Using Safe and Brave Spaces to Stimulate Change



Jem Djelal discusses the difference between a safe space and a brave one, how to distinguish between them, the pros & cons, how to move from a safe to a brave space, and patterns to use.


Jem Djelal is a coach who fell into ScrumMaster in 2005 and hasn’t looked back since. Having served over 150+ teams with over 40 roles he has had plenty of opportunities to put Agile & Scrum theory into practice, with many failures to my name. His time is split coaching individuals & teams with regular Agile classroom training.

About the conference

Aginext is for advanced agilists. That means we need to listen to feedback and be eager to adapt to change. The COVID-19 pandemic makes our conference untenable in its existing co-located form. After careful consideration and collaboration with our team, our brilliant speakers, and our venue, we are moving the 2020 Aginext Conference Online.
