Scrum Gathering 2018 Speaker Abstract – Faye Thompson 2018-10-14T20:44:53+00:00

We still rely on outdated notions of how learning in the workplace works. We will discuss creating psychologically safe spaces where teams can question, experiment, and explore. Together, we will experiment with designing environments that support learning and continuous improvement.

Our understanding of how humans learn has grown tremendously in the last 20 years. Providing an environment in which people have room to think, and the safety to experiment and adapt is key. We will review fundamental concepts of neuroscience and how they intersect with organizational behavior. We will also review how the agile mindset takes advantage of these concepts. From there, we can begin to envision the conditions that will provide the greatest opportunity for learning and continuous improvement. Together, we will share ideas on how we can start to transform our environments into safe spaces where teams can grow and thrive.
