Role of scrum master in the world of disruptive technology

In today's world, disruptive technology is one that changes the way we think, behave or conduct business.

It uproots traditional thinking and alters the way we do business.

Disruptive technology is not just about innovation or new inventions but rather change in current customer experience. The business is going to be impacted by a disruptive technology that is around the corner.

Technological disrupters are on a disruptive trajectory, then they are direct threat to future business of incumbent. Because disruption can take time, incumbents frequently overlook disrupters. It is essential to understand path of disrupters and prepare to counter it.

Every one in the organization has a role to play to counter the disrupters, continue in path of sustained innovation or be a disrupter

It is essential to understand the role of the scrum master in this environment.

    Vamsi Krishna Kakkireni - Are you delivering "VALUE" to customer? - PLS DO SIR

    45 Mins

    What keeps a business ticking? Customer value.

    • Do you know that 75% of consumers are willing to pay more if they love the product?
    • Have you realized that around 60% of features in a product are rarely or never used.

    With this, it is evident that users do not buy or use all that you build and they pay more if they love it. Hence it is important to plan, prioritize and produce as per customer value. But what makes a product lovable and how to win customers?

    In this session, I am going to discuss in detail about the new techniques i.e. "PLS DO SIR" which I have implemented with 10+ Scrum teams, how to make a product lovable, how asking the right questions helped us in uncovering issues, how to build undaunted teams and when to engage customers.

    You can deliver great "VALUE" to your customer if you can take care of the above.
