The Roles in Depth – The Events workshop is a 2-day event, designed for any group that really wants to understand and optimise the way they conduct agile events (meetings).

During both parts the purpose of each event is clarified, who should attend the event is identified and how often the event runs is decided. During the second part, Product Owners and Scrum Masters work closely together to optimise each event for their team and also decide the agendas for all the events.

The workshop consists of two parts:

  • Management events
  • Team events

Unlike other agile approaches, our workshop builds a thorough understanding of all events and aligns everyone around the need for them. This helps to justify every event, avoiding unnecessary discussions.

The attendees leave the workshop with a deep understanding of the agile events, their purpose, expected outcome, how much time to spend on them and agreed agendas for the team events.

Benefits Covered

The major benefit after a completed workshop is the deep understanding of all agile events. His will drastically improve your agile organisation’s ability to deliver.


Management’s understanding of the events will ensure that the events are producing the desired outcomes


Managers will support their delivery bodies and teams, which leads to optimised results


Scrum Masters and Product Owners working together with the team events will drastically improve the quality of every event


Scrum Masters’ and Product Owners’ mutual understanding of the events ensures their teams conduct time-efficient meetings


Scrum Masters and Product Owners will be able to explain each event’s purpose for their teams, which will increase the team’s understanding

The delivery of a successful workshop would be achieved through the following four steps:

This workshop can also be delivered as a course, in which case all agendas will be given to the attendees and discussed during the course, instead of producing them in the workshop.
