What is Social Scrum?
The purpose of Social Scrum is to find answers for tough questions using the power of self-organization. There are around 200 people who get certified as Certified ScrumMasters in a month in Pune alone every month. However, most of them don’t get to deliver valuable products using Scrum because of lack of opportunities. Many of them even walk out of CSM workshops with a belief that it won’t work for them. If you believe in power of self-organization and Scrum and you are willing to contribute to Society, this is the opportunity.
Here is the outline of the idea behind this initiative:
1- Form self-organizing teams of volunteers who are willing to explore the solutions for tough social problems.
2- Train them on methods, tools and techniques required to solve the problem that they are picking up. Leanpitch will sponsor the trainings.
3- The team works on the Social cause using Scrum.
4- The team will report their findings to the PlayScrum community at the monthly meetups.
5- Once the team has answers, they get to showcase their work to the community at PlayScrum annual conferences or other conferences.
Who can participate?
• Anybody who doesn't believe in blaming governments for social problems and are willing to contribute to solutions by spending atleast 10 hours a week.
