Get in touch
Forty-five Agile enthusiasts met on November 10, 2017 for the annual “Scrum Master Gathering” at AOE. The Open Source Enterprise web developer had invited 45 Scrum Masters from all over Germany, including colleagues from andrena objects, Namics and //Seibert/Media.
The gathering was organized in an Open Space format. At the beginning of the event, the principles of the format were presented and then the individual sessions were planned. For this, the participants introduced those topics, questions and workshops that interest them the most. In five parallel tracks, each lasting 30 minutes, the participants were able to examine and discuss a total of 19 topics.
The 19 topics comprised the entire bandwidth of those areas that a Scrum Master has to consider in his daily work, including “experiences in multiple projects”, “Scrum Guide revisions” and “Scrum/Agile in media production.” Below, we outline some of the most important topics.
Communication in all its facets was one of the most important and visible topics of the event. Here are some of the key issues:
A Scrum Master faces many challenges. Therefore, the following topics weren’t the only ones discussed during the event:
Of course, Agility is the basis for our work as Scrum Masters. Nevertheless, I would like to pick out two topics specifically, which I will introduce briefly:

Agility & Organisation
Digital health collaborations, use cases and business models - exactly our thing! Our healthcare experts led by Alexander Dallmer were at the E-Health Salon in Berlin. In a presentation on agility, they highlighted lessons learned from other industries that are also highly relevant for the healthcare sector. Agility is unfortunately increasingly degenerating into a buzzword: everyone is supposedly working with it, but very few are actually living it. At AOE, we have been working intensively on the subject since our founding in 1999, both in terms of methodology, organization and corporate culture, and in terms of the conditions necessary for it to function efficiently and in fact be practiced. Using real examples from successful agile projects, our presentation will provide inspiration and inspiration for digitization projects in healthcare. Download Presentation (in German)
