Psychological Models in Scrum with Kate Terlecka
Learning, responsibility and power – the three psychological models very useful in a Scrum Master’s daily work.
Scrum Masters, while working with teams, battle multiple problems and dysfunctions.
Having three lines of responsibility – towards the Development Team, the Product Owner and the Organization – they tackle different problems in those areas, but they often originate at one point.
While working with those three beings, it’s crucial to understand how humans acquire skills and how to tell if what one’s doing is helping them or yanking them back. Let’s also pay attention to what responsibility is and how to help install it in our neighborhood.
But all needs to be based on the proper form of power, otherwise it might turn against you. We’ll also peek at a piece of human biochemistry to understand the biological processes happening in one’s body when certain powers are being utilized.

Bullying in Project Management: A Global Challenge
This webinar introduces the issue of workplace bullying and its impact on projects and project managers. Bullying can be as harmful in the workplace and on projects as it is in schools and other areas of society. Projects are subsets of workplaces and since project management is, for the most part, an activity that involves working very closely with others, the impact of a bully in a project is potentially lethal to project success.
The webinar’s main discussion points include the following:
- defining workplace bullying;
- identifying traits of bullies;
- identifying who get’s targeted;
- outlining the impacts of bullying on projects;
- discussing the health impacts of bullying;
- noting that workplace bullying is increasing;
- and providing an anti-bullying action plan for project managers.
There is a whitepaper that accompanies the webinar. It provides more detail and research about bullying in project management. It also discusses actions that employers, project managers and targets/victims can take when confronted with workplace disrespect.
Project managers around the world are becoming more informed of the many negative impacts and costs associated with workplace bullying. If employers, project managers and senior executives take initiative in addressing bullying early on, much larger financial, ethical, legal, human resource and project problems will be avoided.Eventually, these initiatives will lead to wider support for zero tolerance for bullying in the workplace regardless of circumstance, societal norm, or jurisdiction.

Every organization can improve how projects are managed. The question is what components of project management should be improved? And specifically, what should change?
In any problem solving situation, the root cause of a given condition must be known so that a real solution can be identified and proven assessments can be used to both uncover the root causes and also to form the basis for identification of specific improvement actions. This seminar addresses these topics.
A free assessment tool is available and time for Q&A is included.
The attendee will learn:
- What types of assessments are appropriate for projects and for organizations
- How assessments can be used to surface improvement areas and strengths
- A process to employ the assessment to allow students to do it right away
- How multi-dimensional solutions are defined and implemented
