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.

You can't escape them. Buzzwords are EVERYWHERE!!! Unfortunately, they crop up at the worst times because buzzwords are often called into action when the speaker isn't completely clear on what the buzzword actually means.

Bob and Josh look forward to 2021 to help you kick off the new year with a renewed fire. A common theme of the discussion centers around the never-ending battle each of us must fight to prevent ourselves from being pickled by our surroundings. What other tools/tricks do you used to prevent this? Be the change agent you/your team/your company/your family needs!!! Bonus Content: We keep rolling with our Diversity and Inclusion Minutes and dig a little deeper on how we hope to see continued efforts/improvements in this area throughout 2021 and beyond. In support of our discussion, here are a couple of blog posts from Bob: https://www.agile-moose.com/blog/2020/8/28/mad-scientist-diversity (https://www.agile-moose.com/blog/2020/8/28/mad-scientist-diversity) https://www.agile-moose.com/blog/2020/8/28/mad-scientist-inclusion (https://www.agile-moose.com/blog/2020/8/28/mad-scientist-inclusion) Help Us Spread The Word:  Love our content? Help us out by sharing on social media, rating our podcast/episodes on https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/meta-cast-podcast-for-software/id356489089?mt=2 (iTunes), or by giving to our https://www.patreon.com/metahyphencast (Patreon) campaign. Every time you give, in any way, you empower our mission of helping as many agilists as possible. Thanks for sharing!

In https://www.meta-cast.com/episode/episode-180-product-owners-in-2020 (Episode 180), Josh attempted to explain how Eric Hannan, friend of the podcast, was evolving the role of product owners at his previous job. The attempt was valiant, but ultimately failed to deliver any real clarity. 😀 To remedy that situation, we asked Eric to join us for this episode and provide some insight around his efforts. Paired with those insights are a few well deserved barbs thrown Bob's way for some of the conclusions he jumped to a little too quickly about Eric's approach in Episode 180.

"It's 2020. What do you expect?" We hear that a lot these days, and understandably so. 2020 presented each of us with a unique, and often brand new, set of challenges.

George Costanza: You're giving me the "it's not you, it's me" routine? I invented "it's not you, it's me!" Nobody tells me it's them, not me!

Don't blame a framework. Don't blame an article you read or a podcast you listened to. Own it. Listen to this episode. Dust yourself, and your team, off, and start iterating on your agile adoption! Speaking of owning it. We know the audio quality on this episode is lackluster. Thankfully, we expect this to be our last remote recording.
