There is a great framework for teaching people about Scrum. It is called Scrum. Oddly, many Scrum trainers and facilitators forget about it, creating very incongruous experiences for the participants. We still get caught up in a training mindset, believing the trainer to be the expert, and expecting the group to hang on to our every word. But teaching Scrum is not training, it is exploration [ref]. There are many good techniques for keeping workshops open, dynamic, Scrum-infected, and engaging. There are also many techniques that should be avoided. I may write something about the former in a future post, but today I am focusing on what not to do.
