Perfectly located in the City of London, the Scrum Exchange is the foremost UK venue for trading ideas and knowledge—a unique exchange where everyone comes away richer.
The Scrum Exchange is an occasional event hosted by Tobias Mayer. Its purpose is to bring together dedicated and passionate Scrum practitioners of various levels of experience, in order to share their ideas, insights, stories, interactive exercises and methods of coaching with one another, so that the Scrum community as a whole grows stronger, closer, more thoughtful, and more supportive.
This is not a conference. There are no name badges, no tracks, no keynotes, no superstars, no leaders, no pre-ordered corporate lunches, and no product promotion or sponsorship.
Each Exchange has a space-holding facilitator who will offer light-touch opening and closing activities, and maintain the framework for the day. The program is created on the day, by whoever is there. Everyone is an equal participant and can choose to do as much or as little as they like.
Occasionally guest facilitators will be invited to offer sessions on specific topics of interest.
Periods of reflection will occur throughout the day to share learnings, adjust the agenda, raise (and resolve) concerns, assess value and find ways to improve on the fly. Participants take responsibility to meet their own needs and to serve the group as a whole.
The event runs from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm. Participants are encouraged to arrive at 9.30. Tea, coffee, pastries and fruit will be served for breakfast, and various cold drinks and snacks throughout the day. Lunch will be a self-organized experience. 42 Acres is close to a street food market and various cafes.This event is limited to fifty people.
Responses to previous Scrum Exchange events
It was not a conference! — Paul Marshall
“I highly recommend The Scrum Exchange. After spending the day experimenting with workshop ideas, taking part in retrospectives, futurespectives, example mapping, listening to industry experts impart their wisdom, learning more about coaching individuals and teams (yes all in one day!), I have a full head and heart. Thanks for creating a safe, open and powerful environment to learn and grow.” — Noel Warnell
