Adapting to change has become personal
The Scrum Master role was already hard enough. Then the COVID-19 pandemic sent us home from the office and suddenly Scrum Masters are trying to lead team development between people scattered around homes and office locations who interact mainly via text in instant messaging. This sudden change from face-to-face to hybrid or all remote challenges Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches and other Agile leaders to adapt to the change. Data that we collected last week revealed that many of us are still struggling with such adaptions.
During July we ran an 'IT and digital learning' survey to help participants think about their own and their teams' IT and digital career aspirations, learning paths, and COVID-19's impact on these. At the same time we were keen to continuously improve how we help IT and digital professionals and teams learn in a rapidly changing world.
