Anyone who cares about working more effectively, and in a more engaged fashion. Agile novices, experts and anyone in between will find value here.
Using words, a short slide presentation, and (if time) a game or two, I'll dig into why we do what we do when we attempt Scrum. Using the five principles of Focus, Alignment, Self-organization, Artful Making (true collaboration) and Rhythm, which I believe are the foundation of effective and engaged work I'll demonstrate how Scrum (and Kanban, Lean, or any other "process" people choose to use) can begin to make intuitive sense to its practitioners, once they understand the inherent value of these principles.
In 50-60 minutes this can only be touched on briefly, hence the talk + slides format. This is an introduction only. I am developing a full-day workshop centered on these five principles, which will be a fully interactive experience.

I gave this talk at recent BayALN event. It received good feedback, and I was asked to submit it here. I also gave an earlier version of this talk, entitled "Dogma-free Scrum" at the Scrum gathering in London, Oct. 2011. It also received good feedback.
