Marc Loeffler

Marc Loeffler is an agile coach, author and trainer. Before getting in touch with agile methods and principles in 2006, he was working as a traditional project manager for companies like the Volkswagen AG or the Siemens AG. His passion is to help teams implementing agile frameworks like Scrum and XP and to transform our world of work. Marc has a passion for helping teams that are struggling with agile transitions and overcoming dysfunctional behavior. He loves to generate new insights by approaching common problems from the other side and trying to make deliberately havoc of the process.

The systemic Scrum Master

Most Scrum Masters are quite fluent in "Scrum", but they lack experience in System and Complexity Thinking. Most projects don't fail because of the wrong tools, but because of people and a missing understanding about the system that we are all part of. I'll share stories about real world teams and their struggles with the system around them and talk about how a more systemic approach helped them. At the end of the talk you'll have a better understanding of system and complexity thinking and the needed mindset, as well as some tools that will help you on your systemic journey.

IMHO the talk will be valuable for Scrum Masters, Product Owners and Agile Managers, who have a feeling that they got stuck and are in need for something different, the Scrum framework cannot provide.
