Event Description

Challenging the Scrum Framework

Not wanting to take anything for granted, let's take the opportunity to pick apart Scrum and attempt to establish our own framework and/or principals:


Setting the stage:
Anthony will share a brief journey as a game designer and why this led him to becoming a passionate Scrum Master focused on 'not simply going through the motions'.

 With that lesson in mind, we'll follow up with an exercise to challenge our own use of Scrum by forming small, self-organized teams challenged with creating our own Agile framework or values based on our experience and foundational principles.

About our speaker:
Anthony chose his career at age six playing the first level of Super Mario Bros.

Since then he's had a career as a Game Designer, Software Developer and Scrum Master for products involving companies such as the NFL, NBA, Apple Arcade and FoxSports.

 Having worked with companies attempting the Scrum Framework for about 12 years, Anthony has discovered the need to understand the "why" we do Scrum and Agile and not "how", and has been on a mission to help teams identify root causes to challenges in order to foster a culture of sustainable success.

Currently, he serves as an Agile Coach for several teams attempting to help clinicians incorporate neurofeedback as part of their therapy sessions.


The NYC Scrum User Group meets monthly to talk about Agile and Scrum, to share experiences, to network, and to provide support for local Scrum practitioners.
