Webinar: Using the Impediment List

This is another in our $5 Webinar Series.

Topic: Using the Impediment List

We are excited about this webinar.  We have been a strong advocate for the Impediment List pattern for years.  We believe good usage of it can make a big difference.

Impediment List is a key pattern in Jeff Sutherland’s and James Coplien’s (et al) book – A Scrum Book.

Here are some key related issues:

  • The Impediment List is part of a culture of continuous improvement
  • Improving sounds to many people (some of the implementers commonly) like: “Oh, God, they want to us to work harder, more hours.”  This attitude is not good.
  • “Work smarter, not harder.”
  • Have a vision.  I will propose a vision that includes higher happiness and fewer hours (at least in the normal situations I see).
  • What is an impediment?  (Anything that could help the (whole) Team improve.)
  • How to prioritize
  • How to break them into small chunks
  • When are impediments identified
  • Should we track impediments that have been fixed or mitigated
  • Getting practical

In this hour webinar, we hope to touch on all of these.


I think we will have a lively discussion.

Date: Friday, October 23rd, 2020 at 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm EDT.  1 hour.
