Practice Patience: An Experience Report

In part three of this blog series, Brian and Ian review how a team played the Practice Patience game. They had been a Scrum team for over 6 months and were used to holding more traditional open ‘brainstorming’ style of retrospectives. The article reviews their experience with the cards guiding them to improve their application of Scrum, including some quotes from their Scrum Master.

Ivar Jacobson International produced the cards in conjunction with Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum - applying the Essence standard to build a helpful reference guide to the essential elements of Scrum. The cards make it easier to communicate with team members, improve team collaboration and provide better overviews.

Introduction to the Scrum Essentials

IJI has recently had the pleasure of working with Jeff Sutherland on a set of Essence cards that faithfully represent the Scrum Guide. As well as acting as a handy physical, and online glossary, the cards can be used to play games and help us all get better Scrum.

In this new blog series, Brian Kerr and Ian Spence present a selection of the games you can play using the Scrum practice cards and, in some cases, other cards from Essence itself or from other complementary practices.
