By the end of this project, you will have created a Scrum Master’s toolbox of interactive websites and games you can use to improve communication, increase cohesion and camaraderie, and facilitate a smoother sprint experience. In every Scrum ceremony, there are opportunities to inspire improved teamwork and help your team build professional bonds that will make them more effective. Scrum should allow developers to double their output in half the time, as the saying goes, but solid teamwork is necessary to work efficiently. Using online tools and including games will build engagement and interest in team members and offer an opportunity for the Scrum Master to step back and observe, find weak points, and facilitate improvements. Whether distributed or collocated, your team will build strength and efficiency with the toolbox you will build. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
