"Scrum Patterns | A Scrum book" meetups in Singapore
About meetup
Scrum Patterns Singapore meetup was inspired by similar events happening all over the world. We see the mission of this meetup in promoting professional Scrum and helping Agile practitioners with Scrum adoption by tapping into the collective wisdom of the community. Singapore-based meetup is hosted on Meetup.com platform.
The first meetup was hosted on the 11th of June 2020.

What Scrum patterns are?
"While the Scrum Guide provides the basic rules of Scrum, the patterns amplify the guide by showing teams how to solve problems in a specific context" - Jeff Sutherland
The current set of Scrum Patterns has been collected and documented in the book "A Scrum book" written by the group of enthusiasts and published in 2019.

What do we do?
We gather every month to delve into the theory of Scrum Patterns, explore 2-3 selected patterns and discuss the related experience.

Who comes to these sessions?
Scrum Masters, Agile coaches, anyone with some experience in Scrum and willing to learn more is welcome.

Why do I consider joining?
People joining will get a deeper understanding of the Scrum patterns: how to fix broken Scrum, use in retrospectives, plan Scrum adoption, and will also learn from other participants' experiences.

FAQ
Question:
Is it some sort of lecture or presentation?
Answer:
No, we follow the principles of "Teaching from the back of the room" and believe that the best learning experience occurs when participants are involved in the exploration of a topic.
Question:
I'm not quite familiar with Mural, what can I do to become proficient enough to use it during an event?
Answer:
We provide a special sandbox where you can practice navigation and creating post-its in Mural. Here is a link - Please use this common space responsibly, it isn't being moderated.
Question:
I haven't read "A Scrum book", does it make any sense to participate in a meetup?
Answer:
The knowledge of patterns is not required to be an effective participant. We share in advance links to the patterns selected for discussion, so you'll have enough time to get familiar with them. Every meetup starts with a crash course to Scrum Patterns.
Question:
How can I get a link to a Zoom call?
Answer:
The link to a zoom call will be published at the meetup page of Scrum Patterns meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Singapore-Scrum-Patterns-Meetup-Group/). Find the meetup announcement and the link will be there.
Question:
How can I be updated about upcoming meetups?
Answer:
Join Singapore Scrum Patterns Meetup group at Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Singapore-Scrum-Patterns-Meetup-Group/) and we'll keep you posted. Alternatively, check occasionally this page and section "Past and future events".
