As a follow-up to https://www.meta-cast.com/episode/episode-192-bob-is-done-with-scrum (Episode 192), we adopt a similar stance to https://www.meta-cast.com/episode/episode-193-youre-a-scrum-master-now-what (Episode 193) and take a "now what?" stance. In 192, Bob was really fired up about some issues he sees across the agile world. What should our listeners do with that info? This episode attacks that question head-on. Is Scrum really that bad? Is Scrum even the issue? What do you think? Let's discuss!!! Keep The Conversation Going: We love our community.

https://www.meta-cast.com/episode/episode-189-get-your-first-scrum-master-job (Episode 189 )covered how to get your first Scrum Master job. Quite a few of our listeners recently landed their first Scrum Master gigs, so we though it might be helpful to offer up a few tips & tricks for the first few weeks in a new role. We believe that much of this advice can apply to any role, so definitely give it a listen to see how it can help you! What advice would you have for anyone transitioning into a new role.

Bob's Diversity & Inclusion Links Charlotte - Women in Agile & Dottie Rose As I mentioned, Rhiannon and I shared a D&I talk recently at the Charlotte Women in Agile group - https://www.meetup.com/WIA-Charlotte/events/276693551/ (https://www.meetup.com/WIA-Charlotte/events/276693551/) In that session, two folks from the Dottie Rose Foundation spoke about some work they were involved in bringing STEM and computer training to young girls/women in Kenya. It inspired me and Dottie Rose sounds like a wonderful organization with a mission that aligns with our Meta-cast vision: https://dottierosefoundation.org/ (https://dottierosefoundation.org/) African Agility This is the group I've been supporting for around a year. I was introduced to them thru Aanu Gopald. They're doing fantastic work in Nigeria. I actually donate regularly to these folks based on proceeds from my CAL classes. VERY worthwhile! https://africaagility.org/ (https://africaagility.org/) Fresh Agile Voices A friend of mine, Anthony Mersino, has begun to do short recordings intended to get new voices, diverse voices a stage or platform to be heard. He calls it Fresh Agile Voices. He recently invited me to record a session talking about my focus and passion around my (and OUR) D&I efforts. You can see the series here - https://vitalitychicago.com/?s=fresh+agile+voices&post_type=post (https://vitalitychicago.com/?s=fresh+agile+voices&post_type=post) The recording isn't "live" yet.

Wow. Bob is fired up! Hear why Bob is fed up with Scrum (note the uppdercase "S", because it is intentional) and why he thinks it's doing more damage than good for the agile community (note the lowercase "a").
