Two Scrums Up
Participation, Power dynamics, and Engaging diverse perspectives, with Linda Rosenbury
March 16, 2021
Sarah Rose Belok & John Ragozzine, Certified Scrum Masters
How might we practice what we know to be true in theory: in SCRUM, the more team members who are able to exercise their voice, the better the final product will be.
In this episode, we learn from Linda Rosenbury— superintendent of schools in Washington State and Doctoral Student at Harvard's Educational Leadership Program. Linda's experience working with adults from diverse racial, socio-economic and linguistic backgrounds crystallizes specific strategies for engaging all voices to participate so teams talk during meetings instead of later at the Slack water cooler.

Humble Inquiry by Edgar E. Shein
Be transparent about where we're at. Only record show when we're both ready.
Tell me where your head is at. This will help us adapt to our moods and tones.
Share the mic. Push for equity of voice in recording and editing.
- Respect each other's privacy.
Use 'I'. Avoid broad generalizations.
Speak your truth. Stay positive, but honest.
Ask WHY. If something's unclear, we push each other to clarify.
We make decisions together. Nothing goes live unless we are both happy.
- We will make mistakes, tell me when so I can learn.
