More Physical and Digital tools for Scrum Masters and their teams
A couple of months ago I blogged about some of the tools and toys that live in the trunk of my car. I take these along everywhere I teach and coach. Since posting, people have suggested additional items that just must be in my toolbox.
Time Timer Plus
Time-boxing is an important component of Scrum. It provides focus towards a goal and prevents you from over-analyzing things. We use time boxes extensively in each Professional Scrum class.
This lightweight, large timer helps visualize the time-box clearly to the class without having to juggle tools on screen.
Thanks: Evelien Roos and Just Meddens for this tip.
Logitech R800/700 and Spotlight
I’m using a trusty old Logitech Wireless presenter R800/700. It’s easy to use, has a laser pointer that works no matter what you point it at and has a built-in timer that can be used to warn you when you’ve been talking for far too long.
