave people feeling that they achieved breakthrough results themselves. Leadership that broke down barriers (very literally!), eliminated distrust and dysfunction, socialised issues and facilitated decision-making that saved a high-stakes project and transformed the culture to an environment of empowerment and candour.

Using these stories as inspiration, participants identify examples of increasing transparency across widely used Scrum artefacts such as Product Backlog and events such as Sprint Review.
